The September 10-11 NASCAR doubleheader weekend features the second operation of the new, state-of-the-art video scoring tower at Richmond International Raceway. A successful debut during the April 30-May 1 NASCAR weekend drew rave reviews from fans:
“Everyone in our group loved the new tower. The screens make you feel like you are not missing anything and you know the whole lineup.”
Ø “Every other track in NASCAR would be foolish not to invest in the tower.”
“The new scoring tower is great. I have a Sprint Fan View, but for those who don’t, I would think it’s a great to know where their driver is racing. Also, this was the first time I knew what was going on in the pre-race festivities.”
Ø “I think I watched the race on the new tower more than on the track. It’s definitely impressive! Two thumbs up...way up! Thanks for the upgrade!”
Ø “Scoring tower was great. Loved the short time it took to scroll thru all 43 cars. I always knew where my driver was!”
“The tower was amazing! So clear and we loved all of what was shown/displayed. Best track upgrade in recent memory.”
“The Richmond Video Scoring Tower is one of the best in NASCAR. The picture quality is excellent, the color changes for cautions are dramatic and the constant rundowns are very helpful and large enough for all to see. Great job.”
“One Last Race to Make The Chase” is most important in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, as only the top 12 drivers in the point standings are eligible for the series championship. Once the checkered flag drops at Richmond International Raceway on Saturday, September 11, the field will be set for the 2010 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Last year’s Chase field wasn’t determined until the final lap, as Brian Vickers edged Kyle Busch by just eight points to earn a spot in The Chase.
America’s Premier Short Track promises on-track excitement for its NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Saturday, September 11—“One Last Race to Make The Chase.” Defending series champion Jimmie Johnson, Virginia’s Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon and the rest of the star-studded NASCAR Sprint Cup Series field will battle it out “under the lights” around the ¾-mile track. All seats for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race are reserved and start at $40.
The weekend begins on Friday, September 10, with a full day of on-track activity, including practice and Fas Mart Pole Qualifying for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, practice and WRIC-TV8 Pole Qualifying for the NASCAR Nationwide Series and the Virginia 529 College Savings 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race “under the lights.” Tickets for Friday’s events are $40 (reserved) and $30 (general admission) in advance. Children 12 and under are admitted free with a ticketed adult on Friday only.
Family Sections presented by Virginia 529, which are alcohol-free and smoke-free, continue for the September race weekend.
