Martinsville Speedway is located in the town of Ridgeway in south-central Virginia near the North Carolina border. Snow began falling there Saturday at the start of the Camping World Truck Series race, which was also postponed.
Snow last affected a NASCAR Cup Series race in this way in Atlanta in 1993.
It is the sixth week of the NASCAR season. After a week off on Easter Sunday, the Cup Series will head to Texas Motor Speedway for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500. Dates at Richmond Raceway in Virginia and Dover International Speedway in Delaware come soon after that, in April and early May.
