Hamlin's Team Captures Pit Crew Challenge Win in Charlotte: Denny Hamlin's #11 over-the-wall crew claimed the weekly Checkers/Rally's Double Drive-Thru Challenge win in Sunday's Memorial Day weekend classic at Lowe's Motor Speedway. This is the team's third win and moves them in to second-place in the season-long standings. The FedEx team, which spent 423.882 seconds on pit road, helped its driver to a ninth-place finish in the Coca-Cola 600. Checkers/Rally's will award an $11,000 prize to Hamlin's over-the-wall team for winning the weekly competition. An additional $111,150 will be presented to the pit crew with the most Double Drive-Thru Challenge wins at the completion of the 36-race Nextel Cup schedule. The #11 Joe Gibbs Racing crew includes: Scott Wood (jackman), Scott Merritt (front-tire carrier), Dennis Terry (front-tire changer), Heath Cherry (rear-tire carrier), Jonathan Sherman (rear-tire changer), Brad Rothlin (gasman), John Eicher (catch can) and Bobby Christensen (eighth-man). The pit crew coordinator is Paul Alepa. Twelve races into the Nextel Cup season, Mark Martin's/Regan Smith's #01 pit crew leads the Checkers/Rally's Double Drive-Thru Challenge standings with four wins. To win the Checkers/Rally's Double Drive-Thru Challenge, teams are required to finish on the lead lap while spending the least amount of time on pit road. Checkers/Rally's is in its third season as title sponsor for the pit crew challenge. Checkers/Rally's is the Official Burger and Drive-Thru Restaurant of NASCAR, more info at checkers.com.
