Richmond Raceway Fans,
Thank you. Those two simple words do not fully express our appreciation for you being a fan of motorsports and Richmond Raceway. It is your support that makes the Action Track come alive, from the arrival of the first hauler, to the crossing of the finish line, to the last camper leaving the Richmond Raceway Complex.
As you have heard, NASCAR has postponed race events through May 3 in accordance with safety protocols recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This includes the postponement of the Toyota Spring Race Weekend at Richmond Raceway, originally scheduled for April 17-19. The decision was made jointly with NASCAR to ensure the health and safety of our fans, competitors, and all those employed across our sport. We are working closely with NASCAR to reschedule the postponed ToyotaCare 250 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series and TOYOTA OWNERS 400 NASCAR Cup Series races.
Like you, we are disappointed that it’ll be a bit longer before the roar of the engines return to Richmond. We all plan and look forward to race weekends, so we can experience the thrill of NASCAR competition together. But as we look broadly at the coronavirus situation in our country and abroad, what is important now is bigger than motorsports, and we must focus on everyone’s safety and well-being.
As we continue to navigate this evolving situation, I encourage you to be safe and practice the recommendations from the CDC. In the meantime, stay connected with us on our website at richmondraceway.com and social media on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for the latest updates. We’ll even be sharing some racing stories and activities to stay in touch during this time on our social channels.
Thanks as always for your support of Richmond Raceway. We look forward to cheering on our favorite drivers together when the green flag waves again soon at America’s Premier Short Track.
President, Richmnd Raceway
