The best place to sit is at the first turn. Dogwood Section. What is amazing is how fast they go on such a short track. If you have never been to a Nascar race go at least once... read more

After I researched the RIR website, I noticed there were no tours listed, so I sent an email asking if we could visit the track. I received an email back saying to just stop by and we'll take you on a tour! We did just that, and boy or boy are we glad we did. They took the two of... More

It is great for Nascar races. They have food, nonachoholic and achoholic beverages and all of the emblem shirts, jackets, stickers, hats, and more of your favorite things of your favorite driver and team. It is so much fun. They also have exhibits on other days. Much to see when they do have them.

Our first time at this track, with the family group, that included guys from 20-78 years old. There was quite a bit of walking from the camping area where we stayed. They provided golf cart transportation for my Dad, and others who could fit, back and forth several times to the track. Great times, and excellent service and attitudes by... More

We visited Richmond Virginia in October 2016 with family who had travelled from Northern Ireland to the USA to see the sights of Virginia. We drove up from North Carolina to travel with our Irish family throughout Virginia. We called into the Raceway during the week to see of they provided tours. They had us come by and we received...

Having first attended a race in 1997 I can say that the atmosphere at these events is electrified and it's easily the equivalent of going to a 3 day outdoor festival like Woodstock and thankfully without the illicit substances. This trip was my first attending Richmond, but I had been to Pocono, Dover, and Phoenix before each track providing its... More

We arrived early and enjoyed walking around and watching the people. Great seats in sprint sec g row. Kinda wished we were higher but our friend said this was a better view. The night was warm and very active. My driver won the race, Denny Hamlin. Awesome time had by all.
