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

We have been to a few race tracks and I love this track. The prerace activities easily can keep you busy the entire day. The seating is great. If you are sitting in the "upper" seats, you can take an elevator or escalator (great if you have a bum knee). Con: don't sit on the upper level. The only pro... More

Upgraded seating was very good, worth extra money. Food options there are somewhat limited. This year's Sept. race was the most boring ever, but not the track's fault

The grounds themselves were great - the atmosphere, food, people, everything was great. Our seats in the grandstands were amazing - the race - stunk up the house. Boring, boring, boring.....fix the track and all will be perfect!

Great track to see a race. everywhere you went you saw staff cleaning or doing something. The cleanest bathrooms and porta potties I've ever seen at a race track.

I'm a huge fan of motorsports but only recently have I been able to actually attend races. I went to the Federated Auto Parts 400 for my first NASCAR event with my fiance and my friend, both of whom were first time race goers like myself. We all were amazed at how awesome it was. I expected it to he... More
