The Goody's Fast Relief 500 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stock car race held at Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, Virginia, the other one being the STP 500 in March, The race has been run in every Sprint Cup season, starting with the inaugural 1949 season, making it the oldest NASCAR race still run today. It is the seventh race of ten in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, and the first race in the Eliminator Round of the current Chase format. Starting 2015, NBC has the rights for the final 20 races of the season (17 of 20), including this race.

The 1:30 pm. Eastern start time is the earliest start time among the Chase races on the current schedule (as the three Chase races after Martinsville start at 3:00 pm EST, five of the first six start at 2:00 pm EDT, and Charlotte starts at 7:30 pm EDT) in an attempt to finish the race before darkness. Lights are scheduled to be installed between the October 2016 and April 2017 races, especially with major issues with heavy shadows during the October Late Model race and the NASCAR premiership races in October or November in recent years, most notably both fall 2015 races that ended in near-darkness, The Tums sponsorship returned sponsorship to GlaxoSmithKline for 2008, as their Goody's Powder brand sponsored the race from 1983-1995 and recently returned as sponsor for the spring race. As per Martinsville tradition, the winner of this race receives a custom-built grandfather clock.[1]
