Like this here, we sneak y'all into the media center listen in on the post race media encounter, but often includes humorous episodes, and this one certainly does include that too. So courtesy of NASCAR media and Tony International Speedway. Here's part one of the media session with Daytona five hundred winner. Denny Hamlin and team owner Joe Gibbs on race line radio. Autoweek? This is a question for both of you guys cows in here earlier and said that he was trying to coordinate the. The restart plan the restart before and that you guys have declined. And then he said that once you guys got the lead that you guys were more willing to try to negotiate a plan with the eighteen what went into both of those restarts in the planning back and forth with them. He I think the first one I I'm not sure if it was a green white checkered or not, but it was inside five to go. And I thought that you know, any deals and stuff like that. Or original deal was inside tend to go after that you kind of raced. We kept going we had I think restart with seven or eight to go we worked together and they asked. I think they asked and we said let's just race it out. And that was with the second to last restart. We we decided we wanted to kind of race it out being on the front row kind of liked. And I was hoping he was gonna take the line that he chose and he did. So that put us in a good position. You know, everything that I've all experience I've had on new line. I wanted to be in and it was going to be a fifty fifty shot whether he put us in that line or not. And when he did we got the lead the caution came out. And then we were just go ahead and stay in racing. Like, we were I knew the top line was the line. I was going to choose and they actually came over. I think they came to my spotter and said, hey, do you wanna do do you wanna drop down in front of us? We're open to do that. And when I saw him in the twenty two lined up. I was like absolutely sure definitely we'll do that. So I thought that was the best move for us. But it's still gave him a great opportunity to win. Because you've got a great run on us on the backstretch, and we had to block it. And so I think that he probably knew the same thing that I did is that that bottom lane deteriorates really quick at the end of these Ray. I've been on the bottom lane three or four times here on the with on a green white. Checkered lost race every time because it was just not the place to be. So I thought that he was actually pretty smart and thinking that hey, I drop down in front of him that puts him in the position to go on offense against me. So if he's on the inside of me, and I'm right there on his door. There's no offense of play that he can make. He was actually he did the made the right move in my opinion to to let us do that. So he can have the twenty two and make a run. Jacob Zuma feet support magazine a couple here. I for coach you were in here earlier in the weekend talking about it about what it might mean if this resort. This is storybook though. I mean, what what what emotions what's going through your mind after this? I dislike the retrace for minute. What happened? And I was is you know, it's the most emotional and the biggest win ever had in my life and anything Jaydee built I raised team was the guy that ran day-to-day operations for twenty seven years. He invested his occupational hif- in our race team. And is a part of that he went up to purchase some late models stuff from Denny and struck up a relationship with Dinnie put him in a test. Put him in a truck put him in a xfinity car at Darlington. And finally said we need to sign this guy. And so. That started the relationship and everything and thank you for that. I check by the way, I got set a rims for my truck and a plasma TV as of course, I was in high was. I was. Was a hit. That is the truth. He had nothing. And three years later. He bought a house next to me. It was twice as big as my house. So it tells you getting wrong into everything, but I wanted to retrace that and then to say J D's favorite number was eleven when he raised us what he had then he's number eleven Dinnie put JD over the door post on that car. And they have that take place everything that took place the night. Everybody knows we've been to Daytona twenty seven times we had won twice before. And so, you know, you're thinking about things, and I guess everybody could say well that just happened. I don't believe that just happened. Honestly believe it was I think the Lord look down on us. And I know JD at everybody in my family was emotional call home to Pat, and I call sponsors that were emotional too. It was just a unbelie. Believable night. Unbelievable crowd. The whole thing was just a special memory for me. And it's what on their forget. And it was the most important night of my occupational life day Jona five hundred winner. Denny hamlin. And right there T motor coach Joe Gibbs, obviously direct for the Daytona media center right after the race important one of their sound after winning the sixty first winning of Daytona five hundred.

