New Hampshire Quotes and Notes


Denny Hamlin Quotes

What are your feelings on New Hampshire Motor Speedway
“It is a great track and a place that has been good for this team in the past. We seem to run a little better here in the summer than we do in the fall so we’ll be trying to run as well as we have here in past summers but also take something with us to learn from. This track is faster than you would think so you need horsepower to take advantage of the long straights, but getting through, and off, the corner is where you win or lose at New Hampshire. It’s definitely a little bit different than any other track we go to because it almost seems like it’s banked in the other direction on the bottom. But you can go way up high or run on the bottom so there are some options for you to find a fast line.”

How was your visit to Alaska?
“It was a great experience. I had never been to Alaska before, but got a chance to visit the Anchorage hub and there’s 1,300 FedEx employees at that hub and greeted all of them with smiles and they just had a great time. Living in Anchorage, Alaska, they don’t get to see a whole lot of racing, nor do they get to see their driver too often. So it was a very exciting time for them, and at the conclusion of that part of it, we went out in the parking lot and had some fun with some racing dogs and did some dog mushing. It was a lot of fun. Dallas (Seavey, 2012 Iditarod champion) was great to us. It was amazing to hear the conditions they go through, being anywhere from 40 (degrees) above zero to 50, 60 below zero during the Iditarod run, thousand-mile run. It’s amazing to see what they do on that side and what kind of racing they do.”

2012 Autism Speaks Paint Scheme

How can the FedEx team continue its momentum of recent success?
“The key for us is to get this race team running its best for the Chase. We are fortunate to have a couple wins already this year, which gives us the opportunity to try some things and work to get our cars better each and every week. Darian (Grubb, crew chief) and the guys have done a lot of work back at the shop to prepare these cars, and we can work on them at the track all summer to get our program at its best. We’ve had some solid runs the last four or five weeks, and hopefully that continues at Dover. Dover is one place that I have yet to completely figure out, so we’ll rely on our teammates to get some information this weekend. That’s always been a tough place for me, but it’s my job to give the team feedback to get our car as good as we can.”

Denny Hamlin Quotes

 
How important have these last couple weeks been for the team?

“We always knew we were a team capable of running up front and competing for wins, and we usually start a little slow, but this year it was just moved back a week or two. Usually, we turn it on when we get to Martinsville, and when we didn’t this year, people started to ask questions. The runs we had at Richmond and Darlington were good to gain some points on the guys in front of us. I knew it was only a matter of time before we started moving up, and hopefully we continue that at Dover this weekend. We just need to continue to put solid weeks together and everything will take care of itself.”

Richmond Quotes & Notes

 
 
 

Denny Hamlin Quotes

Do you always feel the excitement of racing at your home track?

“It never goes away – it’s still the race I look forward to the most. For me, having my charity race as part of Richmond week makes it all that more special. Getting a couple wins here was really important to me and this team and we absolutely want to come back and do it again.  We feel like this track is a place where we can run up front every time we come here and I know we all would be disappointed to come here and not perform at the level we expect to. This team could use a solid weekend, and I can’t think of a better track to come to for just that.”
