Richmond International Raceway is fondly referred to as "America's premier short track," thanks to its ¾-mile D-oval. But don't let its size fool you! This race track's asphalt is home to the renowned NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. And up until 2009, it also hosted adrenaline-filled events among pros from the IndyCar circuit.
Among the track's most impressive features is its state-of-the-art video scoring tower, which comes with more LED square footage than any other stadium in the race car driving world! With NASCAR driving competitions held only at night (like many of its speedway counterparts), it's no wonder spectators and competitors are awestruck by the brilliant LED screens and race track lights as stock cars zip around the track's four turns, vying for victory!
Another smaller-but-mighty force in the world of race car driving is the Dover International Speedway. Lucky competitors of this location's oval can expect to tackle four turns (each with 24-degree banking) over the course of the one-mile loop concrete oval. Previously known as "White Lightning," DIS is now appropriately nicknamed the "Monster Mile."
The track has been a host to a variety of IndyCar and NASCAR racing. Among the biggest supporters of these heart-pounding events (quite literally) is the location's mascot, Miles the Monster — a 46-foot statue, whose unmistakable profile is also proudly displayed on race car driving trophies, tickets, souvenirs, and more.
