The Toyota Owners 400 is a 400 lap Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Seriesstock car race held at the Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Virginia. From 2007 to 2011, former race title sponsor Crown Royal named the race after Essay Contests 2012 Toyota winner of an essay contest during Daytona Speedweeks.

Since 2010 only military service members have been eligible to win the contest. Crown Royal moved the "Your Name Here" sponsorship to the Brickyard 400 beginning in 2012.
The race is currently held as a Sunday afternoon event in late April. For several years, it was held as a daytime event the weekend after the Daytona 500 in February. Lights were installed at the facility in 1991, but the spring race remained during the day.

Starting in 2012, the race was held on the last Saturday in April, after the race switched dates with the spring Talladega race. The race returned to Sunday afternoon in 2016 but returned to Saturday night in 2018.

Dansk A – Litteratur/studietur
Storbyen fascinerer, den drager og afstøder, den inspirerer og lukker sig om individet. København har altid haft en særlig plads i dansk litteratur og mange, meget forskellige fortællere har beskæftiget sig med byens puls, som mødestedet mellem det globale og det lokale. Det sted de kommer fra, det sted de kommer til eller det sted de bare er. Forløbet København København kortlægger byens og stedets indflydelse fra Herman Bang til Raske Penge.
