The NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide series are off until the April 25 and 26 race weekend and Richmond (Va.) International Speedway and the Camping World Truck Series doesn’t race again until May, but several drivers will suit up April 24 for the Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown, scheduled for Aprile 24 at South Boston (Va.) Speedway. The event was formerly hosted at Richmond and at Southside Speedway near Hamlin’s hometown of Chesterfield, Va., before that.

“Moving the race to South Boston Speedway makes it a new challenge for the drivers and brings back a bit of NASCAR nostalgia for the fans and media,” Hamlin said. “Based on the interest and feedback I’ve heard, I expect the all-star line-up to be better than any we’ve had in our six year history of the event.”

Drivers who have been announced are Denny Hamlin’s Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth. David Ragan is another Sprint Cup driver who has committed to participate. Also, Joe Gibbs Racing driver in the Nationwide Series, Elliott Sadler, plans to be in the race, so does Drew Herring, who has raced sparingly in the Nationwide Series for JGR. Hermie Sadler, Elliott Sadler’s brother and former NASCAR driver, is also among those entered, as well as Truck Series competitors Timothy Peters and Jeb Burton.

Several of the aforementioned drivers began their racing careers at South Boston. As a matter-of-fact, Elliott Salder, Peters and Herring are all former track champions.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Denny Hamlin Foundation to support Cystic Fibrosis research and treatment.

“We at South Boston Speedway re honored to be the 2014 host of the Denny Hamlin charity race,” South Boston Speedway General Manager Cathy Rice said. “Fans of South Boston Speedway were witness to Denny’s talent when he would dominate late model stock races over 10 years ago. Over the past few years, we have also been witness to Denny’s talent as a philanthropist by creating this terrific event to benefit children with Cystic Fibrosis. We are truly honored to be able to support the Denny Hamlin Foundation and the great work they do.”
