Want a NASCAR Driver’s Autograph?
We’ll tell you how you can get autographs from NASCAR Nationwide Series drivers Chase Elliott, Regan Smith, Dylan Kwasniewski, and others!
Chase Elliott, Regan Smith, & Dylan Kwasniewski to sign autographs September 5.
It’s the question we get asked the most: “How can I meet a driver?” Well, today’s your lucky day! Richmond International Raceway is offering up a chance to meet Chase Elliott, Regan Smith, Dylan Kwasniewski, and other NASCAR Nationwide Series drivers*. On Friday, September 5, fans who have tickets for the Virginia529 College Savings 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at RIR are invited to attend an autograph session with some of the sports up-and-coming stars.
Elliott, driver of the No. 9 NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevrolet, is a rookie on the rise. He already has three wins this season and is currently leading the points standings. Everyone’s favorite rising star has the whole family thing going for him, too. His father is “Awesome Bill from Dawsonville’s”, the guy who won the coveted Most Popular Driver Award (voted on by NASCAR fans) a record 16 times. Based on the lines at Elliott's merchandise hauler every weekend, the young star is quickly building an allegiance of devoted NASCAR fans in the same light as his father.
And if you’re one of those new to the scene fans, you’ll want to be sure to meet Regan Smith, the JR motorsports driver who won the season opener at Daytona (in case you didn’t know, that’s the team owned by Dale Earnhardt, Jr.). Smith is currently second in the points standings and knocking on the door of his teammate, Elliott. Don’t forget Dylan Kwasniewski, another up-and-coming drive in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and a former NASCAR Next driver, who is known for his Rockstar sponsorship and appeal to the younger fans. And we’re sure other NNS drivers will be added to the list as the September race weekend approaches. Don’t miss your chance to get these stars’ autographs now so you can say you “knew them when”.
NEW DRIVERS ADDED: Ty Dillon, Brendan Gaughan, Brian Scott, James Buescher, Hermie Sadler, Ryan Ellis, Jamie Dick, Dakoda Armstrong, Jeff Green, Will Kimmel, Joey Gase, and Chad Boat
