Waiting to Race

Martinsville, Virginia is home to the only NASCAR race track still operating from NASCAR’s first season in 1948. I live just two miles from the facility and as such am able to make photos when I want. NASCAR schedules two races annually here on the one-half mile oval (paperclip design) track and racing fans enjoy the up-close views and tight racing often creating a lot of “bumping and banging.” For years I attended each race along with 60,000-plus others. The pandemic curtailed that last year but it’s now back open to fans fully. Here are several images I made this week to show the facility is indeed “waiting to race.”

  1. Good news for the fans!
    Our drag strip here in the UK should open fully by the end of June but a rise in cases may curtail this. Fingers crossed I get to see some action this year.

  2. Some neat looking images. It reminds me of the time that my mom dragged us to a big church in France and there was nobody there. It was neat to see but it wasn’t the same. It’s the people that bring this place life.
