Denny Hamlin, Driver of the No. 11 Mavis Toyota Camry TRD

What do you expect going to Richmond this weekend?

“I’m excited for Michigan. Chris (Gabehart) has been telling me for weeks that we’re finally going to be able to get a win at Michigan together. We’ve had the fastest car, one of the most dominant cars there for the last handful of years. Typically, any time we are good at a track, we can tweak it a little bit to get better but the competition is also going to get better. We better be on our game, but I like our chances. It has historically been a good track for me and Chris.”
