Richmond International Raceway, known as America’s Premier Short Track, offers great night racing action and a commitment to the fan experience. One of the most popular facilities among drivers and fans in all of motorsports, Richmond International Raceway annually hosts all of its major events, two NASCAR Doubleheader weekends featuring the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series, under the lights on a ¾-mile D-Shaped oval. The unique layout traditionally produces exciting side-by-side racing, yet drivers reach high enough speeds for a superspeedway feel. Combined with first-class amenities and a focus on the fans, guests at Richmond International Raceway can expect to experience what “Racing Perfection” truly is. The 2016 schedule features races April 22-24 for the ToyotaCare 250 and the Toyota Owners 400 as well as the September 9th Xfinity Series Race and September 10th Federated Auto Parts 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race, showcasing Racing Perfection “under the lights.” The track becomes the 8th largest “city” in the Commonwealth of Virginia on NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race days, with approximately 100,000 on the track’s property. We’re also on Twitter @RIRInsider and Facebook (facebook.com/richmondinternationalraceway). Richmond…It’s Racing Perfection!
Virginia is for Lovers
Located midway between New York and Florida, Virginia is the gateway to the South. It is also sometimes classified in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Commonwealth is bordered by Washington, D.C., the nation's capital, and Maryland to the north; the Atlantic Ocean to the east; North Carolina and Tennessee to the south; and West Virginia and Kentucky to the west.
Western Virginia is mountainous, covered by the Allegheny and Blue Ridge mountains with the great Shenandoah Valley falling between the ranges. The central piedmont region, with its rolling hills, flattens out into the sandy coastal plain toward the Atlantic Ocean.
