On Sat. April 27th, 2012 Sprint Cup race at Richmond International Raceway was renamed the Toyota Owners 400 (Capital City 400 presented by Virginia is for Lovers in 2012).
Crown Royal race sponsor has a contest which honors one lucky winner by naming the race after “The Crown Royal”. “Presents the Your Name Here 400” is a new name race method that has been happening since 2007 by an essay contest during Daytona Speedweeks in order to select the name. And this year has been named Heath Calhoun 400 in order to an Army veteran Heath Calhoun of Clarksville, Tennessee.
Richmond International Raceway
Richmond International is a short track that drives like a superspeedway. Side-by-Side all night long is possible. A faster driver has a lane to move up or down and get the pass done. The racing is tight and fast and the finishes are usually exciting. Saturday night racing under the lights in Richmond is NASCAR at its best.
The 3/4-mile D-shaped oval has just 14 degrees of banking in the corners but it is enough banking to provide great racing. While the other short tracks on the circuit (Martinsville and Bristol) tend to force drivers to hug the inside line to be fast, Richmond has multiple grooves. Drivers can run side-by-side for laps on end with no clear advantage to either lane.
