Southern 500 Preview - Denny in Darlington:

Denny Hamlin and the #11 team will travel to Darlington, S.C., for Sunday night's historic Southern 500 at the iconic 1.33-mile, egg-shaped Darlington Raceway oval. Hamlin is the 2010 winner of the prestigious event at one of NASCAR's first speedways. Hamlin enters the weekend on a streak of six-straight top-10 finishes following a ninth-place result on Sunday in Michigan. The string of top-10s started at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in July and could continue this weekend at Darlington. Hamlin owns a tidy 6.5 average finish at the "Lady in Black," scoring eight top-10 finishes in 10 career races at Darlington. He led 57 laps in the race one year ago and finished third to teammate Carl Edwards. Hamlin will drive a special #11 Sport Clips Toyota paint scheme this weekend, honoring NASCAR Hall of Famer Darrell Waltrip.
