What is Arena Racing?
Arena Racing is exciting, family-oriented entertainment which features ARENACARS®, real half-scale stock cars racing around a half-million dollar, high-banked race track inside the Richmond Coliseum. Every ArenaCar™ must meet the exact same league specifications to ensure that the action on the track is the result of good driving skills, not a mechanical advantage. 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 music, spectator contests, T-shirt cannons, and great prizes! The Arena Racing season runs from late Fall to Spring. Even if you are not a race fan, you will enjoy the excitement of Arena Racing and will value spending time with kids, friends, and co-workers.
