After racing the past two weeks on 1.5 mile tracks, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series returns to the short track.
Saturday night under the lights, 43 drivers will tackle Richmond International Speedway in the Toyota Owners 400.
This will be the first of two visits the Spring Cup Series will make to the ¾-mile D-shaped oval.
Last season Kyle Busch won the spring race at Richmond and we will look to defend that title on Saturday.
The track holds 94,000 spectators and many of those will be RV camping for the weekend.
The following are three RV Park options if you are planning on attending the race this weekend.
This 17-site campground is located 18 miles from the speedway in Glen Allen, Virginia.
