Here’s Who’s Performing & Appearing at Richmond & Road America

A summer full of entertaining NASCAR action continues to heat up as the NASCAR Cup and NASCAR Craftsman Truck series head to The Old Dominion State for events at Richmond Raceway. The NASCAR Xfinity Series, meanwhile, shifts to Road America.

The spring weekend at Richmond featured plenty of heat on and off the track, including some late-race drama. With playoff spots on the line, the short track should play host to some thrilling action this weekend.

The Xfinity race is scheduled for July 29 at 3 p.m. ET on NBC.
