Media Credentials

Thank you for your interest in covering our race weekends! Below is an outline of the process to obtain media credentials. Please follow these guidelines and if you have any questions, please contact Courtney Brockwell, Communications Coordinator via email.

  • Media credentials will be distributed to newspapers, national television and radio networks, local television stations, news services, racing publications, other publications and internet sites that regularly cover motorsports, and photographers.

  • Team and sponsor public relations representatives are eligible to receive a parking pass and stickers as needed.

  • Requests must be made by the editor, sports director, or sports producer. Credentials are only issued to personnel for the sole purpose of providing coverage of the event.

  • Freelance journalists and photographers must regularly cover motorsports and be on assignment.

  • All credential requests will be carefully screened and level of access will be determined by Richmond PR staff.

  • Outlets are welcome to apply for credentials, but please note not all requests will be approved.

  • If this will be your first time covering events at Richmond, please mail your request on company letterhead to Courtney Brockwell, Communications Coordinator, 600 East Laburnum Avenue, Richmond, VA 23222.  The request should state your name, title, outlet, reason for requesting credentials, any previous coverage of motorsports, and signed by your editor.

  • If you are a hard card holder or have covered events at Richmond in the past, please simply email Courtney Brockwell at cbrockwell@rir.com.

  • All team and sponsor public relations representatives can email their requests to cbrockwell@rir.com.

  • All credential requests are due three weeks prior to each race weekend. The deadline for the 2017 September weekend is August 21, 2017.

  • Upon review and approval of a credential request, appropriate credentials and access will be organized. A confirmation letter with details of assigned credentials will be sent out prior to race weekend.

  • All hard card holders will receive their stickers and parking pass in the mail prior to race weekend, so please provide an address they can be shipped to in your request.

  • With the exception of hard card holders, each person receiving credentials must pick up and sign for his/her credential at the Track Credential trailer located inside the Service Gate off of Richmond-Henrico Turnpike.
