Richmond Raceway

Rebranded and “Reimagined, the racetrack formerly known as Richmond International Raceway is now named Richmond Raceway and will be undergoing a massive renovations project that will feature major changes to the infield.International Speedway Corporation, the body that owns RR, has committed to spending $30 million on changes to the Virginia short track that will include a new garage, a new media center, shaded structures for fans, both a victory lane and technical inspection center that will be viewable to spectators, and an innovative walkway that will allow fans to see the race teams and cars in the garages.

The newly renovated infield, based on the design, would be able to accommodate about 8,800 fans during the course of an afternoon/evening leading up to the race.

Track officials are aiming to complete construction and hold the ribbon-cutting for the renovated racetrack by September 2018 when RR moves into the NASCAR Cup Series’ 10-race playoff - the Chase - for the first time in the track’s history.
