By HARRISON HAMLET - Bulletin Staff Writer
The Martinsville DuPont Credit Union (MDCU) announced Tuesday that it will sponsor the MDCU 300 late-model stock car race on Oct. 5 and in years to come.
“The opportunity to sponsor the late-model race at the speedway shows the commitment that the credit union has for the community, but also the shear commitment between the credit union and Martinsville Speedway to enhance the quality of life in this region,” said Delbert Lee Morgan, president/CEO of the credit unioin. “The (MDCU) is honored to connect with Martinsville Speedway and it’s rich, deep history serving the community. Welcome to the MDCU 300.”
Morgan noted that MDCU’s business extends beyond Martinsville and Henry County borders, reaching into Roanoke, Franklin, Pittsylvania and Patrick County, as well.
Clay Campbell, president of Martinsville Speedway expressed excitement over the announcement and teaming with another local business.
“We were very excited,” when the deal came together, Campbell said. “I think it’s a great day for Martinsville Speedway and the credit union. It’s a great situation for both of us. We have a lot of commonalities in target markets and hopefully we’ll bring people out here that haven’t been before and get them interested in racing.”
