NASCAR weekend should cause traffic problems

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond International Raceway becomes the center of the NASCAR universe this weekend.

There's a race Friday night and a big sprint race is Saturday night.

This will likely cause traffic issues around that area. Our traffic reporter Tracy Lynn suggests avoiding the area all together this weekend.

Possible alternates could be interstate-295 and interstate-64.

On street parking is prohibited for those going to the race. A shuttle service will be available starting at noon at the showplace.
