Denny Hamlin would have a record setting day for qualifying in the 50th Annual Drydene 400 at Dover International Speedway. Hamlin making his 500th career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race start, would tour the 1 mile concrete oval with a lap of 166.984 mph (21.559-seconds) in the No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota. Hamlins effort was 1 mph faster than Chase Elliott May qualifying speed of (165.960 mph/21.692-seconds)

“This is probably as optimistic as I’ve ever been going into a Dover race simply because we’ve really devoted a lot of time to improving my technique around here,’’ said Hamlin, adding, “It just seems like in practice I’m really comfortable in the car and that’s not my usual MO here.’’
