LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - Denny Hamlin 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.''
But speaking before qualifying at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Friday, Hamlin said he just meant he was looking ahead, not backward.
``I said it as basically another way to say, `We'll get them next week,''' Hamlin said.
Hamlin heads into the race Sunday in fourth place in the NASCAR standings, 15 points behind leader Brad Keselowski.
