It's NASCAR race night at Richmond International Raceway, and we've got the actual race start time, the starting lineup and some other facts about Saturday's race for you below.
What time does the race start? The command to fire engines will be given by Virginia's lieutenant governor at 7:37 p.m. EDT. After the cars get rolling, the green flag will wave at 7:44 p.m. So if you want to skip the pre-race show and just tune in for the race, turn on your TV set by 7:44 p.m. Eastern time.
Race name/distance: The Capital City 400 is a 400-lap race around the 3/4-mile Richmond International Raceway. So for those of you who aren't math majors, the actual race distance is 300 miles.
TV and radio: The race can be seen on FOX. Every Sprint Cup Series race through May will be on the FOX network. Unfortunately, there is no live streaming of the race – but you can listen on the Motor Racing Network's Web site (just click the red link). You can also check MRN's site for a list of affiliate stations in your area.
*** NOTE: If you're out and about tonight and can't watch the race, make sure to follow me (@jeff_gluck) on Twitter. I'll be tweeting updates about the event. ***
National anthem: A military band from nearby Langley Air Force Base will do the honors. Can't go wrong with a military act.
Tickets: Richmond is not a sellout, so you're safe to take a chance on finding tickets at the gate if you want to make a last-minute trip.
Weather: The unofficial NASCAR weatherman, Brian Neudorff, says it will be a chilly night in Virginia with a chance of scattered showers in the area. Let's hope the race stays dry.
Last time: One year ago, Kyle Busch won at Richmond to win his third straight spring race at the short track. Then, at the Chase cutoff race last fall, Kevin Harvick went to Victory Lane after a suspicious spin by teammate Paul Menard brought out a late caution.
