CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Denny Hamlin said he would win at New Hampshire and did just that, scoring an important victory in his quest to win his first NASCAR championship. For his next act, Hamlin must prove he's a legitimate title contender by overcoming his disdain for Dover. Hamlin openly despises the 1-mile concrete oval so much that every armchair psychologist out there is convinced his problems at Dover are self-inflicted. He points to his past performances there - he's got an average finish of 20.5 in 13 career starts - as proof the place gives him fits.
