Richmond Raceway Reimagined (Reimagined) hit a major milestone this week with the completion of the foundations for the new Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garages. The engaging new Cup garages will be a trademark component of Richmond Raceway’s (Richmond) modernized infield, highlighted by interactive fan viewing walkways to allow fans to get closer than ever to their favorite drivers and put them in the middle of the action with teams on race weekends.
“The foundation being poured for the new Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garages is a momentous milestone for Richmond Raceway Reimagined,” said Richmond President Dennis Bickmeier. “This signals the beginning of modernizing our infield to be more welcoming for fans, drivers, and race teams. We have many more milestones to celebrate in the coming months with Richmond Raceway Reimagined.”
To date over 1,000 cubic yards of concrete has been poured into the infield. The next Reimagined milestone will be the new pedestrian tunnel being installed in Turn 1, widening from six to ten feet, with an elevator rising in the newly developed infield.

Reimagined is a $30 million infield redevelopment project bringing new attractions and state of the art fan-based attractions to the historic Richmond infield. Once completed, the new space will blend modern amenities for today’s fans with the iconic Richmond racing experience fans have come to expect.
Rising above Reimagined will be an exclusive 80-person rooftop club overlooking Gatorade Victory Lane; providing one of the most unique views in all of NASCAR. Two new garage suites, featuring ground level views of the Monster Energy Series garage will also debut in the modernized infield. Additionally, Reimagined provides partners with new fan engagement opportunities and innovative signage that is unprecedented in the market.
The modernized infield debuts over Richmond’s first NASCAR playoff weekend on September 21-22, 2018. Fans can purchase tickets to be in the new infield and become a part of history. One-day ($70) and two-day ($125) tickets are available for purchase by calling 866-455-7223 or visiting the Richmond Ticket Office.
