Richmond International Raceway and Chesterfield, Virginia’s Denny Hamlin are joining forces to host the fourth annual Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown on Thursday night, April 28. The event will feature several NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers, celebrities and local Late Model drivers battling on the ¾-mile track.
Just before another thrilling race gets underway at Richmond International Raceway, three of Virginia’s favorite sons and stars on the NASCAR® circuit will take some early laps – on foot – with thousands of race fans as part of the Coca-Cola Family Track Walk, a season-long program designed to encourage active family fun.

After pulling into Gatorade Victory Lane and seeing the Chevy Rock & Roll 400 trophy, Hamlin remarked, “This is the coolest trophy you can get and I’ve always wanted to get it.”
Brothers, Darrell and Michael Waltrip tell like it is at Richmond - You've Got to See It.
Our 5 year old has wanted to attend a race since he was 2 and understood Mom and Dad were going to watch the cars go fast. For his 6th birthday we promised him he could go. Ryan Newman is his guy, who he chose all by himself. We expected he would get to the all day tailgating and want to go home. But as soon as he saw his first car rush by (Michael Waltrip) for qualifying he was hooked. After the 1st race weekend, he began asking when the next race is. He has a hard time understanding it is a few months until September for the Chevy Rock & Roll 400. - Submitted by Dr. Vickie Carey
