Denny Hamlin and his goals

Denny Hamlin wants to go all the way next season. NASCAR fans are aware of Hamlin's qualities, but his ambitions have always been the highest. He is ready to understand where he and the team make the biggest mistakes and to change that in the coming period.

Hamlin has never been shy about praising a dominating team. That being said, Denny praised Ryan Blaney and his dominance this season. “You gotta figure it out, there’s different ways you can work on it. I look in general, Truex was somewhat up front, we [JGR] just weren’t that strong.

Generally speaking. Even C Bell didn’t qualify his normal, in the race he was okay. I was watching plenty of SMT and the 12 was still stronger, much stronger than he was in the long run so it was going to be difficult. It’s interesting, we knew this [is] the format, we’ve always known this [is the] format, but this is the first year that, in my opinion, the Ben Rhodes [team] and the Ryan Blaney’s [team] were, they just got good in the last couple of races and won the championship.

And when I say good, they got great. They didn’t get good, they got great. And won. So, can you just hang around and get past some of these summer races and whatever and just win it in the end? It appears that [methodology] works”.
