“Kyle Busch Probably Thought the Same Thing” – Denny Hamlin Gives NASCAR Community Ugly Déjà Vu


Who wouldn’t want Denny Hamlin on their team? However, with the 2023 season coming close, only a contract talk can help retain Hamlin in Joe Gibbs Racing. But Hamlin isn’t worried about that. In fact, with the kind of rapport he has with JGR, the #11 driver feels that the deal is already done. The contract talks are just a formality.

In a recent tweet posted by Fox Sports reporter Bob Pockrass, it is clear that Denny Hamlin is confident about his extension with Joe Gibbs Racing. However, what’s interesting to see is that Hamlin’s confidence did not sit well with Kyle Busch’s fans. But who can blame them? They do have a valid reason for it.

After JGR failed to secure a sponsor for Kyle Busch after M&M’s exit, Rowdy had to part ways with the team and restart his racing career at Richard Childress Racing.

Hamlin is about to get the Kyle Busch treatment

Sounds eerily similar to the exact words Kyle B, JGR and Toyota used last year. We all see how that ended up.

I’m pretty sure that’s what KB said last year at this time. He was a team owner too… 😒

Hamlin better pray FedEx stays with him as a sponsor, because the axe swings swiftly at JGR when the incumbent sponsors leave, and the body count is large.

Yikes. They do not seem happy about it.

And to be fair, it’s not their fault. After witnessing the heartbreaking departure of Kyle Busch from Joe Gibbs Racing, NASCAR fans are disappointed in JGR and its management.

However, this doesn’t mean that the same will be true for Denny Hamlin. If #11 feels that it isn’t difficult to get a deal from JGR, then probably he is right. After all, with his new venture ready to take on the fans, it is more than important for Hamlin to be optimistic!
