TOYOTA OWNERS 400 at RIR

You know how they say you pay for the whole seat, but only need the edge? Well, that’s the case for the TOYOTA OWNERS 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond International Raceway. You will be jumping from your seat as you watch side-by-side short track action “under the lights” between NASCAR’s best. Last year, sparks flew during a 4-way battle for the lead in the closing laps of the race! You’ll want to be there as defending Sprint Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick takes on Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Matt Kenseth, and more to inch one step closer to making the 2015 Chase Grid by scoring a coveted win sticker.

With your TOYOTA OWNERS 400 ticket, you can put your feet on the pavement when you join us for Track Takeover from 2 p.m. – 4:30 pm. There’ll be music, displays, and, of course, driver Q&A’s all out on RIR’s historic track surface.

Parking Lots Open: 7 a.m.
Green Flag: 7 p.m.
