Stenhouse, Larson Added To Hamlin Shootout Field

Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Kyle Larson have added their names to the list of competitors for the Sixth Annual Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown at Richmond International Raceway Thursday night, driving for Lee Faulk Racing.  

Stenhouse will compete in Faulk's No. 25 Ford, with support from Plan B Sales and AccuDoc Solutions. Although this will be the first time he has competed in the DHSTS, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Rookie of the Year contender is no stranger to Richmond International Raceway. He has six starts in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at the .75-mile oval, with one pole and four Top-5 finishes.  

"Denny has been able to raise a lot of money for charity through this race each year, and I'm happy to support him and the causes his foundation supports," explained Stenhouse. "I enjoy getting to the short tracks each season, and Richmond is always a lot of fun to race, so I expect we'll have a good time on Thursday night. I have to thank Plan B Sales and AccuDoc Solutions for the opportunity to be a part of such a great event." 

Larson will take to the track in the No. 15 Vizio/huluPLUS machine, making his second start at Richmond International Raceway. He made his debut there last season in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, starting on the outside pole and finishing fourth. In addition to participating in the DHSTS, Larson will also compete in Friday night's NASCAR Nationwide Series race. 

"I love to race anything, but it's extra special to get to be a part of this one, since it supports such a good cause," said Larson. "I had a good time racing at Richmond last season in the East Series, so I'm excited to get out there in the Vizio/huluPLUS Chevrolet. It will also be nice to get a little extra track time before my Nationwide debut at the track on Friday night."
