Every September, Martinsville Speedway welcomes the best Late Model Stock Car competitors from across the Southeast to take part in the annual running of the ValleyStar Credit Union 300.

The Martinsville Speedway Late Model race, held at the 0.526-mile track each season since 1985, is widely considered the most important and prestigious for Late Model Stock Car competitors. The event annually draws an entry list that more than doubles the 40-car starting field, meaning more than half of those who enter typically fail to qualify for the race.

In addition, the race serves as the finale of the Virginia Triple Crown that also included the Hampton Heat 200 at Langley Speedway and the Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200 at South Boston Speedway. The Triple Crown offers an additional $7,000 bonus to the champion.

The entry list is stacked with regional and national stars, including drivers like Ty Majeski, Corey Heim, Timothy Peters, Peyton Sellers, Layne Riggs, Rajah Caruth, Mason Diaz, Tate Fogleman, Jared Fryar and defending race winner Landon Pembelton.

Official format for the ValleyStar Credit Union 300

The field for Saturday’s ValleyStar Credit Union 300 will be set by a combination of qualifying and four 25-lap qualifying races. Competitors will first qualify on Friday evening, with the fastest qualifier earning a $5,000 bonus. However, no competitors will lock into the 200-lap feature from qualifying like in years past.

Instead, the entire 40-car field will be set based on the four 25-lap qualifying races held Saturday prior to the 200-lap main event. The top-10 finishers in each of the four qualifying races will secure starting positions in the ValleyStar Credit Union 300. There will be no last chance race.

The 200-lap feature race will include three segments: 100 laps, 75 laps and 25 laps. The winners of the first two segments will each earn $1,000.

In the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 feature, the leader of each lap will receive $25, with $5,000 available in the laps led bonus pool. If the race concludes in overtime, there will be unlimited attempts at a green-white-checkered finish. The race winner will earn $32,000 in addition to taking home the coveted Martinsville grandfather clock.

Martinsville Speedway Late Model race entry list

The current entry list for the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 features 93 cars.

Headlining the list of entries is defending winner Landon Pembelton, who will look to become the first driver to earn back-to-back victories in the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 and take home another grandfather clock.

In order to do that, he’ll have to defeat a field that includes Ty Majeski, who just punched his ticket to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship race at Phoenix Raceway with a victory at Bristol Motor Speedway last Thursday. Also entered is Corey Heim, a two-time Camping World Truck Series winner this year and the winner of the Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200 earlier this year at South Boston Speedway.

NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Earnhardt Jr. has entered a car for rising star Carson Kvapil, the son of 2003 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Travis Kvapil. Peyton Sellers and Layne Riggs, the two drivers who spent most of the year battling for the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Division I National championship, are also entered.

Timothy Peters, a two-time ValleyStar Credit Union 300 winner, returns in search of his third victory in the event. Other previous winners that have entered include Mike Looney, Jake Crum and Jason York.

Other notable entries come from Brenden Queen, Tate Fogleman, Jared Fryar, Kaden Honeycutt, Bobby McCarty, Connor Mosack, Clay Jones, Mason Diaz, Conner Jones, Mark Wertz, Rajah Caruth, Katie Hettinger, Connor Hall and Mini Tyrrell.

ValleyStar Credit Union 300 winners

Late Model Stock Cars have been a regular fixture at Martinsville Speedway through the years, but the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 didn’t come into existence until the 1985 season, when Barry Beggarly became the inaugural winner of the event.

It has been held annually since, with the lone exception being the 2020 season when the event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Several drivers have earned multiple wins in the event, including Beggarly, who picked up a second victory in the race in 1994. Philip Morris is the all-time leader in ValleyStar Credit Union 300 victories with three. Others who have won the race twice include Timothy Peters, Curtis Markham, Phil Warren, Tony McGuire, Tommy Lemons Jr. and Lee Pulliam.

A number of drivers who would go on to enjoy success in one of NASCAR’s national divisions have also won the ValleyStar Credit Union 300. NASCAR Hall of Famer Mark Martin won the race in 1987. Mike Sinner, the inaugural NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion in 1995, visited Victory Lane in the Martinsville race in 1993. Current NASCAR Xfinity Series star Josh Berry won the race in 2019.
