“The Richmond International Raceway is located at 600 East Laburnum Avenue [JW1] .” said Ellen White, Westbrook’s partner.  “While in Richmond, there are many points of interest you may wish to visit.  At this time of year, the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens are beautiful and there are several museums including the Virginia Museum of Fine Art, the Virginia Science Museum and The Children’s Museum of Virginia.   A ride down Monument Avenue identifying the various monuments, both historic and modern, is entertaining as well as educational.  There are restaurants too numerous to mention offering just about any type of fare imaginable in Richmond.  The Tobacco Company and Hondo’s are always favorites.”
