Motor Mile Speedway (formerly Pulaski County Speedway, then New River Valley Speedway) is a 0.416-mile paved oval racetrack in Dublin, Virginia. It was purchased by Shelor Automotive Group in 2004 and was subsequently renamed Motor Mile Speedway.[1] The track announced that it has cut all sanctions with NASCAR and discontinued its oval track racing in late 2017 but, reopened under NASCAR sanctioning in 2019. However, it continues to use its drag strip behind the back straightaway. In 2017, many NASCAR teams such as StarCom Racing tested for their races at other tracks.
