In an effort to make way for the new Richmond Raceway brand, the track is cleaning out its storage areas and opening its treasure chest for fans. On Saturday, November 18, Richmond will host its first-ever Yard Sale to purchase pieces of racing history.
The public will be welcomed into the historic Old Dominion Building to purchase memorabilia from more than 30 years of NASCAR racing history. Our staff has assembled over 1,000 items including banners, merchandise, equipment, and branded apparel from the Richmond Fairgrounds Raceway through the Richmond International Raceway eras.
“When fans come to Richmond Raceway, they always leave with unforgettable memories. With the Yard Sale, fans can now take home the physical mementos from their experience,” said Richmond President Dennis Bickmeier. “From banners to apparel, every fan is sure to find something they remember. The Yard Sale will allow our fans to get cherished pieces of their racing history at Richmond in time for the holidays.”
Some of the featured items include parking signs from various lots on property, Fanatics merchandise from previous races, historical canvas prints featuring past Richmond champions, classic Richmond Raceway Complex signs, Infield Care Center signage, and even a Gatorade Victory Lane sign from the past.
