Richmond Raceway has partnered with Steakhouse Elite on a multi-year partnership to feature its premium Kobe-crafted and Angus beef products at Americrown concessions at America’s Premier Short Track. Steakhouse Elite will also hold the naming rights for Richmond’s exclusive trackside hospitality, Front Porch. The name is now officially Front Porch presented by Steakhouse Elite.
“Front Porch Hospitality has been a popular feature among our fans, and partnering with Steakhouse Elite will further enhance the experience in this area,” said Richmond President Dennis Bickmeier. “At Richmond, we are always looking to bring more value to our fans, and by serving premium Kobe-crafted and Angus beef products from Steakhouse Elite throughout our facility, we are amplifying the race day cuisine.”
