What’s Happening?

***UPDATE: All seats have now been filled

NASCAR heads to the historic Martinsville Speedway this weekend. All three National Touring Series are in town, and every series has seats that will be filled as the week rolls on. Keep this page bookmarked as we keep track of all of the open seats for Martinsville weekend!

  • Martinsville is the 4th oldest track that any NASCAR series races at (Milwaukee, Indianapolis, and North Wilkesboro). Opened in 1947, the track has hosted a Cup Series race in every season the Series has been in existence.
  • This is the first of two tripleheader weekends at Martinsville this season. The Cup, Truck, and Xfinity Series all return the first week of November for the penultimate race of the season, deciding the Championship 4 for all three series.
  • Fans are excited for Martinsville this weekend, and that’s due in large part to the history of the track. It’s a track that every fan loves, and it is a bucket list track for many fans.

Cup Series (1 Open Seat)

The NASCAR Cup Series features 37 entries this weekend. No cars will go home, and the only open entry is the No. 66 car fielded by MBM Motorsports.

MBM Motorsports No. 66 – David Starr

David Starr will make a one-off start for MBM Motorsports at Martinsville this weekend. This will be the 56-year-old’s first start in the series since 2021 at Phoenix. He made 7 starts that year for MBM Motorsports, with a best finish of 27th in the summer race at Daytona.

MBM Motorsports has one Cup Series start under their belt this season. Timmy Hill finished 36th for the team at COTA in March, and it was the team’s first Cup Series start since 2022. The team is also committed to racing in the All-Star Open at North Wilkesboro and the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte.

Xfinity Series (2 Open Seats)

A total of 39 entries are attempting to qualify at Martinsville this weekend in the Xfinity Series. This means that 1 driver will be sent home after qualifying on Friday. Two entrants have yet to announce a driver.

SS Greenlight Racing No. 07 – Myatt Snider

Myatt Snider announced alongside Joseph Srigley and SS Greenlight that Snider would driver teh #07 car at Martinsville. This will be Snider’s first start of the 2024 Xfinity Series season.

The SS Greenlight No. 07 car has been primarily driven by Patrick Emerling this season, with a best finish of 17th coming at Daytona. Former Formula One driver, Daniil Kvyat, made the other start at COTA, finishing 21st. The team’s second car has seen J.J. Yeley, Daniel Suarez, R.C. Enerson, and Logan Bearden. Bearden is in the No. 14 this weekend, so, maybe Yeley slots into the No. 07.

DGM Racing No. 92 – Dexter Bean

Dexter Bean will make his first Xfinity Series start of the season at Martinsville for DGM Racing. A journeyman driver from Westby, Wisconsin, Bean has 30 career Xfinity Series starts with his most recent coming in 2021 at New Hampshire for DGM. His best finish in the series is 11th at Pocono in 2012.

Two drivers have raced in the DGM Racing No. 92 car this season. Nick Leitz put together the best performance at Phoenix (17th), in his most recent of 3 starts for the team. Josh Bilicki has made the other three starts for the team, with a best finish of 19th at Richmond.

Truck Series (1 Open Seat)

Reaume Brothers Racing No. 22 – Stephen Mallozzi

Steve Mallozzi will make his first Craftsman Truck Series start of the season at Martinsville this weekend. This is the first race of the season that Lawless Alan will not be driving the No. 22 car. Malozzi has 5 career Truck Series starts, with his best finish coming at Mid-Ohio in 2022 (22nd).

Lawless Alan has had an up-and-down season in the Reaume Brothers No. 22 car. He has two DNFs, but, he does have a 12th place finish coming at Atlanta. This weekend, it’s uncertain whether or not he will return to the seat.

This article will be updated as the week progresses.
