The OFFICIAL Stock Car Developmental League

Arena Racing USA® is exciting, family-friendly entertainment which features half-scale stock cars racing around a $500,000.00 high-banked race track inside the Richmond Coliseum. The cars circle the hockey rink sized track at speeds nearing 50-mph – in less than 8 seconds! The racers run 2 and 3 abreast around this indoor track with all of the bumping, rubbing, crashing, and even flipping, normally associated with stock car races. In between the racing action, there is great music, spectator contests, T-shirt cannons, and awesome prizes!

What can you expect?  …Real racing, wrecks, and fun!
RIR‘s President Dennis Bickmeier captured this exciting moment:

The Arena Racing USA® season runs from November  to April, and makes for an excellent family outing during the cold, dark months of winter. This is REAL auto racing with exclusive spec matched ARENACARS® made for fan and family-friendly fun. Built with multiple exciting short races, and just enough noise to help create the racing atmosphere (some bring earplugs for kids, but most find them totally unnecessary and talk & cheer during and between the races). Can’t do that at the movies!  …Even if you are not a NASCAR fan, Arena Racing USA® is a great way to spend an amazing evening with your kids, friends, and co-workers.

Final Race Report 2015/216

RICHMOND, Va. (Apr. 22)Outgoing Pro Series champion Cody Carlton of Chesapeake, Va., made quite a valedictory statement on Friday evening at the Richmond Coliseum, picking up his 11th and 12th wins of the season with a sweep of the Top Dog and A Main races, as Arena Racing USA brought the curtain down on its 2015-16 campaign with the Care Advantage 200.

While Carlton enjoyed two trips to the winner’s circle, Camden Testerman of Sandston, Va., scored a pair of runner-up finishes to clinch his first Pro Series championship. Testerman became the Richmond area’s first homegrown Pro Series champ since Arena Racing USA returned full-time to Virginia’s capital city for the 2011-12 season, wresting the title from a veteran cadre of Hampton Roads-area competitors.

As anticipated, Friday’s Top Dog race, the season’s final event, was a hard-hitting affair, punctuated by eight caution flags.
