The fight broke out after qualifying race No. 2 for Sunday’s main event.
The race was scheduled to take place on Saturday but was postponed due to weather conditions as Hurricane Ophelia headed towards North Carolina, a neighboring state of Virginia.
Qualifying for the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 took place Friday evening, with Bobby McCarty setting the fastest lap of the 84 cars on site at 19.704 seconds.
His time is considered a new track record for Late Model Stock Cars at Martinsville Speedway.
Martinsville Speedway, known as the Paperclip, is the shortest track in NASCAR (0.526 miles)
Fans who can’t make it to the “paperclip” on Sunday can watch the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 live on Fox Sports 1.
NASCAR’s shortest track (0.526 miles) is also one of the most entertaining, a tightly coiled paperclip that forces drivers to mind their P’s and Q’s in the turns.
Joey Logano holds the record for the fastest lap during qualifying at Martinsville – 18.898 seconds (set in 2014).
