Richmond Raceway (RR) is a 0.75 miles (1.21 km), D-shaped, asphalt race track located just outside Richmond, Virginia in unincorporated Henrico County. It hosts the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Known as “”America’s premier short track””, it has formerly hosted events such as the International Race of Champions, Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown, and the USAC sprint car series. Due to Richmond Raceway’s unique “”D”” shape which allows drivers to reach high speeds, its racing grooves, and proclivity for contact Richmond is a favorite among NASCAR drivers and fans.

Nicknamed the “”Action Track””, Richmond sold out 33 consecutive NASCAR Cup Series races before the streak ended in September 2008 due to the Great Recession as well as the impact of Tropical Storm Hanna. Richmond has hosted the final “”regular-season”” race, leading up to the start of the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs, each year since the concept was introduced in 2004 until 2018 when it was moved into the playoffs.

In 2010, the track introduced a state-of-the-art video scoring tower that boasts more LED square footage than any other in the motorsports industry. The cap features four HD LED screens that measure 38 feet wide by 24 feet high. The screens broadcast live race action and pre-produced videos and graphics. The stem shows the running order and has the ability to rotate through the entire field. Prior to 2019, the raceway had a track seating of 59,000.”
