The Richmond Raceway Fan Advisory Board is a group of loyal fans who provide feedback and new ideas to aid in the growth and development of the track, and its ability to exceed expectations by delivering the ultimate fan experience.
With monthly conference calls and annual meetings, the Fan Advisory Board targets visible issues, identifies challenges and presents ideas to enhance and better the "Richmond Experience."
It is important to convey that the Fan Advisory Board does not replace direct communication/correspondence between fans and Richmond Raceway leadership, but offers a consistent open line of communication from a cross section of fans with the best interest of the fan experience in mind.
WHO IS IT?
In order to ensure a constructive working advisory board, membership is limited. The board is comprised of no more than 24 members, consisting of a demographic cross-section of fans.
Correspondence and meetings include Richmond senior leadership to ensure action items are fulfilled and executed in the vision of the board.
Board members serve a "rotational" term that includes four (4) consecutive NASCAR race weekends at Richmond Raceway.
WHY DOES RICHMOND RACEWAY HAVE A FAN ADVISORY BOARD?
Richmond Raceway cares what our fans think, and we act on recommendations that help make the “Richmond Experience” the best it can be. The Fan Advisory Board increases the level of communication and provides us with an immediate sounding board in which to solicit fan opinions, and consider fan ideas and suggestions for the future.
Please note the board in no way is intended to replace the direct communication between fans and Richmond Raceway leadership. It only supplements and enhances the fan-track relationship.
WHAT KIND OF TIME COMMITMENT IS NECESSARY?
Meetings take place during NASCAR event weekends at Richmond Raceway for board members in attendance. The online message board and Facebook group serve as an ongoing open line of communication and involvement/activity is unlimited. Throughout the year, monthly teleconferences also take place, in which board members actively participate in meetings via phone.
Members serve a term that includes three NASCAR race weekends at Richmond Raceway. After the three-race term is complete, members rotate off the board and are replaced by new members.
