Denny Hamlin won the Daytona 500 in memorable fashion. It is the first Dayton win for Hamlin, and the first for his sponsor, Toyota. Hamlin and his Toyota teammates worked together for the win, which was a part of the plan.
“The last thing I wanted to do was wreck off turn four with my Toyota teammates and none of us win,” Hamlin said. “We had talked about a plan overnight to just work together, work together and I’ve never seen it executed so flawlessly.”
