The race will be held at the Richmond International Raceway, which has the only three-quarter-mile track on the circuit.

Virginia Commonwealth hangs onto Coach Smart

 

Shaka Smart has shown that he is one of the hottest, coveted young coaches in college basketball. But his name did not start to circulate until VCU’s recent run through the NCAA Torunament ended in the Final Four. His name came up when several schools were looking for a basketball coach. But he’s staying put in Richmond, Virginia.

Virginia Commonwealth University is pleased to be keeping Smart. The school says that he has agreed to a new eight-year contract.

Smart, in his second-year after replacing Anthony Grant, who left for the Alabama job, led the Rams to the “First Four” Games in the NCAA Tournament to upsets of powerhouse programs including Georgetown, Purdue and Kansas to reach the Final Four.

VCU became only the third number 11 seeded team to advance that far in the tournament, losing to Butler 70-62 in the national semifinal on Saturday.

Smart has a record of 55-21 at VCU and will celebrate his 34th birthday on Friday, April 8.
