HANDICAP ASSISTANCE CARTS

Richmond Raceway has a fleet of handicap assistance carts to help our disabled guests who require assistance with transportation within the immediate raceway property. While these carts do not pick up at specific camp sites or parking spaces, we will pick up and drop off from Guest Services tent locations as shown on the site map. These sites are located along the transportation route. Please note these carts can assist a disabled guest and one companion.

Pre-Race

Handicap assistance carts transport to and from guest service tent locations which are located on the defined transportation route. Exit the cart closest to your destination along this route. Additionally, the Eternal Fan Pedestrian Tunnel is ADA accessible with an elevator for guests needing assistance to and from the DC Solar FanGrounds.

Post-race

Handicap assistance carts transport from the following designated locations beginning 30 minutes post-race:

  • Gate 60-Backstretch
  • Frontstretch Gate
  • Gate 40-Turn 1
  • Gate 70-Turn 4

The post race drop off points will be to the outer edges of the parking lots. Carts cannot go into the parking lots or campgrounds during post-race, due to vehicle traffic. Please remember there is no tram or cart service to/from Lot G.
