Took in the NASCAR event this past weekend for the first time - great 3/4 mile track with good views (we were in Section I, Row 18 and could see around the entire track). The pre-race events were plentiful and provided lots of entertainment before the show.

I have never been to a nascar race this facility is very nice. Our seats in the commonwealth tower were great. Restrooms and food vendors very nice. Glad I took earplugs cause it is very loud.

We were here this past weekend for the race. This track is one of the cleanest and nicest ones we have seen. The employees are all very nice and helpful. We had excellent seats in Row 32 at the start/finish line. Only complaint...and it is not RIR's fault...was that it was windy and being up that high and under the... More

The night races are amazing, and the ability of Richmond International Raceway to move people in and out of the track with ease amazes me. Yes, there will be traffic, but it is well coordinated. The races are amazing and the stands prove thee is no bad view.

RIR always hosts great races no matter which one you go to. We enjoy the tower seats way up high in the sky where the views go for miles! The addition of escalators is awesome and keeps the crowd moving. Bathrooms on each level and are kept clean. Lots of food to choose from, healthy, fried, barbecue, etc. etc. Lots... More

RIR was my first NASCAR race back in the 90's. It was as exciting then as it is now. My friends and I plan a trip yearly to Richmond. It used to be the spring race, but now we just gotta see the final race to get in the Chase. Speedways are fast, but short track is racing. This is... More

From the various expos to the NASCAR racing to the Universoul Circus, I've thoroughly enjoyed RIR as a venue. There is no charge for parking and it is large enough to accomodate a lot of people for multiple events during the same time. We plan on attending the Sprint Cup in April, and Im confident we will enjoy.
