Race weekend is in full swing at Richmond International Raceway.
People arrived at the track as early as 5 a.m. Friday. The Nationwide Series is on Friday and the Sprint Cup Series is on Saturday.
Extra safety precautions will be taken in light of the Boston Marathon.
Henrico officers will be around the track in both plain clothing and in uniform. There will also be extra security cameras to keep and eye on the crowds.
There are some things race officials will not allow fans to bring to the event: hard coolers, seat cushions with arm rests, flag poles, strollers, and pets.
