Denny Hamlin on Steve Phelps: I have the utmost respect for him and what he is as a leader

Hamlin noted many positive qualities in Phelps, who has shown his dedication and passion for NASCAR from day one of his tenure.

He is a man who shows respect to everyone, cares about the drivers, and wants to be informed about what is happening. When you are the leader of NASCAR, you have a huge responsibility. You are often the target of criticism and many want to overthrow you.

Phelps has an answer for everything though. His primary goal is not to react to criticism and devote himself to his work. For now, many believe that he perfectly does his job. “I have the utmost respect for him and what he is as a leader.

He’s one of the first guys that will wish you luck on the grid on every Sunday, walking in nearly every car and showing his presence and showing his leadership. And then probably as soon as he gets done with the grid, having to go and have tough meetings with executives on our TV deals or tracks or something. The guy works as hard as anyone in the industry. We’re all very lucky to have him”.
