On the heels of Richmond-area hotels offering reduced lodging rates and reducing or eliminating minimum night stays, AirTran Airways will be offering 10-percent off flights to Richmond International Airport for the May 1-2 NASCAR doubleheader weekend at Richmond International Raceway.

As part of AirTran Airways’ EventSavers program, travelers can receive 10-percent off their flight to Richmond by calling 866-68EVENT (866-683-8368) and using event code: RIC050109.

With the EventSavers program, the airline known for everyday low fares is now offering a way to save even more on airfare. With one call, travelers can receive a 10-percent savings off the flight cost to Richmond for the Crown Royal Presents the Russ Friedman 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the Lipton Tea 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series races at Richmond International Raceway, May 1-2.

Additional benefits of EventSavers include: no overnight stay or minimum stay requirement, priority advance seat assignments at time of ticketing and special event rates from Hertz.

The distance between the airport in Richmond and Richmond International Raceway is 10 miles and Google map directions are here. If you make last minute decisions like we do, this sounds like a very viable option for next weekend!
