Denny Hamlin has FedEx as a sponsor for his No. 11 Toyota Camry and he is absolutely delivering for his team. Hamlin has now swept the opening two Stages of Saturday’s NASCAR Cup Series Drydene 311 at Dover International Speedway.

Hamlin has been at the front of the field for an impressive 106 laps so far, and he doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.

Martin Truex Jr., Hamlin’s Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, finished Stage 2 in second, while Clint Bowyer, Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski rounded out the top-five in Stage 2.

Kevin Harvick has rallied after issues on pit road to finish sixth in Stage 2.

Jimmie Johnson is lucky to still be in the race, as he narrowly avoided Ryan Preece, who slid from the high lane down to the inside at a near crawl in an effort to pit his car.

Johnson avoided the No. 37 car by mere inches.
