Both Sprint Cup races in Richmond are run under the lights in front of sellout crowds. The Nationwide series runs Friday night before the Cup race both weekends and the fall race also features the NASCAR Camping World Truck series for a perfect NASCAR triple-header.
The great racing and fan-friendly track make this a must-see for any NASCAR fan. Truly Richmond International Raceway is one of the great places in all of NASCAR to watch a race in person.
