It doesn't make much sense, and it is completely tragic. The NASCAR season just kicked off with the annual Daytona 500, and in a tale one would think could be scripted, the JGR Toyotas went 1-2-3, the victory earned by Denny Hamlin, the driver who was closest to JD, driving the  #11 car, which is the number JD ran during his brief foray as a NASCAR racer himself.
