Tune in: Coverage of the Nextel Cup in Richmond, Va., starts at 7 p.m. today on Ch.28 and 1010-AM. The green flag drops at 7:30.
Sellout: Tickets are a hot commodity for today's race at the three-quarter-mile Richmond International Raceway. For the 32nd straight time, the raceway marked a sellout crowd. That translates to 16 seasons of consecutive NASCAR Nextel Cup Series sellouts at the short track.
According to RIR's Web site, the last seating update to the track was fall 2003 when 1,400 seats were added for the 2004 season. That brought the total capacity to 107,097 seats.
