Track Talk: Signs point to exciting return to Richmond

Historical track: Like the rest of Virginia, there is plenty of history to consume at Richmond Raceway.
Years later, Petty’s son, Richard, set the track record by winning seven consecutive races and nine in 10 attempts from 1970-75.
Dubbed “Richmond Raceway Reimagined,” the views from inside the track are unique and celebrated, and a new tunnel eases the transition from the grandstands to the infield.
Limited experience: Because Indy cars haven’t raced at Richmond in 11 years, there are only seven current drivers who have racing experience there.
Winners up front: In the nine Indy car races at Richmond, eight of the winners started in the first two rows.
