Hamlin signs multi-year NASCAR contract extension with Joe Gibbs Racing
Denny Hamlin, a 42-year-old NASCAR driver, has signed a contract extension with Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) and will continue to race for the team for years to come. Hamlin has been with JGR since his debut in the top level of racing in 2005 and has won 50 races in his career. The negotiations for his contract extension were delayed due to his involvement as a co-owner of rival team 23XI Racing, but the technical alliance between 23XI and JGR will remain unchanged. Hamlin has reached the Championship 4 playoffs multiple times but has never won a Cup title. He expressed his excitement about focusing on chasing the championship now that the contract extension has been announced.
