Description:
The Wonderful Pistachios 400 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup stock car race held at the Richmond International Raceway in Richmond, Virginia. Since 2004, the race has served as the last race in NASCAR's "regular season". After this race, the top twelve drivers in the standings (originally ten) advance to the ten-race Chase for the Sprint Cup. The race is sponsored by the Wonderful Pistachios.

From 2001-2009, the race was sponsored in some form by Chevrolet. From 2001-2002, the race was in partnership with the Looney Tunes. Various Chevrolet and Pontiac teams would run paint schemes that featured different Looney Tunes. From 2003-2009, the race became rock and roll themed, with some Chevrolet teams donning paint schemes to promote various rock artists.

Because of its proximity to (and has been held on) Patriot Day, the Pledge of Allegiance is included as part of the opening ceremony.
