THE FUTURE OF RACING IN THE COMMONWEALTH
As part of the RacingVirginia.com platform, Team Racing Virginia was formed to showcase a group of outstanding young motorsports athletes who are poised to achieve big things in the world of racing. All members of Team Racing Virginia are from Virginia, under 18 years of age, and compete regularly in the Commonwealth, or in a national touring series.
The backbone of any sport is its future and in Virginia, the racing scene has a strong population of young drivers who are developing their skills at local tracks. TRV was formed to promote and support the future development of local drivers and race teams under the Racing Virginia platform.
The inaugural Team Racing Virginia class included Chase Burrow, Macy Causey, Zach Lightfoot, and Timmy Tyrrell. New drivers for the Class of 2018 will be announced in January, with all members of the group participating in a series of events over the course of the upcoming 2018 Racing Virginia season.
During the 2017 season Team Racing Virginia made it’s race weekend debut during the Who’s Your Driver Fall Race Weekend at Richmond Raceway, appearing with Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Larson as a part of GRIDSIDE LIVE!, the centerpiece event of Fan Appreciation Weekend.
