The NASCAR Foundation will recognize the outstanding charitable and volunteer efforts of NASCAR fans by awarding the inaugural Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award, which includes a $100,000 donation from The NASCAR Foundation to the children’s charity of the recipient’s choice.
One of the most anticipated weekends on the NASCAR schedule is coming to Richmond International Raceway September 9-10, and tickets for the two-day event go on sale this Friday at 9:00 a.m. With a new Chase qualifying format and tempers always flaring at America’s Premier Short Track, this is expected to be an intense weekend in Richmond.
“It just doesn’t get any better than Richmond Raceway. It’s the ultimate in short-track racing, and doesn’t get any more exciting than that. This is where my first victory came. Richmond is always going to be special for me.”
