The driver of the No. 11 Toyota could breathe easier after his Joe Gibbs Racing team corrected a major problem Saturday.
Hamlin said his team discovered broken parts in his car that caused poor handling.
“That rests my mind quite a bit, because my car felt exactly like my teammates’; same speed as teammates on Friday,” Hamlin said. “Saturday, the car was undrivable. We found out what was broken. I’m happy about that.”
