Denny Hamlin confirms he never cared about the 24 Hours of Le Mans

24 Hours Le Mans is a prestigious event and race in the world of motorsport. Many NASCAR drivers dream of being part of this great competition and have repeatedly expressed their desire. Denny Hamlin is not one of those In an interview for one of the podcasts, Hamlin emphasized that Le Mans was never on his 'wish list'

From an early age, he had the greatest love for NASCAR and always aspired to build a career on the NASCAR scene. “Never once has it come up on my bucket list of things that I care to do. It’s not what I was born aspiring to do.

I understand that it’s a huge race. I get it. I’ve never been super into Le Mans just simply because I grew up in Virginia on go-karts on a dirt oval, and all I cared about was NASCAR racing. So, no, it’s not on my list.

I would love to attend. I think it’d be cool to attend,” -Hamlin said.

There is no doubt that Denny Hamlin was extremely interested in attending this race as a spectator. In terms of his interest in Le Mans, there are many things that interest him, and it seems that the race itself is not the most important one.

“I’m not going there to watch cars go around the racetrack for 24 hours,” he explained. “I’m going there to see well how a team (is) branding their team apparel. How are they doing with their cars? How does the team look? I’m interested in all those kinds of things,” -Hamlin said.

In his quest to learn everything about Le Mans, Hamlin aims to learn a lot. In the future, there is a high possibility that he will attend this race. “What kind of pre-race parties are there for the event? Anything that we can learn as a race team. Hospitality, how are they treating their sponsors versus what we do?” -Hamlin concluded.
