Denny Hamlin went out last but ended up first Friday night. Hamlin was the last driver to take a lap in the final of three rounds of knockout qualifying; however, he put down the fastest lap and secured the pole for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup series FedEx 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Hamlin’s lap of 22.483 seconds translated to 160.121 miles per hour giving the Joe Gibbs Racing driver his first pole of the season and the 21st of his career.  It is Hamlin’s third pole at Dover and his first since the fall of 2013.

“Well, we still haven’t won here, but we’ve been more competitive for sure,” Hamlin said. MORE>>>
