Denny Hamlin gets Xfinity win at Charlotte
Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C., was the Hisense 300, and after the race, a Hisense-sponsored car drove into victory lane as the race winner. Denny Hamlin climbed into the No. 18 Hisense Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing for his first Xfinity race of 2016 and led a race-high 76 laps on his way to the win.
“I think as far as the sponsor thing, it’s huge,” Hamlin said. “This is their title weekend; they’re ea great partner of myself and JGR over the last few years,” Hamlin said. “I had a lot of success with them last year in the Xfinity Series. They’ve really stepped up their activation with their sponsorship and really have done a great job of supporting Joe Gibbs Racing, and really, the results are showing on the race track. I thank them for that, and obviously, they do a lot for the sport, as a whole, by sponsoring the weekend, so it’s great to win the title sponsor race, obviously, but to do it in that type of fashion is always a little extra feather in the cap.”
