Denny Hamlin knows championship berth pressure will be on at Phoenix (video)


Denny Hamlin finished ninth during Sunday’s rain-shortened AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Because he hasn’t qualified for the season-ending championship race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Hamlin knows the pressure will be on him at next Sunday’s final championship qualifying race at Phoenix.

Hamlin enters Phoenix two points below the Chase cutoff line.
