Will be there on friday at the BB&T bank with about 20 other friends in motorcoahes.this will be my 4th race at the track.stop by have a tasty beverage unless your a gorden fan then you will have to drink with my wife.Jr. all the way.It's very interesting at the bank with mostly 8 fans then you throw in a gorden fan to have some fun.There isn't a bad seat in the house will be in turn 1 at the very top.

High and straight for me!!

Now if you could get back to the race...... I prefer being on the beginning or the end of a turn!! More action. Went to Indy 500 and both times we sat in the short chute between 1 and 2 up high and the action was intense. Daytona we sat on the straightaway just after turn 4 ...talk about adrenaline!!

great racing for beatin and bangin,in turn 1 at least halfway up are real good seats,or any turn for that matter ,really not bad seats as long as u are 20 rows up,u can see the whole track,the racing is always close,lots of cautions.

That reminds me of the good ole days of racing. Real tracks like Darlington, North Wilkesboro, Rockingham...back when racing was real. Now it's fancy yankee pads and little pansies everyhere.

I would rather watch a race at Myrtle beach speedway than one of these "so called" venues. If you've never been in the infield at one of the original tracks you've never been to a race...sadly it's all coming to an end. Commercialization kills everything for the true fans

Martinsville is not an overly loud track. A s long as you are 10 or so rows up you will be fine. I would recomend sitting coming out of turn 2 as they enter the back "straight" . Make sure you get the famous Martinsville hotdog's ....all the way. If you have time take a stroll through the camp grounds on Sat night. Its a hell of a party. If your interested, click on my link below to see some of my nascar pics.
