Joe Gibbs Racing, Denny Hamlin unveil new-look No. 11 for 2019

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — Joe Gibbs Racing revealed a clean, new look for the No. 11 Toyota to be driven by Denny Hamlin in the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series on Monday, carrying longtime sponsor FedEx’s familiar logo but as part of a prominent, brighter design.

The design breaks from the darker paint schemes that had adorned the No. 11 in years past, with large swatches of white on the hood and doors replacing the predominantly purple and black schemes from previous seasons. The patches of white evoke the classic design of FedEx’s delivery trucks and envelopes.

The new look debuted on Joe Gibbs Racing’s social media channels Monday morning. The first full glimpse of the No. 11’s primary design is scheduled next month at Daytona International Speedway, where Hamlin claimed the Daytona 500 crown in 2016.

The paint scheme ranks as one of several new wrinkles for Hamlin this season. Chris Gabehart will be the No. 11 team’s new crew chief, replacing Michael Wheeler, who joins Leavine Family Racing after a three-season pairing with Hamlin at JGR. And Hamlin will try to rebound from his first full-time winless season in NASCAR’s top division.

This story will be updated.
