Martinsville Speedway leaving Ross Chastain’s stripe on the wall until race weekend

Racing will return to Martinsville in April for a 3-day weekend of races starting with the NASCAR Truck Series on April 14, the Xfinity Series on April 15, and the Cup Series on April 16.

Until then, the “stripe” [from the final lap of the fall race] in Turns 3 and 4, put there by the incredible move by [Ross] Chastain, will remain for fans who want to go by the track and see where history was made in front of a sold out crowd.

“It’s going to stay up until race week in April,” Campbell said of the markings on the wall left by Chastain. “We’ve got so many people stopping by here, taking pictures. It’s an historical moment, and we’re going to do our best to preserve it all that we can.

“It was one move that go so much exposure, not only for Martinsville Speedway, but for the sport… That move will go down in history and it will be there forever.”
