Denny Hamlin planning late model races in 2021

Three-time Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin says he wants to run more short track events this year, culminating with the Snowball Derby in December.

Hamlin, who raced Late Models before moving to NASCAR and Joe Gibbs Racing, knows the challenge he faces.

“I know personally I’m going to go and start racing more Late Models (in 2021),” he told NBC Sports.…”I’m going to spend the year kind of working through that process and trying to figure out what techniques I need to have and learning and getting better. That way I can continue to give back to the short-track community.”
