Toyota NASCAR and ARCA drivers competed at Talladega Superspeedway over the weekend, while Toyota-powered cars won all six nights of the USAC Indiana Midget Week.
Denny Hamlin (fourth) and Erik Jones (fifth) recorded top-five finishes in the rain-delayed NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) race at Talladega Superspeedway on Monday won by Ryan Blaney. Hamlin’s finish marked his seventh top-five in 13 NCS races this season, while Jones earned his career-best Talladega NCS result.
“We had a good Camry, we just ran out of fuel there at the end and had to pit with just a few laps to go,” said Hamlin, following the race. “But luckily, the caution came out and some other guys in front of us ran out of gas so we were able to get a few more positions and race to the finish. Overall, it was a good day and our car had good speed. Got into the wall there early in the race and we were able to rebound from that.”Denny Hamlin
