Race Report: SonomaJune 23, 2014
Hamlin started his No. 11 FedEx Freight Toyota in the 16th position and like his teammates he would battle a race car that was tight through this 10-turn road course. Hamlin would come down pit road and benefited from a timely caution that helped his track position. The FedEx Freight Camry would line up sixth for a restart on lap 75. Hamlin would manage to maintain a position in the top ten despite running on older tires, but contact from behind by the 31 car would send the No. 11 Camry spinning. Hamlin was able to keep the car on the track, but the loss of track position late in the race proved costly and he would go on to finish 26th.
