Martinsville Speedway Martinsville, Va.

Track type: Short
Length: .526 of a mile

Martinsville is the slowest, smallest NASCAR track, with asphalt straightaways and concrete corners that chew up tires. Because turns are so tight, cornering is difficult. And because drivers slow so much in the turns, it's hard to coax the car to accelerate again. Martinsville can be the most challenging track for a crew chief, because the ideal setup would actually be two different setups: lots of grip for the straightaways to help the car get moving; less grip in the corners to make turning easier. Drivers ideally pit only for fuel, because it's too hard to pass. Cars tend to run in a single lane toward the bottom of the track because the outside groove is all asphalt. You'll see a lot of bumping and banging here because speeds are too slow for aerodynamics to matter much..
