Yes, Virginia International Raceway is a sports car track. As Paul Newman said after a visit to VIR, "If there's a heaven on earth it's VIR".
It's the type of track that you roam around and sit on a blanket in the shade to watch the race. Very relaxed.
Shade and picnic tables are located all around the track.
All of the track buildings have an old farm look to them.
Many NASCAR teams are here for road course testing.
Professional race photographer John Davison is here today.
These buildings are private condos for people that live at the track. That's the road course going right by.
Chopper # N1RP just flew in. Get it R-P...Roger somebody.
One of the few small stands . Remember this is a roaming spectator track. Picnic and lay in the shade before the race.

the "large track" has barriers on it so these drivers have to turn right and cut across on the "south course" circuit.
there are several track configurations at VIR. One of them is seen behind Austin Dillon.

drivers pull off to the right to enter the pits. The building is one of the garages...with living area above the working areas.
