Denny Hamlin eager for fans to return to the sport

Chesterfield Virginia native and Driver of the Joe Gibbs Fed Ex Toyota, in NASCARs' Cup Series, Denny Hamlin, shared his thoughts on not having fans in the stands ahead of tonight's race in Martinsville. At this point he said that he'd even welcome "boo's" during driver introductions if they were coming from race fans sitting in the stands. He went on to say that he felt just as NASCAR was a leader in getting back to competition,he suspects they'll also lead the way in getting fans back in attendance at live events commenting "...When fans are allowed to come back to professional sports I think we'll be one of the first (pro sports) to allow that again, simply because of the size of our venues." You can cheer or boo for Hamlin and the rest of the NASCAR Cup Series drivers this Sunday on FOX Richmond when they take to the track at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Pre-Race coverage begins at 3p.m.
