Joe Gibbs Racing | Mark Martin could fill in for Denny Hamlin

Thu, 28 Mar 2013 16:12:18 -0700

Joe Gibbs Racing announced Thursday, March 28, that driver Mark Martin could replace driver Denny Hamlin (back) while he recovers from a back injury. The team is considering having Martin drive in all five races in the No. 11 car while Hamlin is sidelined. Driver Brian Vickers would pick up Martin's schedule for Michael Waltrip Racing and the No. 55 car that would include races at Texas, Kansas and Richmond. Vickers could also race for Hamlin for four races after next week at Martinsville, where he's scheduled to drive the No. 55 for Martin. Driver Elliott Sadler could also drive for Hamlin the entire time, although that is the least likely option.

Fantasy Tip: Martin and Vickers are not strong fantasy options on a weekly basis, but they might be useful as a No. 4 driver depending on the particular track that week.

Joe Gibbs Racing owner Joe Gibbs said the team plans to reach an extension with driver Kyle Busch well before his contract expires after next season.

However, the team is in no rush to get a deal done before the end of this season.
