The road to the championship runs through Richmond
Richmond hosts the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR XFINITY Series playoff races
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” April 20-21, 2018. The Toyota Care 250 NASCAR XFINITY Series race is Friday, April 20 and the TOYOTA OWNERS 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race is Saturday, April 21.
On September 21-22, 2018 Richmond Raceway will host its first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR XFINITY Series Playoff race weekend. The NASCAR XFINITY Series Playoffs begin on Friday, September 21 and the Federated Auto Parts 400 joins the Monster Energy Series Playoffs on Saturday, September 22.
