The Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown will not take place in 2019.  The event has been shuttered by the Denny Hamlin Foundation after originally being on the schedule for April 12th at Langley Speedway.

Here is a statement from the Denny Hamlin Foundation on the event not taking place in 2019.

“At this time, there are no plans to host the Denny Hamlin’s Short Track Showdown in 2019. A lot of factors need to properly align in order to produce an event like this. The Denny Hamlin Foundation has been fortunate to host the charity race nine times over the last 11 years, benefiting Cystic Fibrosis research and therapy. We anticipate the Short Track Showdown will return to the racing calendar in future years.”

No other details are available at this time.
