Jamaica, VA – After much discussion and thought, speedway management has decided to cancel racing activities for Saturday, April 29, due to saturated grounds.

“We have had so much rain that the grass parking areas have standing water, and it looks like a lake out there,” said track owner Bill Sawyer. “We hate to cancel an event, but there is no way to get the facility dry enough for an event, and with the chance of more thunderstorms tonight we had no other choice but to cancel so that we could notify our competitors and fans.”

The Speedway will return to host the FASTRAK Touring Series Saturday, May 6th for a $5000 to-win event. Some of the best Pro Late Model drivers on the East Coast will be on hand for this event. The night will also feature the Truckin Thunder Sportsman, Budweiser Modified, and Collision One Limited Stock Car divisions in weekly racing action.

Spectator gates will open at 5 pm, and on-track action beginning at 5:30 pm with hot laps.

Adult admission is $20, senior/military $15, students (13-17) $10, and children 12 and under free. Pit passes, regardless of age are $35.

Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway is a ½ mile dirt oval track located on U.S. Route 17, eight miles north of Saluda, VA, and 25 miles south of Tappahannock, VA in Jamaica, VA. The Speedway is just a short drive from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Southern Maryland, and the Hampton Roads area.
