Dollar General on Board with Denny Hamlin at Homestead-Miami Speedway

This weekend Dollar General will serve as primary sponsor of the No. 32, piloted by Denny Hamlin.

Denny Hamlin on Homestead-Miami Speedway

"Homestead is a unique track because it has its own combination of banking. It's nice as a driver because you have the option to choose which groove to run based on how your car is handling. If your car doesn't seem to handle well running low, you can move around and try a line that works better for you. Fuel-mileage often plays a part in the Homestead race, so that's something you have to really pay attention to as well. I've had a great time working with the guys at Braun Racing this year and my hope is to take this 32 team and sponsor, Dollar General, to victory lane this weekend. It would be a great way to end the season!"
