Hamlin to Backup Car in Practice

Denny Hamlin will go to a backup car after an accident in Friday’s opening practice session for the Bank of America ROVAL 400 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway road course.

Hamlin backed into the tire barrier coming out of Turn 5. He was 15th fastest at the time of the incident.

Last year, Hamlin also went to a backup car for this race after hitting the wall coming out of Turn 12 in qualifying.

Parker Kligerman will also go to a backup after hitting the wall in Turn 1.
