Talladega, AL(WIAT) Denny Hamlin made his return to the racetrack Sunday, it just didn’t last very long

It wasn’t “The Big one” that did him in, actually the decision for him to leave his car came before the race Hamlin missed the past few weeks with a compressed fracture of a vertebra in his lower back.

The plan was for Hamlin to leave his No. 11 Toyota after the first caution of the race, and that opportunity came when Trevor Bayne blew an engine early allowing the team to switch in Brian Vickers while still remaining on the lead lap.

Before the race started, crew chief Darian Grubb reiterated the plan to Hamlin, who expressed frustration during his time away from the track

at practice Friday Hamlin said of the plan “I just want to feel speed again”.
