The Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 200 is a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race that takes place at Martinsville Speedway in the spring.

In 2020, as part of schedule realignment, the fall race became the only Truck Series race at the track as NASCAR decided to give the track one Xfinity Series race instead. This schedule change was done in a swap with Richmond Raceway, which previously had two Xfinity Series races and zero Truck Series races and would now have one Xfinity Series race and one Truck Series race (which replaced the spring race at Martinsville).

In 2022, the fall Truck Series race at Martinsville was moved to the spring and there was no fall Truck Series race at the track for the first time since 2002.

History[edit]

TrüNorth Global was the title sponsor of the race in 2019
The 2019 Truck Series spring race at Martinsville

Joe Ruttman won the inaugural Truck Series spring race at Martinsville in 1999.[3] In the 2004 edition of the race Brad Keselowski made his NASCAR national series debut.

Dennis Setzer's win in the 2008 race was the last Truck Series win for Dodge before they rebranded their Truck Series vehicles to Ram Trucks starting in 2009. It was also the last win for his team, Bobby Hamilton Racing, which closed down at the end of the season.

In the 2013 edition Chase Elliott made his NASCAR national series debut.

Kyle Busch won the last Truck Series spring race at Martinsville before the race was removed from the schedule in 2020. However, the race returned for the 2022 season shortened from 250 to 200 laps.
