This is a nice place for Nascar short track racing. There is ample parking in off site lots with free shuttle buses every few minutes.

RIR is a great short track, the action is always exciting. Both races are night races which makes for more excitement. The fall race is the cutoff to make the chase in NASCAR so that race is very exciting because 12 drivers are trying to make the chase. The staff at Richmond is great. There is a lot to do... More

I didnt grow up being a fan but I now really enjoy Nascar. I've been to a few other tracks around the country. Richmond is one of my favorites. If visiting from out of town be very careful when venturing off of the RIR grounds its very dangerous. I would get a taxi or have a friend drive.

They had their stuff together this year for the race. Security was in place. Plenty of vendors to choose from. Enjoyed it.

A great night race! Very easy to find seats--we were in Sprint section. Had a great view of track & pit area. The pre-race ceremonies were very emotional tributes to our armed forces. One problem going in--we had a soft side cooler with a hard plastic insert--the security woman we had would not let us take it in---we had to... More

This was our 1st time at Richmond for the Auto Parts 400. Traffic was horrific; parking was horrific and expensive (in my opinion). We got lucky and parked at a convenience store close to the track. Parking may be plentiful, but you must get there early. Our seats were in the 1st row and there wasn't a good view unless... More

My wife and I went to the Federated Auto Parts 400 at the Richmond International Speedway. There is really not a bad seat in the place. My recommendation is renting a device called "Fanview". It's about $ 40 at the track, but well worth it. This handheld unit provides first and foremost the necessary hearing protection you need at the... More

This is a great venue for a race. There are good options for food and drink and everything is compact. The parking is plentiful. The only drawback is that because the race track is in the city, traffic into and out of the speedway parking in heavy. Allow plenty of time and be patient.

We try to take in a Nascar race each year while incorporating our annual vacation and include with area site seeing. This was, by far, the best racing venue we've attended to date! It was crazy! with acres and acres of RVs and camping for pre-race activities. The local police did a good job with traffic controls making getting in... More
