“Because we’re so crowded, we’re opening the doors at 3 in the afternoon instead of 6 o’clock,” Stienen said. “We hope to attract people with small children and the older folks who may not want to drive after dark.”

The event runs from 3 p.m. until midnight tonight at the Old Dominion Building at the Richmond International Raceway.
