Or hell, just give me some good short track racing.
It’s time to head on back for some Saturday night racing at Richmond!
Some easy stats for Richmond for now. The original dirt track of the fairground measured more accurately at a true 1/2 mile and was paved over and lengthened during the summer months of 1968.
The track was redone again in 1998- when it went from a half mile (well, really a .625-er) to .75 mile track.
David Pearson won the last dirt track race, Richard Petty won the first race on the newly paved surface and in the modern era Rusty Wallace dominated the track.
