Richmond to get overhaul
Richmond International Raceway is now Richmond Raceway and is due for $30 million in fan-centric redevelopment over the next 15 months. Track President Dennis Bickmeier and International Speedway Corp. CEO Lesa France Kennedy made the announcements Tuesday. The redeveloped infield will include a covered garage for teams to work on their cars while fans can watch up close in a fenced-off walkway, two suites for fans and an 80-person club with rooftop access near a new victory lane. The project will begin after the September NASCAR race and conclude in time for the September race next fall.
