The road to the championship runs through Richmond
Richmond hosts the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series
Richmond Raceway is America’s premier short track annually hosting two NASCAR race weekends, featuring the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR XFINITY Series, on a ¾-mile D-shaped oval. The lights will shine bright once again as the Toyota spring race weekend goes back to Saturday racing at Richmond. With both race weekends “under the lights,” Richmond returns to the tradition it started with its first night race in September 1991 when “Handsome” Harry Gant took home the victory. With brake rotors glowing, sparks flying, and the stars shining bright, it has become the perfect combination for an iconic Richmond race experience.
Richmond Raceway hosts the Toyota spring race weekend “under the lights”. The Toyota Care 250 NASCAR XFINITY Series and the TOYOTA OWNERS 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race come to town each spring. On September 20-21, 2019 Richmond Raceway will host the Go Bowling 250 and the Federated Auto Parts 400 race weekend.
