|Joe Gibbs Racing Drivers Look to Continue Hot Streak -- LIVE NASCAR COVERAGE SUNDAY ON FM 95
|CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch, winners of five of the last seven Sprint Cup Series points races, believe they can continue Joe Gibbs Racing's recent dominance and win the Coca-Cola 600.
Doing so is going to require beating four-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson, who is pretty darn good at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Johnson has long considered this suburban Charlotte track, located just minutes away from Hendrick Motorsports' home base, his own personal playground. He's got six career victories here, four of them in NASCAR's longest race of the season.
