Richmond International Raceway encourages fans to arrive early, avoid traffic, park in our free parking lots and take advantage of the extra time to tailgate at one of the best tailgating scenes in NASCAR. We also ask you to follow a few simple rules and regulations while tailgating, to ensure the safety of you and those fans around you.
Tailgating for all events will be limited to the area directly in front of or behind each vehicle and must not take up any additional parking spaces. This policy is designed to improve the traffic flow and access to our free parking areas, including for emergency vehicles, while allowing fans to continue the tailgating tradition at RIR.
Campfires or outdoor fire pits are not permitted in RIR parking lots.
We’d like to thank you for being courteous to your fellow race fans and for your cooperation. If you have any questions regarding the tailgating policies, please call the Richmond International Raceway Ticket Office at 866-455-RACE (7223).
