Hamlin Got a Clock!
“You got a clock, baby, you got a clock!” shouted Denny Hamlin’s crew chief as he crossed the finish line. Are you kidding me? Screw the clock, Hamlin got a win in the Goody’s Cool Orange 500 and broke both this season’s dry spell and bad luck. For those of you who don’t know, every winner of the Goody’s Cool Orange 500 receives a grandfather clock. Hamlin was able to secure the win and the clock, when crew decided on the last caution to take only fuel and no tires. This was the break he needed after coming out of the pits in front of Gordon. He and Gordon charged to the front where he would stay for the win. Gordon was a strong contender all race but was unable to slip and slide his way past this year’s winner Denny Hamlin.
Look for my opinion in an upcoming article I’ll be writing about the Martinsville drama that took place. Roush allegations on stolen parts, new drivers and more… Oh and check out the points standings on the right sidebar.. very interesting!
