Richmond International Raceway’s Grandstands Going Smoke-Free Beginning This Season

Rich_Intl_Raceway_C_thumb Richmond, VA (January 11, 2011)—Richmond International Raceway president Doug Fritz announced today that Richmond International Raceway’s grandstands will be smoke-free beginning this season. Fans who smoke may continue to do so, but in approved areas only. The new policy is in response to fan feedback.

“Beginning this season, smoking will not be permitted in and in front of the grandstands or in portals leading to seating areas,” said Fritz. “Additionally, restrooms, buildings and areas that were already smoke-free at Richmond International Raceway will continue to be smoke-free,” said Fritz. “We are implementing this policy based on comments received from fans. Those who wish to smoke may continue to do so in designated areas.”

Approved smoking areas include:
  • Underneath and behind the grandstands
  • Designated areas of the Commonwealth Mezzanine concourse
  • All parking lots
  • The Midway
  • In the campgrounds
  • Outdoors areas in fan hospitality
  • Miller Lite Ultimate Tailgate
Grandstand ushers will monitor seating areas to ensure the grandstands remain smoke-free at America’s Premier Short Track. Fans can notify an usher or use our text messaging service if they wish to report a violation of the non-smoking policy.

This initiative comes on the heels of the track’s wider seats and larger cooler policy. Fans will enjoy more spacious seating and be allowed to bring in coolers measuring up to 14 x 14 x 14 inches (six times larger than was previously allowed).
