Track Takeover driven by AAA returns to Richmond International Raceway April 30, providing fans the opportunity to walk the track, enjoy interactive displays, and sign their name at the Start/Finish line just hours prior to the green flag. The fan-friendly event is open to all ticketholders of the TOYOTA OWNERS 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race from 10 a.m. to noon April 30.

At Track Takeover driven by AAA, Austin Dillon will take part in on-track activities hosted by Michael Blair on the Frontstretch Stage at 11 a.m. Fans will be able to see one of the sport’s young guns share stories about his time in the sport and his career to date.

As they walk the ¾-mile D-shaped oval and experience the 14-degree turns, they will find interactive displays providing behind-the-scenes peeks into the official Richmond Pace Car and the inside of driver Matt Tifft’s No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing NASCAR XFINITY Series hauler.
