Racing Returning To Motor Mile Speedway (VA) In 2019

Racing is scheduled to return to Virginia’s Motor Mile Speedway in 2019.

The 0.416-mile paved oval short track near Radford will soon be unveiling its calendar of events, which will feature a 10-date race schedule in addition to its slate of special events.

Alongside the late model headliners, support divisions competing next season include Limited Sportsman, Super Street, MOD-4 and UCAR. Motor Mile Speedway has contacted NASCAR about renewing its sanctioning agreement for the 2019 season.

“I have been impressed by the persistence of the racers,” Motor Mile Speedway & Dragway owner David Hagan said. “While the concerns that led to the suspension of our racing program in 2018 were justified, assurances of racer and fan support have persuaded me to move forward for 2019."

The decision to revitalize Motor Mile Speedway’s racing program follows a pair of exploratory meetings between track ownership and race teams.

Key members of Motor Mile Speedway’s respected officiating staff will be returning in 2019. Along with competitor-proposed rulebook adjustments, modifications to track operations and procedures will be implemented, all in an effort to ensure the long-term viability of the racing program.
