The group from VMI has performed the national anthem at Martinsville Speedway in the past, and has received accolades for its traditional rendition of the song.

The VMI Glee Club, founded in 1852, has performed around the world in its 160 years of existence. It is the oldest Cadet organization in VMI’s 165-year history. The cadets in the Glee Club are enrolled in Reserve Officer Training Courses at VMI, located in Lexington, VA, and are available to commission in all branches of the US Armed Forces upon graduation.

The green flag falls on the STP® Gas Booster™ 500 at 1 p.m. Sunday.

High Point University’s Pep Band, which has been performing since 1927, will play the national anthem before the start of the Kroger 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Saturday at Martinsville. The race is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m.

The HPU Pep Band consists of 29 members from 10 different states, pursuing degrees in more than 17 fields of study.

High Point University student and driver of the No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Silverado, Ty Dillon will compete in the Kroger 250 following his school’s national anthem performance. Older brother, Austin Dillon, a regular on the NASCAR Nationwide Series, is a communications major at High Point University.

SPRINT UNLIMITED: Fans at Martinsville Speedway for Sunday’s STP® Gas Booster™ 500 need to stop by The Sprint Unlimited Experience. Three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers will take The Sprint Unlimited Experience stage Sunday morning.

Be there for a Q&A and Meet and Greet with Ryan Newman at 9:10 a.m. Join Bobby Labonte at 9:45 a.m. and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. at 10:15 a.m.

BELL RINGING A MUST: Jeff Gordon has seven wins, 25 top-fives and 32 top-10s in 40 starts at Martinsville Speedway.

Gordon has been running at the checkered flag in all 40 events and aims to add to his 3,515 laps led total during Sunday’s STP® Gas Booster™ 500.

Much like his competitors, he wants to lead that final lap at Martinsville and savor the Hendrick Motorsports tradition of ringing the Victory Bell on Monday. Gordon most recently rang the Victory Bell with his family and team following his 2012 season finale victory at Homestead-Miami Speedway. It has been awhile since his last win at Martinsville – 2005 fall race, sweeping the series at the famed short track.
