Richmond, VA (Sports Network) - Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is expected to attend Saturday night's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond International Raceway.

According to a schedule release from his campaign on Friday, Romney is planning to appear at the racetrack, where he will participate in pre-race activities. He is scheduled to be in the Commonwealth of Virginia throughout Saturday, beginning with a campaign rally in Virginia Beach.

In February, Romney appeared at Daytona International Speedway for the season- opening Daytona 500. The race, however, was postponed one day due to rain.

Richmond is the regular-season-ending race in NASCAR's top series, with the full 12-driver field for the championship Chase to be determined. The Chase begins on Sept. 16 at Chicagoland Speedway.
