This is a race that seems too easy to predict. Denny Hamlin appears to be such an easy choice.
Joe Gibbs Racing is on a nice roll. Hamlin leads the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series with five wins in 2010. This is a flat track of one-mile or less which is the type this driver runs well on. There are so many reasons to pick the #11 Toyota.
Hamlin has one win, three top-5s and six top-10s in eight total starts on the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
All of that makes predicting this race too easy which means something is likely to go wrong. However, I am still going to stick with the obvious and take Hamlin to win the Lenox Industrial Tools 301.
Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch and Jeff Burton will join Hamlin in the top-5 on Sunday.
