“What do you know about stock car racing? Well… watched it on television, of course.” That’s a line from the Tom Cruise movie Days of Thunder. And here’s your chance to see live NASCAR close to DC.
But a short track makes for some typical NASCAR-style bumpin’ and rubbin’.
Martinsville is a family-friendly track, with good views from all the grandstand seats.
About 5 hours from DC, and one mile north of the U.S. 220/58 Bypass and U.S. 220 Business.
