LOUDON, New Hampshire—
said he never intended to guarantee a victory this weekend in the NASCAR
race in New Hampshire.
After running out of fuel to finish 16th in the Sprint Cup opener at Chicago last week, Hamlin tweeted, "This is week 1 of 10. We will win next week."

Hamlin heads into the race Sunday in fourth place in the NASCAR standings, 15 points behind leader Brad Keselowski
