Denny Hamlin interested in operating Southside Speedway

Speaking on his Actions Detrimental podcast, Denny Hamlin issued a clarification over his weekend comments at Texas Motor Speedway about his interest in operating or otherwise purchasing Southside Speedway in Midlothian, Virginia.

Effectively, his messaging remains the same in that he says he has had conversations with the county and or state and he would be interested in operating his childhood home track that has been closed since November 2020 but most likely only if he owned it.

An exception to that standard would be if the county or state contributed to the renovation costs since Hamlin believes his investment would contribute to the modernization and long-term viability of the facility in terms of the types of events it would generate towards tourism revenue.
