Why Denny Hamlin and Trackhouse Racing Duo’s Race Day Tunes Aren’t Surprising at All

Published 06/21/2022, 2:37 PM EDT

After an off weekend, NASCAR is ready to be back with rock and roll (and hip hop for those who like it) with Nashville up next. Since the history of the city is so connected with music, it’s only fair that the drivers revealed the songs they listen to on race days. But of all the drivers, the most obvious picks were from Denny Hamlin and the two Trackhouse Racing drivers.

The Joe Gibbs Racing driver’s favorite song was Post Malone’s ‘Circles’, and for Ross Chastain and Daniel Suarez, two Pitbull tracks, ‘I Believe That We Will Win’ and ‘Can’t Stop Us Now’, respectively.

These picks are unsurprising because Hamlin featured in a music video for Post Malone and as for the Pitbull tracks, well, he is the owner of Chastain and Suarez’s race team.

“I’m a fan of Post Malone and to be able to represent NASCAR and 23XI Racing in his latest music video was great. We experienced their side of things, now I’d love to get those guys to a race and show them around our team and the ins and outs of NASCAR, take them around the track in one of our Camrys and let them get the true feel of our cars,” he said.
