Martinsville Speedway and Long John Silver’s have extended their partnership for the 2024 spring NASCAR race weekend, with the popular fast-food chain returning to the historic short track.

The Long John Silver’s 200 will be the first race of the triple-header weekend at Martinsville Speedway, with drivers in the CRAFTSMAN Truck Series taking to the track on Friday, April 5.

“Having a first-time partner return to Martinsville Speedway, especially one as notable as Long John Silver’s, is a testament to how amazing our fans are and how special this place can be,” said Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell. “We’re proud to have the Long John Silver’s 200 back at Martinsville for our spring race weekend and we look forward to showing them a good time, with some incredible racing once again.”

Long John Silver’s has a longstanding history, celebrating over 50 years of service. The seafood chain first started in Lexington, Kentucky, in 1969 and now spans across the entire country from sea to sea, including a location right down the road in Martinsville, Va.

“We are proud to once again partner with the Martinsville Speedway, the community, and NASCAR fans everywhere for the Long John Silver’s 200” said Nate Fowler, President of Long John Silver’s.  “Martinsville is an exciting venue with deep roots and loyal fans.  This race is a tribute to all our customers, employees, and brand partners.  We are looking forward to another great race weekend.”
