RIR Kicks Off 8th Annual Central Virginia Foodbank & Marine Toys for Tots Drive
President Will Again Match Donations Received at Track
Your food and toy donations go twice as far - RIR will match donations received at the track!
For the eighth consecutive year, Richmond International Raceway will team up with two great organizations to help support those who are less fortunate throughout the Greater Richmond Metropolitan community. Everyone is encouraged to help the Richmond International Raceway staff assist the Central Virginia Foodbank and the Marine Toys for Tots program now through December 14 by donating food items and toys during this upcoming holiday season.
“The Central Virginia Foodbank and Marine Toys for Tots are two very special programs for us here at Richmond International Raceway,” said track president Dennis Bickmeier. “We recognize the need for our community throughout the year, but especially during the holiday season. I encourage everyone to make a difference this holiday season and donate to these worthwhile programs. Additionally, I pledge that Richmond International Raceway will match can-for-can and toy-for-toy the donations we receive here at the track.”
Donations can be made to both organizations at the Richmond International Raceway ticket office located at the corner of Laburnum Avenue and Richmond-Henrico Turnpike (Meadowbridge Road). The ticket office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Food items most needed are canned meats and fish, canned and dried beans, canned vegetables and fruits, hot and cold cereals and pasta and rice.
Tickets for the April 26-27 NASCAR weekend at Richmond International Raceway go on sale Friday, December 7. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series tickets, including seats in Turns 1 & 4, start at $45 in advance. The weekend begins on Friday, April 26, with a full day of on-track activity, including the NASCAR Nationwide Series race “under the lights.” Friday’s tickets start at $30 in advance, with children 12 and younger admitted free with a ticketed adult in general admission.
