Yes, NASCAR Racing and Youth Soccer do have something in common. Both are coming to Richmond, Virginia this March.
Each spring the children who live in new home communities throughout the Richmond area can be seen out in their front yards practicing their offensive game, each hoping to impress the college scouts out recruiting.
On the flip side, NASCAR is back in the area. If you’re planning on attending any of the Richmond NASCAR events, you’ll need to leave home pretty early in order to beat traffic to the race track on a pretty race day.
And if the weather holds true, than May 1st is sure to be a pretty race day in Richmond. Over 100,000 fans will watch the Crown Royal 400 at Richmond International Raceway and see their favorite drivers careen around the track at break-neck speeds.
For all the Richmond soccer fans, mark your calendars for the second and third weekends in March. Over 750 Soccer teams will play in the Jefferson Cup, the No. 1 ranked Youth Soccer tournement in the county. Teams come from as far North as Canada, as far South as Texas and as far west Colorado to try to impress over 400 college coaches with their soccer skills, each player hoping to receive a college scholarship. Striker Park will be the headquarters for the weekend long sports fest and is just around the corner from several great Boone Homes Communities including Westcott, Bellingham, Kinloch and Grey Oaks Villas.
Get ready Richmond because you’re in for three weekends of great sports fun! Come out and enjoy some great Soccer March 11-14 and March 19-21 and don’t forget the big race weekend May 1, it’s sure to provide entertainment for the whole family.
