Denny Hamlin seemed to be on the verge of taking a 2021 season win at Richmond. He bagged stage 1 and stage 2 and led for most of the race. It came apart on a restart with 10 laps left.

Alex Bowman managed to get by Hamlin to put the #48 in Victory Lane. Hamlin came in the second slot and Joey Logano, who also had a good late race run, came in third. Denny and the FedEx team still top the points with rather consistent Top 5 runs into 2021. Racing takes NASCAR south to Talladega this weekend.

For local Virginia tracks, the options for race fans to catch some hot laps is still wide open. Motor Mile Speedway hosts the Southern Ground Pounders this weekend. They ran South Boston last week. Motor Mile will also run Late Models, Super Stock, Mod-4 and U-Car.

Wythe Raceway is on the dirt with Wythe Eye Pro Modifieds and several support races. Virginia Motor Speedway is also running the dirt with Late Models, Sportsman and Modifieds. Dominion Raceway hosts Late Models, Dominion Stock and other series. Natural Bridge is running their show this weekend, as well.

Local track action across Virginia continues to show green flags. Attendance may still be limited with some restrictions still in place but the vaccine pace is up with warmer weather on the way. Check your track and put some racing on your schedule!
