Richmond International Speedway President Dennis Bickmeyer told Sirius XM NASCAR Radio's Sirius Speedway with Dave Moody that his facility suffered no apparent damage in the magnitude 5.8 earthquake centered 90 miles south of Washington, DC.
Tuesday's earthquake was felt as far south as the Carolinas and north into New England. Phone service, air and train traffic was all disrupted -- at least briefly -- across the region, and the Pentagon, White House and Capitol building were evacuated as a precaution. NBC is reporting that the quake broke a water main inside the Pentagon, flooding parts of two floors. Two nuclear reactors near the epicenter were undamaged, but taken offline as a precaution. Memorials and monuments on the National Mall were also closed. No injuries were reported.
