Denny Hamlin said that he is not worried about whether he can get a win in the next two races because he thinks he can.
Hamlin had a rather poor showing at Kansas Speedway in the first race of the Round of 8. He could only finish as high as 15 after hitting the wall and losing a lap to make repairs.

The result leaves him 20 points above the cutline, and just 12 points above Brad Keselowski who occupy the last position. While Keselowski has said that he sees Hamlin in his sights, the Joe Gibbs Racing driver is not too worried about the next two races.
“We can win every week, Hamlin said. “Every week, we’re upfront. I think we can win next week. We can win the week after that, and we can win the week after that. Not too worried about having to go out there and win because I know we can do it.”
For his performances throughout the season, Hamlin is expected to make the Championship 4 along with Kevin Harvick. While Harvick has a healthy lead, Hamlin might have to turn out of strong performances in the next two races to qualify for the final race of the 2020 season.
