Bio: Whether under the lights or the bright sun of day, the Richmond Raceway is home to excitement. The “Action Track” as its known, combines the best of both worlds, superspeedway speeds and short-track action. At three quarters of a mile on length, it’s not unusual to witness tempers flaring at Richmond.
