"We have a GPS map feature, that allows you to find the closest Martinsville Speedway hot dogs, so you don't have to go wander around," Carolyn Warn, Martinsville Speedway Marketing.

If you want to capture your experience at the race, you can also use the 'Postcard' section. You can take a picture with different speedway backgrounds. There's also updated schedules with times for each race. You can also buy tickets.

"We just felt it was the right time to go ahead and make the technological jump," Warn says. "It's a great way for all of our fans to be involved with all the great activities going on here at Martinsville Speedway this race weekend."
