Daytona Recap: Denny Hamlin finished sixth in Sunday’s rain-shortened NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway, avoiding major damage in a pair of multi-car incidents in the 112-lap event won by Aric Almirola, to record his third-straight top-six finish in points-paying restrictor plate races in the #11 FedEx Ground Toyota. Sunday’s race was postponed from Saturday due to rain, and with more inclement weather expected, Hamlin charged through the field from his 37th-place starting position at the drop of the green flag. He was up to 24th by the race’s first caution on Lap 7 and inside the top-20 when contact at the front of the field triggered a 16-car incident on the frontstretch at Lap 21. After a stretch of green flag racing through the event’s midpoint, that saw Hamlin challenge for the lead, another multi-car wreck -- again at the front of the field -- involved 26 cars, including the #11 machine. Hamlin spun through the grass in Turn 3 and fortunately, the damage was not severe. After a trip to pit road for repairs, he returned to the race in the top-10 for the restart. However, more rain came eight laps later, forcing NASCAR to call the race after 112 of the scheduled 160 laps.

New Hampshire Preview: The Series heads to New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) for Sunday’s 301-lap event on the flat, one-mile oval. Hamlin is a two-time New Hampshire winner, taking the checkered flag in the July 2007 event and the Chase race at the track in 2012. Hamlin has 10 top-10 finishes in 16 career New Hampshire starts, and his 9.0 average finishing position at the track is tied with Jeff Gordon for best among active drivers. Hamlin has a driver rating of 102.9 at NHMS, fourth-best in the Series, behind Tony Stewart, Gordon and Jimmie Johnson. He has led a total of 417 laps at the track and finished 12th at the “Magic Mile” in the Series’ most recent trip last September.
