Martinsville Speedway: NASCAR Weekened Schedule, Race Start Time, TV Info

After three weeks out west, NASCAR has returned east. Both the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and the Gander Outdoors Truck Series will be in action at the oldest and shortest track on the schedule, Martinsville Speedway.

Famous for clocks, hotdogs and its paperclip turns, Martinsville Speedway will give short track fans what they have missed in the early weeks of the NASCAR season.
