DOVER, Del. (AP) - Denny Hamlin turned a lap of 159.299 mph to win the pole Saturday at Dover International Speedway.
Hamlin has been open in his disdain for the 1-mile concrete oval. He has an average finish of 20.5 in 13 career starts at Dover.
Hamlin turned to a sports psychologist for advice and was told he needed to ``fall in love with the track.''
Hamlin, third in the points standings, had to love this effort.
Chase for the Sprint Cup championship drivers Clint Bowyer and Martin Truex Jr. were second and third. Points leader Jimmie Johnson starts 11th.
