Richmond Raceway will host an Open House for fans on Saturday, Jan. 25 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The free event will take place in the FanGrounds and include NASCAR celebrity appearances and a behind-the-scenes tour of the NASCAR Cup Series garages along with food, music, and games. The Open House will also offer fans the opportunity to purchase NASCAR and INDYCAR race tickets, FanGrounds passes, and more for the 2020 race season at America’s Premier Short Track.

On Jan. 25, Richmond will open to the general public with a full schedule of activities. Rick Mast, former NASCAR driver and Virginia native, and Richmond President Dennis Bickmeier will participate in Q&A’s. Mast will also be available to meet with fans and sign autographs at the Open House. The Open House will also feature photo opportunities with a Wood Brothers No. 21 show car and local late models. Racing Virginia drivers Rick Mosher and Alex Brock will attend, as well.

A DJ will be playing music, food trucks will serve signature dishes, and fans can participate in games and turn a few laps in the Richmond Raceway Simulator. Fans can take a tour of the FanGrounds including Gatorade Victory Lane, Dixie Vodka Victory Lane Club, garages and media center to get a sample of the experience of a NASCAR or INDYCAR race weekend. There will also be photo opportunities for fans throughout the FanGrounds to capture memories with friends and family.

Fans will have the opportunity to take a pace car ride around America’s Premier Short Track. For a $5 donation to Richmond Raceway Cares, fans will get to experience the track similar to NASCAR’s best with laps around Richmond’s iconic ¾-mile D-shaped oval.

Additionally, Racing Virginia tracks and drivers will have displays in the garage stalls to showcase the connection of local short track racing across the Commonwealth of Virginia.
