Make the call: When and where does Denny Hamlin finally win a 2021 race?
KEN’S CALL: He’s been the man to beat at “plate races” the past couple of years, so let’s say next week at Talladega.
DEAN’S DIRT: He wins the spring Darlington race next month. Happy Mother’s Day!
Chase looked strong late at Martinsville, does that mean he’s out of that mini-funk?
KEN’S CALL: Never led a lap, you might note. But maybe he’ll carry that late-race momentum into another short-track race this weekend.
DEAN’S DIRT: I ain’t buying it yet. He had a sixth-place car most of the day and never really challenged for the lead.
