RIR and Richmond VA Travel FAQ with some helpful answers
> Is there camping at the track?
RV Parking Camping is limited in the RIR Speedway infield since it's only a .75 mile oval, and there is a waiting list for spaces and no shower facilities available. Call the track for more - (804)-345-RACE). Some homes/lots provide camping in the area around the race track but these can be awfully overpriced and of course are provided on a first come first served basis. Of course Virginia (around Richmond) is not without its campsites and camping grounds, and for this you should consult your usual camping listing website. Beware though parking/traffic problems in the heavily congested area on race days. Seems like a hotel and then the free shuttle is the best bet for the race travelers to this event/destination. See below for more about this.. You'll find all kinds of offers for regular and special tickets at my Speedway Tickets page.

> What about parking at RIR?
Parking is usually free at the racetrack, off Carolina Avenue to the east of the racetrack in an industrial park, but don't think about camping there, there's a tow-away policy inforced by local County Sherrif's 3 hours after the final event on Friday and Saturday night of race weekend. Note too that traffic, as at all such events, is directed, particularly after the event. Check the official website for a map on inbound and outbound traffic plans.

> Got beer? Yep. Richmond has a few good value micro breweries. Recomended are Legend Brewery: http://www.legendbrewing.com/.
> Liquor Laws: The legal drinking age in Virginia is 21.
> Virginia State Tax: State Sales Tax, over and above list price is 5%. Richmond City also has a hotel ∓ food tax. Not sure if there's a local tax in Henrico county, where the track is located.
> Time Zone: EST GMT -5
Electricity plugs are 2 prong paralel, but some older plugs accept a third round earth grounding.
