Richmond Raceway Fans,
This is an unprecedented time in the history of our nation and Richmond Raceway. The dynamic situation we are all confronting is impacting our daily lives and activities in unimageable ways. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and modifications to the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series race schedule, NASCAR has realigned our spring NASCAR Cup Series race. Richmond’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoor Truck Series race remains postponed and more details will be announced at an appropriate time.
NASCAR and Richmond Raceway have worked closely with public health officials, medical experts and state and federal officials throughout the development of a revised NASCAR schedule to ensure the safety of competitors, staff, and the local community. Richmond’s spring race weekend realignment is part of NASCAR’s efforts to reschedule all points races for all national series events for the current season.
Like you, we are disappointed we’ll not experience a spring race weekend in Richmond this year. As we look broadly at the current pandemic in our country and abroad, we must focus first on everyone’s safety and well-being as we seek the optimal way for the sport to return to competition.
Ticketholders for the Richmond Spring Race Weekend may elect to receive a credit for the full amount plus an additional 20% of the total amount paid to apply towards future race events, including, but not limited to, grandstand seating, infield, camping, fan hospitality, and FanGrounds passes. The 120% event credit can be used in a single transaction during the remainder of the 2020 season and entire 2021 season for a NASCAR sanctioned event at any NASCAR-owned tracks, subject to availability. Ticketholders may opt for a refund, if preferred. For additional details or other options, fans can visit richmondraceway.com/assistance.
Today, we begin a new countdown to the return of NASCAR action at Richmond on Sept. 11-12. The Action Track will be the second race of the first round of the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs for the ninth annual Federated Auto Parts 400 on Saturday, Sept. 12. Richmond will also host the Go Bowling 250 NASCAR Xfinity Series Regular Season Championship race on Friday, Sept. 11. This will be the 29th consecutive year the fall race weekend is “under the lights” at Richmond.
Thanks as always for your support of Richmond Raceway. I encourage you to be safe and practice the recommendations from the CDC as we all look forward to brighter and healthier days in the future. We look forward to cheering on our favorite drivers together when the green flag waves again this fall at America’s Premier Short Track.
President, Richmnd Raceway