Let's see. Oh, yeah. We had a somebody just sort of takes anonymously wondering about what I thought of new aero engine rules in Atlanta, as I said in the news, I think is kind of too early that was was looking at the Twitter traffic beforehand, and and our friend and colleague, Dave moody, with his own with Marin radio certainly and with his own Sirius XM NASCAR radio show says it's a little bit early to be judging after when rates you can't use Daytona because as a nominally and that was the last plate race, blah, blah, blah. But I mean, you know, let's let's talk about this after we've had some now going to Las Vegas, which is kind of different after we've had a couple of the one on the half mile, maybe one or two months down the road. Demi can actually find out if a new aero rules new engine rules that they have this year and restrictor plates for Talladega or Daytona anymore. Whether or not the racing is any better. I mean, I didn't see anything onto wordly different about the racing in Atlanta. But again, I think it's too soon. But you know, gimme your comments race line radio dot CA. If you think the rules are going to work eight maybe early. You know, what if you want to offer something up? That's fine. I just think to be accurate. I think we just gotta need to wait a little while and pass judgment at that time. In Floyd sends another note in here.

You have to cheat to win than what the heck in the business of racing or any other sport for I think it's time that the rule breakers punished right away at the moment of getting a slap on the wrist. I don't care if you have a pedigree back to the beginnings of NASCAR or just starting out. If you really have to cheat on racing then quit when the rule breakers care more for the prestige of winning at all costs it costs NASCAR Nedeli good potential sponsors teams. But they lose good and loyal fans for many. You're standing who. I am one of since at least nineteen seventy my rant is finished. Although I don't suppose it makes a lot of sense.

I know you were trying on TV to put it into words. The Gibbs family this win. I mean what what is it mean sitting here right now? And and the second part, what is it with you in new crew cheese? Bring him to victory lane in this race. Yeah. I for one race. He can just hop on the back carry it in here. I'm gonna need him the rest of the thirty other ones. You know, he's I'll say that kind of answer last question. I but Chris prepared. I mean almost information overload. I have to temper him. Sometimes like, okay. Okay. I got it. I got it. I don't need motivation. I don't need it. You know? Thank you for the information of all the things that I need. But he's just so prepared and he'd never leaves. He just in the in a couple of months worked with him. He's just so meticulous about every detail. And giving me all the information that I need to go out there and succeed. And so, you know, that's that's the kind of guy that you look for that can carry a long way, and you know, as far as the gives families just great to hearing that you know, Joe and everything that he is accomplished in his life. I mean, he's NFL hall of Famer, and, you know, Super Bowl champion and saying that this is the biggest one of his career is just a special, and it's just special for me to be. To deliver that to him, and especially no he would been happy with anyone of his car's going out there and get victory. But obviously one with his son's name on the door and numbers probably more special. We'll go to Kelly Jerry and up to the press box Kelly Crowe ratio dot com. Denny I did I hear correctly over the radio that now that you're two time Daytona five hundred hundred Michael Waltrip can kiss your please explain that. That's the only thing he over held them over my head constantly. I've got to. Yeah. It's it's we're such good friends in as you know, we play golf all the time. Everyone knows that. But yeah, you know, he was always, you know, everyone. We would always go these golf tournaments than introduced me and introduced him. And he's like, you know, I got two of those to think twice as many as you have so not anymore. Didn't eat for your win tonight versus your win years ago, which one's better or can be king. You wait that yet which party would be better be better. I I'm taking this one in a little bit more. I was just so you know, everything was just so crazy at the end of the two thousand sixteen race with the final lap. How played out I was just I couldn't believe anything that happened as it was in all the whole time. This one actually through the red flags and everything I was kind of taking everything in I fell asleep Twi. Ice and under couple of the red flags because I just I was just relax. I knew it. I needed to do. I wasn't going to venture off from that. So I wasn't nervous about. Hey, what if this happens? What if that happens? I knew in my head what I needed to do. And if if the race worked out great force, we're gonna win if it didn't. I'd put put forth all the homework done all the work to figure out where I needed to be. And I knew where I needed to be in circumstances was going to dictate whether we want or not. So I was pretty relaxed a whole time really taking all this in Peter King CBS News Radio this for Denny back here. And those last ten laps were like. Literally, I was gonna say not like raising. It was more like survivor out