Hamlin gives in over penalty fine appeal

"Most of them have been behind me," he said when asked about his sponsors. "I've had one pull out on us, but we have a lot of support. We have our car filled up this weekend and just very grateful for guys like Jim Sealy of US Petroleum for helping us and sticking through it with us."

Take Joey out of the car and fine him. Denny gave him plenty of room and even all announcers agree Joeys' in-experience looking anyway for a win slid up into the 11 I say Joey doesn't finish Martinsville and it won't be the 11 who does it. From inside sources it will happen.
