For many years the Old Dominion 500 was known as the Subway 500 and Goody’s Fast Relief 500, and apparently Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson are both big fans of the restaurant chain as they combined to win all five runnings of the race with that name. But now the Chase to the Sprint Cup event at Martinsville Speedway is named after a product you might need after eating a little too much at Subway. Of course no one other than the corporate sponsors really care what the race is called, but you can bet that a lot of people care about getting 2017 Old Dominion 500 tickets because as the sixth race in “The Chase” this one is where the standings really start take shape and the true contenders emerge. To use a basketball term, you could even say that after this race the field of 12 Chase to the Sprint Cup drivers will be cut down to the Final Four who still have a realistic chance to take the title.
One thing to remember about the Martinsville Fall race is that it generally starts a little earlier than the typical NASCAR race because Martinsville doesn’t have lights and the early evening shadows can make things treacherous for the drivers. Of course the plus side to that is that you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy yourself and celebrate with other fans after the races as well.
Martinsville Speedway is one of the smaller tracks in NASCAR, both in terms of seating capacity (65,000) and length (a shade over ½ mile). It’s also one of the sport’s most historic tracks, with a history dating back to 1947. Martinsville might have been Richard Petty’s favorite track as well, because The King won 15 races there.
Martinsville is also the host of the STP 500, which is traditionally run in late March or early April. Contact us today to reserve your Old Dominion 500 package.
