Denny kicking it Southside in April

We received an email today asking how we got the opportunities to meet and hang out with our NASCAR peeps. We could give plenty of advice but the best way for an outsider looking in is to get involved with charitable events sponsored by drivers.

Here is one for yall's calender. If you will be in town for the Richmond race on April 30th, Denny Hamlin is hosting The Short Track Showdown at Southside Speedway. This will benefit the Denny Hamlin Foundation and last year they raised $50,000. Also, attending will be Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch, Joey Lagano and spotter Curtis Markham in a 175 lap Limited Late Model race.

"I was thrilled with what we were able to do last year -- it was a great event for a great cause and this year it is our hope to double that donation," Hamlin said. "It means a lot that Tony, Kyle, Joey and Curtis are committed to helping me raise money for my foundation and I know we all want to put on a great show for the fans."

The Denny Hamlin Foundation was created in 2008 to aid in raising awareness and funding for Cystic Fibrosis research and treatment, as well support other not for profit corporations that focus on aiding children with debilitating illnesses.

Online ticket sales are exclusively at All proceeds from ticket sales, the silent auction and raffles will benefit the Denny Hamlin Foundation.
