Governor Ralph Northam announced Thursday that Martinsville Speedway received $25,000 from the Virginia Tourism Corporation (VTC) Marketing Leverage Grant Fund program to help increase visitation and revenue for Virginia’s localities through tourism. The speedway received the grant for its 2019 Spring Race Weekend. Martinsville Speedway partnered with Martinsville-Henry County Economic Development’s Tourism Division and the Martinsville-Henry County Chamber of Commerce to supply $30,000 in matching funds for the project. The speedway hope to support the Martinsville-Henry County area on race weekend while driving tourism in the area throughout the year.
