Heading for Road Course Racing

Sprint Cup Series

 

From Denny Hamlin

How do you approach the season’s first road course race this weekend in Sonoma?
Obviously, you have to approach the road course races a little bit different, in terms of pit strategy on Sunday and what you look for in your car. Sonoma is a very tight, technical track, as opposed to Watkins Glen, and you need to make sure your car can get off the corners. To get a good finish, you need to stay clean throughout the majority of the race, and be aggressive when it’s warranted to get around guys. We have been the victim of some aggressive driving there the past couple of years in Turn 11, so it’s important we stay up front.”

Kyle Busch came back from an early penalty on pit road to lead Joe Gibbs Racing with a fourth-place finish in Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

Matt Kenseth also finished in the top ten with a strong sixth-place run, while Denny Hamlin battled an extremely loose racecar all afternoon before settling for a 30th-place finish on the two-mile speedway.

Off to Michigan

Sprint Cup Series

From Denny Hamlin

Do you think Michigan is a track where the FedEx team can capitalize with a victory?
“Michigan is definitely a place that our FedEx team has had success at in the past, winning a couple races and running up front for the most part. It was a little tough on us last year after the repave, but hopefully we’ll have the speed to contend this weekend. Obviously, we can’t afford to have bad finishes and need to get a win or two, but most importantly, we have to minimize mistakes and finish where we should. If we take care of our business and put ourselves into position to win, that stuff will take care of itself.”
