Richmond Raceway

Richmond, VA

This $30 million infield redevelopment project will bring a variety of enhanced amenities for fans, teams, sponsors, and other stakeholders to the iconic Richmond infield.

The team worked closely with Henrico County administration and staff on a fast-paced, high-profile project, facilitating meetings between ISC and the County to introduce the project concepts, goals, and schedule needs at all levels during the programming and schematic design phase. Meetings were held early in the design development phase to engage review staff and explore compliance options for stormwater management, permitting, traffic and utility models in particular. When concerns about the aging water system and meter capacity were raised, the team suggested breaking the POD into phases to study the situation with DPU without impacting the construction schedule. Working closely with DPU staff on multiple modeling iterations led to an innovative metering solution that saved ISC significant money while also improving water and fire flows to the Raceway Complex.

Richmond Raceway Reimagined will provide a completely redesigned and modernized infield. Race fans will be able to get closer than ever to NASCAR’s best with new Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garages and a fan viewing walkway providing full immersion into the sport. Fans will also be able to watch race cars complete their runs through inspection stations in the new infield. An 80-person club experience with roof access will overlook the new Gatorade Victory Lane and media will be hosted in a new Media Center with broadcast booths, a conference room, and hospitality space.