there. So totally tell me what was like to be able to avoid those three huge crashes. And I think at last count we counted thirty six different cars were involved total with all three of them. Yeah. I mean, I was thinking, you know, actually looking at the time on the dash. It was five forty something. And I'm like in looking at the scoreboard. And I'm like, wow. At six fifteen we're gonna know the end of this race. Now, look, and I'm like six thirty. We're going to no end this race sitting under red flag. And that's just see the ticker just go like six fifty. We're going to really know who won this race. So it was it was crazy. How long it took an I've been so many different superspeedway races. I've seen five laps ticking our before, but the track was just an absolute mess, especially in three and four with all the crashes. We're just were fortunate to really be. A front at the right time to avoid those. I mean, we were really one row in front of all the the mayhem the entire time at the end. So that that's a credit to the pit call. We made at the end to get our track physician back from the kind of fuel ING issue that we had mid race. But it's just I mean, sometimes you you're fortunate to be in the position you are. We were pretty lucky to be up front at the right time. Mike massey. Fresh com to properly celebrate a win. Like this. Like, how do you properly? Celebrate win like this. When you have that champions breakfast at like seven thirty tomorrow morning, you stay up all night or each if you hours asleep. Yeah. I mean, I don't know I've been under the weather a little bit over the last couple of weeks. So I probably won't get too crazy. Honestly, I both. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. May have believed that for that. But it's it's been a tough couple of weeks, you know, just being sick a little bit. I I'm not going to get to crazy. But I want the team guys. A really enjoy it. I mean, there's a lot of new faces a lot of same faces that we've had that were here two thousand sixteen that got to enjoy it. Not just never will. Forget celebrate with them and seeing how excited they were after winning Daytona five hundred because you just honestly, you never know. Right. I mean, you're pit crew guy. You could be moved to another team. You'll know if you you're if you don't will you ever win it again, I encourage all those guys to really live in the moment and enjoy it because you know, I definitely you know, that was some fondest memories. From the first one was spending it with a team guys. Dominic Nate and then up to the press box Dominicana going with erasing experts to your left. So now you've tied Dilbert. Now, the twenty point excuse me, twenty four th all time on the winless is that something you take a look at it. Just kind of comment with them. Instead. Wow. He's so much better than I am. Yeah. I don't know. That's amazing. Never really thought of it that way those guys that. I mean, I I lies growing up. I mean, I shouldn't even be mentioned the Saint preface Dale Jarrett. So it's it's crazy that you know, we we have the stats that we do. I'd never would've thought you know, in the fourteen year career that I'd have one Daytona five hundred champion. I wouldn't have dreamed. I'd have ten wins wouldn't have dreamed anything that that's been accomplished. But certainly, you know won't take it for granted. Upstairs to the press box. Jim motorsport dot com for Denny in coach to if he'd like to address it when you have such a tragic event such as JD's passing happing so close and started season. I just. When it could produce heavy hearts and so forth. How did you feel the team approach dealing with that coming down to Daytona? It almost seemed like you guys had a very calming effect. The entire speaks. Well, I think for me this really appreciate everybody. Chris said it everybody Joe Gibbs racing like a huge family. And I I want to say that that NASCAR itself if you think about everybody in that winter circle everybody from NASCAR Jim France. And everybody all the way down. I appreciate that so much, and so this really thrilled to be a part of sport like this. I know we've gone through tough times here, recently, I'm gonna tell you I swear I think our best years in front of us. And we got so many people working so hard right now in our sport. So I'm fired up about it. And this is the only thing me, and my family wanna do we don't have anything else. And that pretty much tells you what the head space is like, and why you like to see good guys. Like coach, Joe Gibbs and good guys. Like Hamlin win the big one and win the Daytona five hundred just some of their comments Joe Gibbs and Hamlin from Daytona media center directly after Denny's. Second career Daytona five hundred win there. It is race line radio. We thank certainly NASCAR media and the Daytona Motor Speedway media folks for allowing us to use that audio and they set it up, and he's you probably heard there in the in some of the prompting, you know, it's kind of cool that the they've got a media center, but they also have a connection up to the press box. We're all the media work. So you don't have to go downstairs, but a lot of questions and a lot of good poignant wants some some good moments. Waltrip can hold it over Denny Hamlin's head that he's got a tuna Daytona five hundred wins two of them. And now Denney has to them as well.
