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.

COVID 19 Update - After much review of the guidelines to reopen Motorsports Facilities from the Commonwealth of Virginia (https://www.governor.virginia.gov/…/Virginia-Forward-Phase-…) 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.
