Richmond International Raceway

Richmond International Raceway (RIR) is located just outside Richmond, Virginia, USA in Henrico County. RIR is one of a few race tracks to host all of its events under the lights.

Richmond International Raceway is either America’s longest short track, or shortest superspeedway. Either way you look at it, Richmond embodies the characteristics of both and it is a rocket-fast challenge to every driver who competes on the three-quarter-mile.

Richmond International Raceway started out as a half-mile dirt track on the Richmond fairgrounds, first hosting race cars in 1953 under the name Strawberry Hill Speedway. Fifty years and four track configurations later there are 112,000 grandstand seats.
