It was very noisy but really exciting. We went there for 300 Toyota owners and we enjoyed open paddock before the race and very interesting and dramatic race, with burning wheels and cars. There were a lot of services working very good - clean toilets without queues, a lot of food points with snacks, beer and some sausages and sandwiches.... More

The action track is sure to deliver. There is not a bad seat in the house, thanks to good planning and this being a smaller track. Sit in turns 1 or 2 and see the start/finish line, and a lot of the beatin and bangin. Sit on the main stretch and watch the pit crews go to work. This track... More

I'm just GLAD that our tickets were won and not paid for.RIR & Nascar makes ALOT of money catering to fans who don't know WHEN to STOP Drinking, and portable toilets that were overflowing all over the place! The parking situation was Murder..We caught a Shuttle from a nearby Shopping Center for a low fee, but when it came time... More

We visited RIR for an Indian Pow Wow. Although my GPS took us to the wrong Luburnum (since there's an N, S, E, W) we made it there and were impressed with the ease of parking, and the indoor exhibition area. I imagine this area gets quite congested during big events and races, but when we were there it was... More

Facilities are clean, improvements made since the last trip to the facility. Everybody we met was helpful. Good short track racing. Have done the NASCAR Racing Experience and it is a fun track to drive.

Okay, so the races aren't selling out these days but I do have to say that RIR is doing more and more to try to win back race fans. Dennis Bickmeyer is doing a great job of trying new things to create excitement about coming to the races. In the spring, there was a pre race track takeover. The September... More

I've attended a number of racing events at RIR, they have a ton of things to do. They really focus on the fan experience

We had amazing seats across from pit road. We enjoyed the activities outside the track, and were pleased with the number of concessions and restrooms inside. This was our first visit to Richmond, and we really liked this track compared to some of the others we've visited. There was a place where all of the taxis picked people up, and... More

Yep, I'm a New Yorker who loves Nascar ! Every year I go to 1 or 2 tracks that I've never been to. Richmond was AWESOME ! I had a great seat and saw a great race. It's always a pleasure to spend a weekend down south - the people are friendly and the pace is just right. Nice choice... More
