The name of the race will be the NASCAR Hall of Fame 200 for the second consecutive season.
“The NASCAR Hall of Fame celebrates the history of our great sport, so it is fitting to have their name return on one of the most competitive races of the season at Martinsville Speedway,” said Martinsville President Clay Campbell. “We look forward to making history together with the NASCAR Hall of Fame on the penultimate race of the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series in the NASCAR Hall of Fame 200.”
“It is an honor for us to be the entitlement sponsor once again this year for the NASCAR Hall of Fame 200,” said Winston Kelley, Executive Director of the NASCAR Hall of Fame. “With roots dating back to NASCAR’s inception, Martinsville Speedway is a perfect fit as a partner for us. Sponsoring the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series also serves as a fitting reminder that the NASCAR Hall of Fame honors the history and heritage of all aspects of the NASCAR legacy.”
The NASCAR Hall of Fame 200 will start the NASCAR Playoffs Weekend at Martinsville on Friday, Oct. 30 at 8 p.m. ET, which will be the first the series has run at night at The Short Track.
