Denny Hamlin’s No. 11 car is featuring a flat car design this weekend at Martinsville Speedway to announce FedEx’s new flat rate shipping, FedEx One Rate.
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Camping World RV Sales 500 at Talladega Superspeedway was a bit unique for the large track that has become well known for major late race accidents that often involve a large portion of the cars in the field. Although nerves were certainly still on edge and the race still had its share of moments that took your breath away, the big chain reaction wreck never occurred.
Fortunately for Joe Gibbs Racing all three of its teams managed to avoid the accidents that did occur and when it was over Kyle Busch led the way with a fifth-place finish, while Matt Kenseth finished 20th and a engine failure left Denny Hamlin back in 38th.
With four races remaining in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship, Kenseth is now second in the point standings, trailing Jimmie Johnson by just four points. Meanwhile Kyle Busch was able to climb two spots in the standings and is now third and just 26 points behind Johnson.
Talladega is the restrictor plate race in the Chase. How does the restrictor plate work? Plus how do Matt and Kyle usually perform at Talladega?

From Denny Hamlin
How can you turn the consistency the team has shown at Charlotte into your first career win at the track?
“Charlotte has been one of our more consistent tracks over the past couple years. We have been fortunate to bring fast cars there and get good qualifying positions to try to stay up front in the races. We need that again on Saturday night. Charlotte is going to be fast and fun under the lights, and hopefully we have a car that can compete for the win when it gets down to the end.”
