RACING ROOTS RUN DEEP IN THE COMMONWEALTH
RacingVirginia.com is an unprecedented collaboration among Virginia’s motorsports venues providing exclusive news and information about racing action in the Commonwealth. Racing Virginia's presenting sponsor is Who's Your Driver.
Racing in Virginia comes in many forms, from running on dirt tracks, to paved ovals, on drag strips and even on road courses. There are currently over 25 motorsports facilities in operation throughout the Commonwealth with more than half a million fans expected to attend racing events from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean.
NASCAR hosts a pair of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race weekends at Martinsville Speedway and Richmond Raceway each year. With weekly races at local tracks around The Commonwealth, there are over 400 racing events on the calendar for 2017.
The presenting sponsor of Racing Virginia is “Who’s Your Driver?”, which is a public information and education campaign targeting 21 to 35-year-old male drivers in Virginia. The project is a partnership between DRIVE SMART Virginia, Department of Motor Vehicles’ Highway Safety Office, and Richmond International Raceway to encourage people to choose a sober driver and buckle up. For more information and to take the pledge, please visit whosyourdriver.org.
