RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - New Richmond International Raceway president Dennis Bickmeier plans to "stay out of the way" and get the lay of the land leading up to the track's race in September.
Bickmeier was named to succeed Doug Fritz on Wednesday, the day Fritz resigned to pursue other opportunities. Bickmeier had been a vice president at Michigan International Speedway.
RIR will host the final race to set the field for NASCAR's 10-race chase for the Sprint Cup on Sept. 10. It is one of the most anticipated races of the season and Bickmeier says the staff at Richmond is well on its way in preparations to have that weekend go smoothly.
Bickmeier oversaw communications, corporate partnership sales, and ticket sales and operations at Michigan.
