The Short Track Showdown

For the third year in a row, Richmond International Raceway and hometown favorite Denny Hamlin are teaming up to host the sixth annual Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown at America’s Premier Short Track on Thursday, April 25.

The race, which typically features a dozen NASCAR drivers and celebrities battling on the ¾-mile track with some of the best local Late Model Stock Car drivers, will serve as a fundraiser for the Denny Hamlin Cystic Fibrosis Research Lab at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU.
