Celebrate NASCAR Day with free Pace Car rides
Richmond International Raceway, 600 E. Laburnum Avenue, will celebrate the ninth annual NASCAR Day on Friday by giving fans extra incentive to share their passion for the sport and make a difference in the lives of children this year.
Fans who purchase a NASCAR Day 2012 lapel pin at the track from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 18 will receive a complimentary pace car ride. Guests must enter at the Service Gate, which is located on Meadowbridge Road, one gate down from the Main Gate.
To continue raising awareness, fans can visit the NASCAR Foundation’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/NASCARFoundation between now and NASCAR Day to “Pin It Forward” with their $20 donation for a pair of commemorative pins – one for yourself, and one for a friend. In addition to helping the cause online, fans may post pictures displaying their spirit – and their pins – and share the story of what it means to “Pin It Forward.”
NASCAR Day is an annual celebration of NASCAR’s fans, charities and spirit. Since it began in 2004, NASCAR Day has raised nearly $10 million for charity.
Richmond International Raceway's 13th annual Community Christmas tree lighting has been rescheduled from Dec. 6 to Monday, Dec. 12, at 6 p.m., due to inclement weather expected on the original date.
Entertainment Dec. 12 will be provided by the Laburnum Elementary School choir and the Henrico High School Mighty Marching Warriors band. Tree decorations crafted by students from Laburnum Elementary School and L. Douglas Wilder Middle School will be on display. Hot chocolate and cookies will be supplied by the Henrico High School football boosters. > Read more.
