See NASCAR's regular season champion crowned in Richmond
The NASCAR season concludes with the crowning of the regular season champion as part of the Federated Auto Parts 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race
Richmond International Raceway (RIR) 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.
Witness history Saturday night September 9 at the Federated Auto Parts 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race where the regular season champion will be crowned. This race is also the last chance for many drivers to make it to the playoffs. The NASCAR weekend gets started on Friday, September 8 when the rising stars of tomorrow compete in the Virginia529 College Savings 250 NASCAR XFINITY Series race following practice and qualifying for both series.
