The legacy of the No. 11 in NASCAR will get a few more years with the name “Hamlin” as the 3-time Daytona 500 winner and longtime partner FedEx have reached multi-year extensions with Joe Gibbs Racing.

The news was confirmed via press release on Monday.

“The relationship between FedEx and our organization has been a tremendous success story in so many ways and we’re excited that FedEx will continue to support Denny and our No. 11 team,” said Joe Gibbs, owner of Joe Gibbs Racing. “Denny continues to perform at the top of our sport and our goal is to continue to position him and FedEx to win a championship.”

The entirety of Hamlin’s Cup Series career has been with one number, and one team, an impressive streak that is not often seen in NASCAR today. With 542 starts, 44 wins, and 280 top-10 finishes, Hamlin has scored a combined 13 wins in the last two seasons, while finishing fourth in the standings in both seasons.

“I’m so fortunate to have the support of FedEx behind me throughout my career,” Hamlin said. “I take a tremendous amount of pride in having the opportunity to represent them not only on the racetrack but also in the community through the countless programs they have supported for the better part of these past two decades.”

FedEx has been the anchor partner for Hamlin and the introduction of the No. 11 at Joe Gibbs Racing since 2005. The sponsor/driver relationship is one of the longest-running in the Cup Series.

“FedEx has remained the primary sponsor of the #11 car and Denny Hamlin for over fifteen years, and together we have celebrated many successes on and off the track including 3 Daytona 500 wins,” said Jenny Robertson, Senior Vice President, FedEx Integrated and Marketing Communications. “The FedEx Racing relationship with Joe Gibbs Racing has continued to provide meaningful opportunities for us to engage our customers, team members, and fans, as well as make a positive impact in the community. We are honored to extend this relationship with the Joe Gibbs Racing organization for multiple years and continue the drive for a NASCAR Cup Series championship.”

Hamlin will have one of his busiest seasons yet, serving as a driver for Joe Gibbs Racing, and as a co-owner with 23XI Racing with driver Bubba Wallace taking the wheel of the No. 23 Toyota. The team will receive support from Joe Gibbs Racing and TRD.

The exact terms of the multi-year agreement were not released at the time of this publishing.
