LOVEwork at Richmond International Raceway

The RIR staff teamed and constructed a LOVEwork, which is completely race-themed:

•“L” – made from Goodyear tires – the same ones seen weekly in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
•“O” – wrapped in checkered flag vinyl, symbolizing the checkered flag that waves at the conclusion of a race
•“V” – made of actual racing helmets
•“E” – made of sheet metal that were once part of cars that raced in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series races  
•The base for each letter is made from the metal used to construct the SAFER walls – interior retaining wall at Richmond International Raceway that absorbs energy from the impact of cars that hit the wall

Visitors are encouraged to take photos with the LOVEwork and share with loved ones on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/VirginiaisforLovers on on Twitter with the special hashtag #LOVEVA. A complete list of the LOVEwork locations is at www.Virginia.org/LOVE
