Hamlin comes from back twice, finishes 10th

Mar 19, 2017

Denny Hamlin was forced to come from the back of the field twice in the Camping World 500 at Phoenix International Raceway after suffering two tire punctures.
Hamlin qualified 19th, but he had to drop to the back of the pack to start the race after changing tires. He ran over a screw in time trials. He made his way into the top 10 before suffering a cut tire in the race at about the 2/3rds distance and had to pick his way forward again. Hamlin passed more cars than anyone in the field and salvaged a solid result.
