The Federated Auto Parts, which is held in Richmond each year, is part of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. This stock car race is the last race in the regular NASCAR season and sixteen of the best drivers in the race move on to race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup's ten races. Initially held in the afternoon, the race is now held at night and was the second night race in the NASCAR schedule.
The Federated Auto Parts is a unique race; the Pledge of Allegiance is part of the race's opening ceremony, since it's often held near or on Patriot Day.
