Hamlin Conversation – Daytona

What is your mindset going into this weekend at Daytona?

“We are going there with a lot of confidence knowing that we don’t really have to do anything special because we’re already locked into the playoffs. It’s a free race for us, so it’s an opportunity to go out and try to get a few more playoff points. I don’t see any reason why we should feel any pressure other than to go out there and try to win the race. I feel like this race is usually chaotic being the last race for guys to make the playoffs. I would say there’s going to be no shortage of wrecks and a lot of things will happen. For me, I’ve just got to be patient because I know I’ve got to make it to the checkered flag if I’m going to win the race.”

FedEx Cares / Accion Opportunity Fund: Hamlin’s FedEx Toyota Camry TRD will feature a special paint scheme this weekend to recognize FedEx Cares and the Accion Opportunity Fund. Together, FedEx Cares, e-commerce consultancy 37 Oaks and the Accion Opportunity Fund are providing entrepreneurs hands-on learning and a platform to ship their products across the country. Specifically, FedEx Cares is committed to strengthening minority- and women-owned businesses globally with the tools they need to succeed. FedEx is donating an additional $1 million to the Accion Opportunity Fund to help diverse small business owners in their transition to e-commerce as digital shopping becomes more common.

Back of the Yards Coffee: Hamlin recently visited Back of the Yards Coffee – a local coffee shop in Chicago and member of the FedEx E-Commerce Lab – to learn more about how FedEx and the Accion Opportunity Fund are working together to help small businesses. During their meeting, Hamlin surprised one of the shop’s co-owners, Jesse Iniguez, by inviting him and his family, as well as co-owner Mayra Hernandez to this weekend’s race in Daytona where the Back of the Yards Coffee logo will be featured on the TV panel of the No. 11 FedEx Cares Camry TRD.
