Elliott, Ragan, and Peters Highlight NASCAR Drivers Committed Early to Race Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown at South Boston Speedway on April 23

Fireworks presented by Danville Toyota and Scion and a meet and greet with celebrity drivers are added to fan experience

Limited amount of discounted advance tickets still available at South Boston ticket office and hotline 1-877-440-1540

SOUTH BOSTON, VA (March 27, 2015) – 2014 NASCAR XFINITY Series Champion Chase Elliott joins NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver David Ragan and Virginia’s own Timothy Peters as early headliners to race against host Denny Hamlin in the eighth-annual Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown at South Boston Speedway on April 23. This 200-lap charity Late Model race showcases the best Late Model racers in the region against NASCAR counterparts with event proceeds benefiting the Denny Hamlin Foundation and its on-going support of Cystic Fibrosis research and treatment.

The trio join three more Virginia stock car racing natives Hermie Sadler, Jeb Burton and Gray Gaulding in going to battle against the likes of Late Model drivers Matt Bowling, the 2014 Showdown winner, and CE Falk, who was the first Late Model winner of the Showdown in 2010 at Southside Speedway.

“With a record amount of drivers committed to run the Short Track Showdown, this event looks to be one of the most competitive fields that we have seen,” said Hamlin, another Virginia native who last won the Showdown in 2011 at Richmond International Raceway. “None of these drivers like to lose, they are all as competitive as I am. Anyone of them can make it to victory lane.”

For racing fans wanting to get up-close to the drivers, the first 25 fans to purchase a “Suite Package” priced at $200 will be invited to join the drivers in the infield for the drivers meeting and an exclusive meet and greet with select celebrity drivers that will include autograph signing. (All proceeds from the Suite Package will go to the Denny Hamlin Foundation).

New for 2015, and an experience for the entire crowd to enjoy, Danville Toyota and Scion is sponsoring a fireworks show that will take place immediately following the 200-lap main event.

Advance tickets to the Short Track Showdown are available by calling the track ticket hotline at 1-877-440-1540. A limited amount of the 1,100 advance-discounted tickets are still available for $20. After the first 1,100 advance tickets are sold, the price increases to $25. Children ages 6 and under are free with an Adult ticket purchase. Season passes are not honored for this special event. The “Suite package” costs $200 and includes a meet and greet, autograph signing, and an invitation to the driver’s meeting.

ABOUT SOUTH BOSTON SPEEDWAY

Open since 1957, South Boston Speedway has earned a reputation as the home of the best NASCAR-sanctioned short track racing in the country. The 4/10-mile, quad-oval has been the stomping ground for many of NASCAR’s top racers, as well as the breeding ground for some of the most talented NASCAR racing stars. South Boston last hosted a national touring NASCAR race in 2003 when the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series visited for a final time. The NASCAR Busch Series regularly ran there until 2000, while the last NASCAR premier series race, now known as the Sprint Cup Series, was held in 1971. Today, the track affectionately known as SoBo, hosts weekly NASCAR Whelen All-American Weekly Series events plus several touring and special events, including the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour. Spectator capacity is 10,000.

ABOUT DENNY HAMLIN FOUNDATION

As such, DHF partners with organizations that focus on CF research, treatment advances, and overall quality of life care. The Foundation will also support children with other chronic diseases. To carry out its mission, DHF conducts fundraising events, accepts contributions, grants, and gifts of money and property; and will invest the same and/or distribute to other exempt organizations as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
