RICHMOND INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY PRESIDENT DECALS TRACK WALL WITH FIRST "LOCKED IN" CHASE CONTENDER'S CAR NUMBER

Richmond, VA (August 19,2010)-- With the Race to The Chase winding down, inching closer and closer to "One Last Race to Make The Chase"--the Air Guard 400--at Richmond International Raceway on Saturday, September 11, track president Doug Fritz is working diligently to prepare the track walls.

That preparation includes decaling the car numbers of the Chase contenders who are "locked in" to the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup prior to the Air Guard 400 race at America's Premier Short Track. Kevin Harvick is the first driver to lock in his spot, as evidenced by the #29 decal that Fritz placed on the wall at Richmond International Raceway today.

Fritz will continue to plaster the track walls and paint the apron of the track surface with the numbers of the locked in Chase contenders prior to "One Last Race to Make The Chase" on Saturday, September 11 at Richmond International Raceway.

Tickets for the Air Guard 400, which is "One Last Race to Make The Chase," start at $40 and can be purchased by logging on to www.rir.com or calling 866-455-RACE (7223).

Friday, September 10 features a full day of track activity, highlighted by the Virginia 529 College Savings 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race "under the lights." Friday's ticket includes Fas Mart Pole Qualifying and practice for the Nationwide Series, as well as WRIC-TV8 Pole Qualifying and practice for the Nationwide Series. Friday's tickets start at $30.
