Denny Hamlin said he never intended to guarantee a victory this weekend in the NASCAR race in New Hampshire. After running out of fuel to finish 16th in the Sprint Cup opener at Chicago last week, Hamlin tweeted, ''This is week 1 of 10. We will win next week.'' But speaking before qualifying at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Friday, Hamlin said he just meant he was looking ahead, not backward. ''I said it as basically another way to say, `We'll get them next week,''' Hamlin said. Hamlin heads into the race Sunday in fourth place in the NASCAR standings, 15 points behind leader Brad Keselowski.
