Race Report: KentuckyJune 30, 2014
Hamlin started his No. 11 FedEx Office Toyota in the fourth position and moved into third over the course of the opening laps, but a blown right front tire sent him hard into the outside wall on lap 29 ending his night early. It was a disappointing finish for Hamlin and the No. 11 team who had a proven fast car all weekend and was just a couple laps away from would have been a competition caution following an afternoon rain storm that washed all the rubber from the track. The car would be beyond repair and Hamlin was scored in 42nd.
