NASCAR at Richmond: TV schedule, dates, times, qualifying drivers for Toyota Owners 400

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has 28 races remaining to add to his career wins list before he retires at the end of the season.

While NASCAR and its fans are still coming to terms with Dale Earnhardt Jr. leaving the sport, there's still a chance he goes out on top and it begins with a win at Richmond Sunday to qualify for the playoffs.

Junior has 28 races remaining to add to his career wins list before he retires at the end of the season. Luckily for NASCAR's most popular driver, he's won at Richmond three times, most recently in 2015.

Richmond is 0.25 miles longer than Bristol and Martinsville, but NASCAR still categorizes it as a short track. It's actually most similar to Phoenix's one-mile flat track and it's no surprise drivers who've had success at Phoenix — including Earnhardt — have been contenders at Richmond.

This weekend the Xfinity Series joins the Cup Series at the home track of Denny Hamlin, who is seeking his fourth Cup win there. Here's the weekend schedule.
