Nascar has been doing Nationwide and Trucks there for years I dont think you will ever see a cup race there just because I dont see them adding any more racetracks under 1 mile.
Yes Wilber it is questionable on the cup event. Richmond is one of the most popular cup events. Rusty Wallace was a design consultant and Richmond was one of his favorite tracks. This track was designed using Richmond as a model. It is very wide and has progressive banking giving several lines and allowing passing anywhere on the track.
I have seen Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano overtaking slower cars shoot the gap running 3 wide going into turn 1. That was in the first K&N Pro race ran here.
It is a fast track, the Indy cars are turning in 190mph laps. The cup cars would put on a good show on this track
