OFFICIAL COVID-19 UPDATE
As many of you have already read in the newspaper and on Facebook, there will be No racing in 2020. After reading Executive Order 65, Bill Sawyer has decidied he will not operate and run the track without fans, and with the current restrictions, we do not anticipate the chance to race any time soon. For that reason we will not open for the 2020 season and will step back and get ready for an even bigger and better 2021 racing season. Stay safe and healthy.
12800 Genito Rd., Midlothian, VA
"The Toughest Short Track in the South," Chesterfield County's favorite family-friendly venue! Locally owned and operated, Southside Speedway has been a fixture in Chesterfield County since 1959. With a paved 1/3 mile oval track located on Genito Road, and featuring races from six different divisions including Late Models, Modifieds, Grand Stocks, UCARs, Legends and Bandoleros. The speedway draws drivers both locally and throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
Schedule (Date / Event):
In light of the Governor’s eased restrictions for race tracks effective 29 May, Southside Speedway would like to convey to our drivers that we will continue to monitor the situation into June. Under the current guidelines we cannot operate with fans in attendance:
“No spectators or members of the public are permitted to attend the event. This includes owners, family (unless the guardian of a minor child), as well as outside vendors. Only individuals essential to the operation of the event are permitted to attend.”
Due to this regulation, we are making the decision to remain closed, for now. Thank you for your continued patience in these difficult times.
1955 Portugee Rd., Sandston, VA
Richmond Dragway is a 1/4 mile International Hot Rod Association sanctioned drag racing facility in Sandston, VA. The site features 130 acres with a full service concession stand, VP Fuel Station, and a 3 story Timing and Scoring tower.
Schedule (Date / Event):
COVID 19 Update - After much review of the guidelines to reopen Motorsports Facilities from the Commonwealth of Virginia many restless nights and much prayer, I have decided that for the immediate future, Richmond Dragway will not reopen during this restrictive phase of reopening. Clearly, the restrictions in place are designed to facilitate major events (with TV and outside revenues) to continue to operate (ie. NASCAR) and that is more than acceptable. There were a number of deciding factors in this decision including health & safety, financial considerations and general principle.
Richmond International Raceway (RIR)
600 East Laburnum Avenue, Richmond, VA
