A large complex in the heart of Richmond, the facility hosts a number of events other than car racing. We were there for the Central Virginia Scottish Festival. This is a great venue for this event. Getting to the Raceway requires a little navigation as it is not close to one of the major interstate highways. Most of the gates... More

There's a lot to see and do at RIR during a NASCAR race. The midway is full of vendors and even experiences. They've recently added a big ferris wheel that actually runs during the race. I'm sure that's a pretty cool way to see NASCAR's best drivers race under the lights. The food concessions in the midway are fantastic. The... More

Wow! What a great track. We sat in corner 2 and had a great view of the entire track. The staff was great and answering any questions we had. Parking was of course free and the track staff and local police do a great job of getting everyone out after. No crazy delay like at some tracks.

RIR is a great short track! Fans have a view of the entire track from just about any seat in the house. The traffic isn't too bad getting in and out which makes for a fun and easy race day!

My family and I attended the Friday night Xfinity race. Having never been to a NASCAR event, we weren't really sure what to expect. We left greatly impressed. Parking and admission were simple. The kids had a great time exploring the displays and buying the merchandise of their favorite drivers. While food and drink are expensive, there is no shortage... More

We have been to many Nascar tracks and had been to Richmond years ago. They have made a lot if improvements and they are very fan friendly. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Very pleasant staff, many choices of food and vendors. Richmond will be on our to do list from now on.

Had seats at turn 1 for NASCAR on the weekend. The view form there was great. The facilities were very accessible, not having to walk too far to find toilets or food and souvenirs.

Have been going to this track since 1973, before it was upgraded. Close to home, tailgating is great. We always walk around the exhibits and then across the street at the market. Although the souvenir trucks will be done away with (which remains to be seen how popular that will be), there is still plenty to look at and purchase.

Nothing to brag about RIR... Just a simple half-mile track with seats to watch... However the lady who gave us a tour seemed to be very knowledgeable, which made the tour pretty cool. For a race, I'll be back.
