It took the tallest structure in Henrico County to install a new tunnel at Richmond Raceway
Richmond Raceway Reimagined (Reimagined) hit a major milestone Monday with the installation of the new pedestrian tunnel. The $30 million infield redevelopment project at Richmond Raceway (Richmond) has been moving forward since the groundbreaking in September. The expanded pedestrian tunnel installed near Turn 1 will allow more fans to have access to the modernized infield.
“The installation of the new pedestrian tunnel is a milestone moment in the Richmond Raceway Reimagined infield redevelopment project,” said Richmond President Dennis Bickmeier. “The new, expanded pedestrian tunnel will make it easier for more fans to access the infield than ever before. We look forward to our loyal fans taking their first steps into the modernized infield in September 2018.”
The construction milestone was marked by long-time RICHMOND NATION member, Dean Lewis, who signed the pedestrian tunnel for our loyal season ticket holders. Lewis has attended races and camped at Richmond since 1974.
“It was an unbelievable experience to be a part of today’s Richmond Raceway Reimagined milestone event,” said Dean Lewis. “Richmond Raceway is one of the best tracks in the country. I cannot wait to return to walk in the new Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garages with my friends.”
