What’s Happening?

The NASCAR circus rolls to one of its oldest venues this weekend. Richmond Raceway in the Virginia State Capitol hosts the first of its two race weekends, and we are here to make sure you can follow all of the action. Here is the complete Richmond TV schedule.

  • Richmond Raceway is a 0.75-mile D-shaped oval located on the outskirts of Richmond, Virginia. The track has 14 degrees of banking in the turn. The old surface means that tire wear is drastic, and tire management is crucial to winning.
  • NASCAR held their first race at Richmond in 1953, and they have raced at the track every year since 1955, including two races every season since 1959. Originally a 0.542-mile bullring, the track was reconfigured in 1988 into the modern 0.75-mile D-shaped oval we know today.
  • Fans are excited to see NASCAR return to Richmond. It’s a traditional NASCAR venue, and NASCAR racing on Easter weekend is quite exciting to many fans.

What to Watch For This Weekend

Cup Series

Every manufacturer had their moments at Richmond in 2023. Hendrick Motorsports won in the spring with Kyle Larson after William Byron led the most laps, and RFK Racing combined to lead 190 laps in the summer race with Chris Buescher winning. Toyota was still near the front in both races, leading 153 laps in the spring and 188 laps in the summer, and at least one car in the top-5 in both races.

No open entries, so, every entrant will race on Sunday. Notable entries include Kaz Grala (#15) and Ty Dillon (#16).

Xfinity Series

Chevrolet dominated the Xfinity Series race at Phoenix in 2023, combining to lead 170 of 250 laps. Chandler Smith took home his first career Xfinity Series win, so, watch out for him. Sammy Smith is another driver to watch out for, as he led 40 laps last year, and he joins Chevrolet this season.

A total of 38 cars are entered for 38 spots, so every driver entered will race on Saturday. Notable entries include Logan Bearden (#14), Aric Almirola (#20), Corey Heim (#26), Ryan Vargas (#32), Matt DiBenedetto (#38), Bubba Pollard (#88). The #66 MBM Entry has withdrawn from the event.

*Morgen Baird will no longer be competing on Saturday for JD Motorsports as he heads to home to be with his fiance as she is induced into labor. Garrett Smithley will drive in place of Baird, but the entry list has yet to be updated.
