What’s the only track that holds ‘under the lights’ only races?┬á That’s right – Richmond International Raceway and here it is from an aerial photo view – also the Bird’s Eye view as well – check out all the burn outs┬á that can be seen in those Bird’s Eye photos – cool huh!
One of the most historic tracks in racing is also one of the most popular among drivers, fans and the media. Year after year, Richmond International Raceway puts on the best short track show, and arguably the best racing anywhere. Why? Richmond’s unique, ┬╛-mile layout produces tremendous side-by-side racing, yet drivers obtain high enough speeds to give it a superspeedway feel. That rare combination still allows for the beating and banging that fans love, with the driversΓÇÖ skill playing a major role in winning. In the words of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series icon Rusty Wallace, those characteristics help make racing at the track and the experience fans have while visiting, simply “perfect.”
