Thank You Fans

A special message to our fans from Track President Dennis Bickmeier

Thank You From Dennis


Dear Fans, 

I personally want to thank you all for joining us at Richmond International Raceway in 2015. We appreciate our fans and the passion you bring to each NASCAR race at Richmond. 

In April, we saw Kurt Busch lock in his spot in NASCAR’s playoffs with a dominating win. Then in September, Chase Elliott snapped a 39-race winless streak in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, another sign that the future talent in NASCAR is strong. Jeff Gordon, Clint Bowyer and Paul Menard all raced their way into The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, with Matt Kenseth taking win. In late November, three champions were crowned in Homestead and Kyle Busch capped a historic comeback season with his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship. 

In 2016, NASCAR fans will be able to experience the best of both worlds at RIR. After racing on Sunday for more than 40 years, that tradition returns as we enjoy NASCAR under a different light for the TOYOTA OWNERS 400 on April 24. This will be a perfect time to celebrate with family and friends on a Sunday afternoon, bringing generations together to enjoy a sport we love. 

Did you know Harry Gant won the first scheduled night race at Richmond in 1991? Not only are we going back to our roots in April, we are excited to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of The Night Race with the Federated Auto Parts 400 on Saturday night, September 10. The Last Race to Make The Chase comes with an edge and emotion as drivers take that last swing to make The Chase. It’s a unique spot on the NASCAR calendar to have this last race, and we want to celebrate you, the fans, as NASCAR closes out its regular season. 

We get back to our roots with Sunday racing and then celebrate NASCAR’s regular season finale under the lights on Saturday in September. Ticket renewals have already started for next year and we have changed up the renewal process a bit. Your chance to lock in your seats for the Season, April or September in 2016 is almost over with the deadline this Friday, December 4. But don’t worry, you can renew now and pay later with all of our flexible payment plans. Have questions about the process? Check out our step-by-step renewal guide. You can renew online now or give us a call at 866-455-7223 to talk to one our ticket specialists. 

I can’t wait to see you in the stands for what promises to be an exciting season for RIR in 2016!
