Denny Hamlin — and sponsor FedEx — will continue with Joe Gibbs Racing for years to come.
JGR announced extensions for both driver and sponsor Monday.
The length of the extensions were not disclosed, but are multi-year deals.
“The relationship between FedEx and our organization has been a tremendous success story in so many ways and we’re excited that FedEx will continue to support Denny and our No. 11 team,” team owner Joe Gibbs said in a release. “Denny continues to perform at the top of our sport and our goal is to continue to position him and FedEx to win a championship.”
“I’m so fortunate to have the support of FedEx behind me throughout my career,” Hamlin said in the release. “I take a tremendous amount of pride in having the opportunity to represent them not only on the racetrack, but also in the community through the countless programs they have supported for the better part of these past two decades.”
The Hamlin-FedEx partnership has persisted throughout the entirety of Hamlin’s NASCAR Cup Series career, beginning with his part-time debut in the series in 2005.
Hamlin is coming off a seven-win 2020 season, finishing fourth in points with 18 top fives and 21 top 10s.
