Martinsville Quotes and Notes

Denny Hamlin Quotes

Can you contend for the victory this weekend at Martinsville?

“This year — the spring race is the one race where we did just not run well. We had some setup issues that we found in the car afterwards, after the race was over — some mistakes that we made with our setup. Basically, putting the wrong pieces in the wrong places. So, that is hopefully why we ran so bad in the spring where we finished decent but not great. And so hopefully that’s rectified. Honestly, we look forward to going back. Especially, as good as our short track program’s been here in the last few races — between New Hampshire and Richmond — that don’t necessarily correlate, but still it drives like a short track.”

Kansas Race Review

Going into this weekend many thought the newly repaved surface of Kansas Speedway could make today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Hollywood Casino 400 a bit of a wild card race in the Chase. Despite two days of testing to help teams acclimate to the new conditions it was clear from the outset that it would indeed become a matter of survival in a race that featured an unusually high number of spins and cautions.

Denny Hamlin would lead Joe Gibbs Racing with a 13th place finish, while Joey Logano came home 19th and Kyle Busch had his day ended early with a wreck on lap 181 and finished 31st.

Denny Hamlin Quotes

How do you think the Kansas Speedway repave is going to affect the race on Sunday?

“As we have seen with all the repaved race tracks, the grip level and speeds are way up and there isn’t much tire wear. Luckily we’ll be out there to test a couple days to lay some rubber on the track, and hopefully a couple grooves will develop that we can use in the race. It’ll take a little bit to get used to the new surface, but I’m confident that Darian (Grubb) and the guys will prepare a fast FedEx Camry this weekend. We’re still in the thick of the Chase with five races to go, and we have some good tracks coming up for us.”
