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.

I am not a race fan so this venue was of little interest to me, but I was here and went to a crafts fair that was held there. The facility is old and I guess if you want to see cars go left at high rates of speed this might be for you but not me.

We were on the grounds for a Dog Show. Parking was plentiful and there were plenty of ways to get into the building. This was an excellent place for a dog show.

If you've never seen a NASCAR race, this is a "must do" for 1 time. There isn't a bad seat in the house. Cool tailgating and partying before the race. Be sure to take a walk around the lower walkway around the track during the race. Cars are whipping by at 160 mph only 15 feet away from you. Not... More

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
