“Richmond International Raceway is glad to once again accept donations for NASCAR Day,” said track president Doug Fritz. “We are extremely happy to know that fifty percent of the donations at Richmond International Raceway will benefit Henrico County PAL while the other half will go to The NASCAR Foundation. I know I’ll be wearing my NASCAR Day pin on May 21, and I hope our fans will do the same.”
“We are very appreciative of Richmond International Raceway for being such a great corporate citizen to us,” said Sgt. Kenneth Ragland, Henrico PAL Director. “Doug Fritz and his team always go above and beyond to be great community partners and help improve our children’s quality of life.”
