Richmond Raceway and Sheetz announce a multi-year partnership to bring the nation’s fastest-growing family-owned and operated convenience retailer to America’s Premier Short Track. Sheetz is now the Official Convenience Store of Richmond Raceway, and will hold the exclusive naming rights to a FanGrounds Neighborhood and the Scout Village as well as become the presenting sponsor for the Scout Experience. The official names will be the Sheetz Neighborhood, the Sheetz Scout Village, and the Scout Experience presented by Sheetz.
“Sheetz has been successfully serving NASCAR fans across the east coast for over 65 years, so we are proud to welcome them as a new partner at America’s Premier Short Track,” said Richmond President Dennis Bickmeier. “With the Sheetz Neighborhood in the FanGrounds and the Sheetz Scout Village, Sheetz will provide our fans with unique, ‘made-to-order’ experiences throughout our race weekends; much like they do every day at one of their 90 stores in the Commonwealth of Virginia.”
The Sheetz Neighborhood in the FanGrounds will be located along the frontstretch closest to Turn 4. In the Sheetz Neighborhood, fans will be able to take in the on-track action while relaxing in the shade. The Sheetz Neighborhood will also welcome guests in the modernized infield with enhanced fan experiences, including the fan-viewing walkway in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garage. The FanGrounds is open on both Friday and Saturday of the NASCAR Playoff Race Weekend presented by Who’s Your Driver on Sept. 20-21.
