Martinsville Speedway is the final enhanced weekend on this year’s NASCAR schedule and the speedway is going big with its Fan Fest.

Scheduled for Saturday night, Oct. 28, after final Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series practice for the First Data 500, nine drivers are scheduled to entertain the fans. The gates will open at 5:30 p.m. ET with Fan Fest going until 8:30 p.m. ET.

For those looking to attend this weekend, the event is being held in Party Plaza.

Here’s the lineup:

6-6:30 p.m.: Denny Hamlin and Danica Patrick will participate in “Two Truths and a Lie.”

6:30-7 p.m.: Jeffrey Earnhardt and Aric Almirola will be involved with the sumo wrestling activity.

7-7:30 p.m.: Matt DiBenedetto and Kasey Kahne will pair with fans to play “Family Feud.”

7:30-8 p.m.: Austin Dillon and Motor Racing Network’s Kim Coon will pick two kids each and have a 3-on-3 “Hot Shot Basketball” competition.

8-8:30 p.m.: David Ragan and Reed Sorenson will have a pumpkin carving contest

Earlier this year, similar Fan Fests were held at Indianapolis, Watkins Glen and Pocono. The goal being to give drivers and fans an opportunity to enjoy time at the race track on a weekend where the Monster Energy Series is on track for Saturday and Sunday activities, instead of a traditional three-day weekend that starts on Friday.

There will be plenty of excitement at Martinsville Speedway this weekend.

The half-mile paperclip will host the opening race in the Round of 8 for the NASCAR Playoffs and could very well see its finish happen under the new LED lights.
