Inside Scoop on Richmond International Raceway NASCAR Dates
13 August 1997For those that like to plan ahead - We've come into possession of a memo from Richmond International Raceway to the local hotels.
This note, I would guess, is to calm the local business with the news out of Las Vegas that Winston Cup was headed west on Richmond's traditional March date.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT RICHMOND INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY IN 1998 WILL STAGE MAJOR NASCAR EVENTS ON THE FOLLOWING DATES
Friday Night, June 5th, 1998 - NASCAR Busch Series Grand National Saturday Night, June 6th 1998 - NASCAR Winston Cup
Thursday Night, September 10, 1998 - NASCAR CRAFTSMAN TRUCKS Friday Night, September 11, 1998 - NASCAR Busch Series Grand National Saturday Night, September 12, 1998 - NASCAR Winston Cup
The procured note concludes that RIR trusts that the hotels will continue to offer the 'fan friendly' rates previously extended to visitors of RIR.
