RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - NASCAR returns to the River City this weekend and also brings the chance to meet drivers at local events.
On Friday, Aug. 12, fans can stop by the Kroger along Staples Mill Road in Henrico to meet driver Ryan Blaney. He will be on-site to sign autographs, take photos and interact with fans from 6-7 p.m.
“I couldn’t be more excited to meet the fans in Richmond and to have both BODYARMOR and Kroger on the #12 car for the upcoming NASCAR race in Richmond,” said Blaney. “I’ve been with BODYARMOR for more than 5 years now – and we’ve had some great paint schemes over the years, so it’s always exciting racing with them and hopefully we can pull out a nice weekend here in Richmond.”
