Martinsville 500 TicketsMartinsville Speedway was originally opened in September of 1947 and two years later cemented itself as a yearly part of the NASCAR Cup Series' schedule. Martinsville, originally a dirt track, hosted its first NASCAR Cup Series race on September 25, 1949, the first year of existence for the Cup Series. That first Martinsville race saw NASCAR legend Red Byron pilot his 1949 Oldsmobile to victory lane on the half-mile dirt track. By the second year of NASCAR Cup Series racing in 1950, Martinsville Speedway had established itself as a staple on the schedule and has hosted two races per year every season since. The dirt surface of the track was paved in 1955 and Martinsville hosted its first 500-lap race during the 1956 season. The legendary concrete corners were placed atop the asphalt in 1976 to make Martinsville Speedway one of the most unique tracks on the NASCAR circuit over its seven decades as a part of NASCAR's premier series.
