Track Laps for Charity benefitting Richmond Raceway Cares and the Special Olympics Virginia postponed to Wednesday, April 10

RICHMOND, Va. (March 27, 2024) – Richmond Raceway has postponed today’s Track Laps for Charity due to potential inclement weather. The event benefitting Richmond Raceway Cares and the Special Olympics Virginia has been rescheduled to 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10.

All other events remain on schedule for Toyota Owners 400 weekend at Richmond Raceway, which features exciting NASCAR racing Friday, Saturday and Sunday, culminating with Sunday night’s NASCAR Cup Series’ Toyota Owners 400 at 7 p.m.

“We’re always honored to help support great causes by giving fans the chance to drive around our ¾-mile D-shaped oval,” said Richmond Raceway President Lori Collier Waran.
