Hamlin must seize oppurtunity at Martinsville

If Denny Hamlin is to stop Jimmie Johnson from capturing his fifth straight NASCAR Sprint Cup this weeks event at Martinsville will be a must for the driver of the #11 FedEx Toyota.

Hamlin is currently 36 points back of Johnson and unlike Johnson he’s yet to punch his way into victory lane since the Chase started. While Hamlin has been consistent with four of his five Chase starts resulting in Top-10’s and the other being a 12th place run at Kansas he’s had to watch Johnson do the 1, 2, 3, 3 in the series last four events.
