The Federated Auto Parts 400 marks the 127th Cup race hosted by Richmond Raceway in the series’ history. The .75-mile oval located in Henrico County, Virginia has an asphalt racing surface with 14 degrees of banking in turns 1-4. With 8 degrees on the frontstretch and 2 degrees on the backstretch, this track is similar to an intermediate track but races like a short track. Due to COVID-19, the Cup Series missed the first scheduled race at Richmond this year, creating uncertainty heading into the second race of the Round of 16. Richmond held its first Cup race in 1953 and Lee Petty won.
