More NASCAR Drivers Testing at Richmond, August 26-27
On the heels of this week’s “under the lights” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series testing excitement at Richmond International Raceway, even more stars return to America’s Premier Short Track, August 26-27. Prior to the September 7 Federated Auto Parts 400 – “One Last Race to Make The Chase” – at America’s Premier Short Track, drivers will prepare their cars at RIR, and grandstands will be open free to the public from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. each night.
Drivers will get precious track time “under the lights” in preparation for one of the most anticipated races of the season. Only the top 10 drivers in the point standings and two Wild Cards (drivers who are in positions 11-20 with the most wins) will earn a spot in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. The way things are shaping up, there could be more than 10 drivers on the proverbial “bubble.”
Participating Monday, August 26 & Tuesday, August 27:
Parker Kligerman (NASCAR Nationwide Series)
Fans may enter Richmond International Raceway through the Main Gate, located at the corner of Laburnum Avenue and Meadowbridge Rd. Parking will be on the Midway, outside of Gate 70.
