MARTINSVILLE, Va.—  Matt Kenseth will rely on the Martinsville mastery of Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch as he tries to regain the series lead.

In recent years, Hamlin arguably is second only to Johnson in terms of his prowess on the paper-clip-shaped speedway. Hamlin has four wins at Martinsville and a career average finish of 8.2. Accordingly, it’s had to blame Kenseth for seeking advice.

“This spring, Denny helped me a lot, and I think Kyle helped me a lot, too,” Kenseth said. “Especially Denny, because he was out of the car (because of a fractured vertebra), and Mark (Martin) was in it, so we were down there parked next to each other, and I got to talk to him a lot and pick his brain a lot and look at a lot of stuff.”

“You try to use all the tools you have, and certainly Denny and Kyle run pretty good everywhere, but especially here is one of Denny’s best places, so I certainly try to pay as much attention as I can.”
