Jamaica, VA – With temperatures nearing 100 degrees and the heat index forecast to be 104 degrees or higher, officials have made the tough decision to cancel racing activities for Saturday, June 22, 2024.

“The safety of our fans and competitors is the most important issue when making this decision,” said track owner Bill Sawyer. “With the heat index expected to be above 104 degrees, it is just too hot for many of our fans and competitors; we do not want to put them in a position to have health complications due to the excessive heat.”

The Speedway will return to racing on Saturday, July 20th, and host week 7 of Dirt Series Championship weekly racing featuring the Victory Lap Pro Late Models, Truckin Thunder Sportsman, Budweiser Modified, Joe Hudson’s Collision Centers Limited Stock Car, and Petie’s Radiator Service JuiceBox divisions in action.

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.
