Racing fans will be heading to the Richmond International Raceway in Virginia on September 8th, as the track sees competitors in the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (Nascar) Nextel tour battle it out to be crowned winner of the event and potentially the season.
A D-shaped oval race track with banked sides allows drivers to maintain high speeds to excite the crowds at these events, as 99 drivers will compete in 36 races.
Split into two, the series is likely to provide fans with high-octane action as 26 races are completed normally, with only the top ten drivers racing to become winner in the final ten events.
If Nascar is not action-fuelled enough for tourists visiting Virginia this September, then Snowshoe Mountain sees the finale of the Full Throttle Mountain Bike Race Series, Whatsonwhen notes.
Amateur and pro riders show off aerial stunts to entertain those viewing the event from September 7th to 9th.
