Martinsville NASCAR Track to Upgrade With LEDs
RIDGEWAY, Va., Oct. 25, 2016 — The Martinsville Speedway, one of the shortest and oldest NASCAR tracks in the U.S., is set to upgrade itself with all LED lighting.
Up to $5 million has been earmarked by the International Speedway Corp. (ISC) to equip the track. The new fixtures will provide better illumination, greater flexibility and more efficiency than traditional metal halide lights. In addition to enhancing the fan experience at Martinsville Speedway, LED lighting will also enhance the quality of the broadcast for fans watching at home. The lighting solution will consist of multiple structures located around the perimeter of the facility and the infield of the track.
"Bringing lights to Martinsville Speedway is something that has been a priority for us,” said John Saunders, president of the ISC. “But just like Martinsville, we wanted the lights for this project to be unique. They had to be of the highest quality for both the competitors and the fans.”
