Martinsville Speedway installs LED lights

With seven decades under its belt, and an eye toward the future, historic Martinsville Speedway has officially flipped the switch. The ‘Light Up Martinsville’ project concluded as the facility debuted its new LED lights – the first major motorsport facility to do so.

“Today is truly a historic day in the history of Martinsville Speedway,” says Martinsville Speedway president Clay Campbell. “This is a venue that has a long and storied past, but with these lights now in place, we’re looking forward to a bigger and better future – and certainly a brighter one.”

The industry-leading LED lighting solution, located around the perimeter of the facility and the infield of the track, will provide better illumination as well as greater flexibility and efficiency than traditional metal halide lights. This will lead to a better visual experience for fans in attendance at races, in addition to providing better clarity for television viewers. The installation was managed by Graybar, a leading distributor of high-quality electrical and communications products and services, featuring Eaton’s Ephesus Stadium 750 LED professional sports lights.
