Snag a piece of history at Richmond International Raceway

RIRlogoDale Earnhardt Jr., Kevin Harvick, Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch — all NASCAR superstars, all former NASCAR XFINITY Series champions. It truly is the series where names are made, and this September Richmond International Raceway ticketholders will have the chance to meet some of its stars at RIR’s NASCAR XFINITY Series autograph session.

With a lineup that includes 2014 NASCAR XFINITY Series champion Chase Elliott, Daytona International Speedway winner Ryan Reed, Richard Childress Racing rising star Ty Dillon and many more, it’s a chance to grab a piece of tomorrow’s history, today.

Down to the nitty gritty: The autograph session will be held at 2 p.m. in RIR’s Classic Amphitheater, located behind Turn 1. A wristband is required for admittance and will be available for pickup at the Virginia529 display on the Midway beginning at 10 a.m. and will be distributed while supplies last. You must have a Virginia529 College Savings 250 race ticket to receive a wristband.
