All three Joe Gibbs Racing entries would spend the first half of the race using caution on the track in an effort to avoid any potential early accidents while running in the familiar pack style of racing at the 2.5-mile superspeedway. Fortunately for everyone, there were no major accidents and the first caution of the night wouldn’t come out until midway through the 160-lap race. Read more
Denny Hamlin led Joe Gibbs Racing with a third-place run in tonight’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Quaker State 400 from Kentucky Speedway, while teammates Kyle Busch and Joey Logano finished 10th and 22nd respectively.
Hamlin started his No. 11 FedEx Express Toyota third and raced inside the top five through the first half of the race as the team worked to free him up from tight handling conditions. A tremendous pit stop by the FedEx crew put Hamlin in second for a restart on lap 130 and he was able to just get past his teammate Busch to gain the lead for the first time on the night. Hamlin would go on to lead the next 56 laps. Hamlin would race among the leaders the rest of the way, but was forced to conserve fuel on the final run which limited his ability to catch leader Brad Keselowski. He would go on to finish with a strong third-place effort. Read more

Joey Logano started the No. 20 Home Depot Toyota in 14th and raced just outside the top ten through much of the first half of what proved to be a mostly caution free race. He would enter the top ten by lap 75 and remain among the leaders the remainder of the race. Tight racing over the final laps would hamper his ability to gain additional positions on the track and he would go on to finish 10th. Read more
