ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Smoking Policy

The grandstand seating areas are smoke-free. Smoking is also prohibited in front of the grandstands, in the portals leading to the seating areas, and inside all buildings. E-cigarettes and vapes will not be permitted in the grandstands. Fans are permitted to smoke in open-air areas beneath and behind the grandstands, on the Midway, and in all parking lots/campgrounds. Guests who do not follow these guidelines could be removed from the race/property.

Note:

Restricted items MAY NOT be left at the gate area. Unattended items left in the gate area will be disposed of by Richmond Raceway.

Richmond Raceway will still allow fans to exit and re-enter the grandstands at anytime. Please make sure to have your hand stamped at the gates when exiting and you must show your ticket stub and hand stamp when re-entering.

The above are subject to change without notice.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Express Lanes

Richmond Raceway has made way for fans to access their seats at America’s Premier Short Track even faster. At major gate entrances to Richmond Raceway, race fans without bags requiring inspection can enter the facility through the Express Lanes.
