Carved into the south-central Virginia mountains in 1946, Martinsville Speedway is the oldest on the NASCAR circuit. Shaped like a paper clip, some describe it as two drag strips with short turns. Check the gallery right here, then make a Pilgrimage to the mecca that is Martinsville.
Things were a bit more rustic in the early years of Martinsville Speedway. The track was dirt, cars purely stock and walls rough boards.
