Meet #NASCAR Sprint Car Chase Driver
Denny Hamlin

Joe Gibbs Racing, No. 11 Toyota

Meet #NASCAR Sprint Car Chase Driver  Denny Hamlin

Outlook: A torn ACL isn't a great omen, but three consecutive top-five finishes before the injury and a sixth-place finish in his first race with the injury certainly bode well for a driver in arguably the top-performing team, Joe Gibbs Racing.

Chase history: Eight previous appearances, best finish of second in 2010.

Best Chase track: Martinsville. Hamlin likes driving near home, with five wins (including the March race) and three poles at the Virginia track.

Worst Chase track: Chicagoland Speedway. Hamlin's average finish there is 18.9 in nine visits, including one engine failure and zero wins.
