Denny Hamlin Wins Race One Week After Telling Redskins Fandom Story, Meeting Griffin III

Good luck today to Washington Redskins fan and Joe Gibbs Racing’s own Denny Hamlin today as he looks to advance to the four-drive Championship round in NASCAR’s new playoff format.

Currently second in the standings, for Hamlin to have a guaranteed spot in next round, he needs to achieve one of the following:

–Finish 11th or better

–Finish 12th and have led at least one lap

— Finish 13th and led the most laps

Hamlin, a native of Virginia, has been a lifelong Redskins fan.

“I think there’s a picture of me in a Redskins helmet and a Redskins jersey, probably when I was about three years old,” Hamlin said during one of his TV interviews after the first Richmond race of the season. “And my mom was taking a bunch of pictures and I was outside and I was kicking the ball around. I wanted to be the next great kicker.”

Gibbs has a second driver, Matt Kenseth, also in contention.

If either Hamlin or Kenseth can obtain the Sprint Cup Championship, it would mark the fourth time a Gibbs driver has taken home the hardware.
