Twice a year the RIR hosts a major NASCAR race that brings in people from all over the country. Loud noise, traffic, crowds...but hey, that's Nascar.

Flew up to Richmond for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Last Race Before The Chase. Airfare via Southwest from Orlando was quite reasonable. Getting in was pretty quick and simple. Getting out took awhile. (Hint: Don't follow the crowd on the way out. Go opposite and you will find a different mostly unused gate.) RIR is a great track and despite... More

Richmond is the biggest of the short tracks on the Cup circuit (assuming you don't consider Phoenix, New Hampshire and Dover short tracks). This is my daughter's favorite track. I like the track but there aren't many seats where you can see the entire track. We have season tickets in the Commonwealth tower and there is no problem seeing all... More

I was at the recent NASCAR races and was a first time visitor to Richmond. We had a good experience. We paid extra for premium parking - which gave us parking quite close to the stadium main entrance. The corporate vendors and driver merchandise tents were outside the stadium, so one didn't need a ticket to visit them. We had... More

Very nice raceway, We recommend the Three Wide Tickets. We spent some time in the midway and with driver chats when it started to rain. Went into the three wide area for lunch and later dinner both fine. Really impressed with scanner return, very organized. Pits were pretty interesting but tighter than I recall other tracks. Getting around town pretty... More

Might be the cleanest and best organized track I have ever been to. Can't wait to come back. Great traffic flow even with a large crowd.

Had a wonderful experieince at the raceway. The folks there are very friendly. I am in a wheelchair and they were helpful in directly me to the easiest ways to get different places. If you like NASCAR and you can get to the raceway, you won't be disappointed.

I have never attended a NASCAR race, but have visited NASCAR tracks that didn't have a race that weekend. RIR is the first track that I have visited when a NASCAR race was happening. Because of the track size, you can easily view all of the cars on the track if you have a seat that is higher up and... More

This was our first trip to this race track. We were slightly concerned when we had to park so far away with 2 small children, but they had transportation to and from the parking lot. Everyone we talked to was extremely friendly and helpful. We sat on the back stretch and had wonderful seats. We were able to see most... More
