Richmond International Raceway hosts the ninth race of the Sprint Cup Series season to headline a weekend that includes the Nationwide Series, K&N Pro Series East, NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and the World of Outlaws sprint cars.

After last weekend's Easter break, the .750-mile RIR oval is set to welcome back the Sprint Cup Series for Saturday night’s Toyota Owners 400.  Jeff Gordon leads Matt Kenseth by one point in the series standings.  After the season’s first eight races, seven different drivers have found Victory Lane with Kevin Harvick the only repeat winner.

MRN’s live coverage of the weekend begins Friday at 5 p.m. (ET) with Cup qualifying to set the field for the Toyota Owners 400.  Then, the Nationwide Series takes center stage for the ToyotaCare 250.  Motor Racing Network will take to the air for live coverage beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Immediately following the Nationwide Series race, the K&N Pro Series East caps off Richmond's busy Friday with the Blue Ox 150.  And on Saturday night, Motor Racing Network will provide live coverage of the Toyota Owners 400 starting at 6 p.m.

You can listen to all the Richmond broadcasts live on your local MRN radio station or on its website.  Every broadcast will also stream live at MRN.com ... which will be trackside at Richmond to bring you breaking news, results, statistics, features, photos, audio, video and post-race analysis.

Elsewhere, the Whelen Modified Tour has one of its most prestigious races on the schedule with Sunday’s running of the Spring Sizzler at Stafford Motor Speedway in Connecticut.  And the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series has a pair of races on tap starting with Friday night’s trip to Oklahoma’s Salina High Banks and then a Saturday visit to Missouri’s I-55 Speedway.
