One tradition at Martinsville is the now-infamous pink hot dogs. These dogs usually came covered in chili, slaw, and onions. In 2015, a new vendor made some changes to the pigmentation of the dogs but the Martinsville track is still revered as a unique place to grab a hotdog by foodies and racing fans. Another unique tradition has to do with the design of the trophy awarded to the winner of each race- a custom grandfather clock. The first clock was given out in 1964 and the tradition continues to this day. It has been said that every driver who competes at Martinsville has a place in their home already selected to hold the clock should they win the race.
