Two Virginia natives are teaming up for the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. 2011 championship crew chief, Darian Grubb of Floyd, Virginia will sit atop Chesterfield, Virginia native Denny Hamlin’s pit box in 2012.
It’s always the season for giving at Richmond International Raceway. Track President Dennis Bickmeier announced today that nonprofits reaped well over a quarter of a million dollars through donations and volunteer opportunities at Richmond International Raceway in 2011.
“It just doesn’t get any better than Richmond Raceway. It’s the ultimate in short-track racing, and doesn’t get any more exciting than that. This is where my first victory came. Richmond is always going to be special for me.”
