Denny Hamlin brings his favorite cars directly into his living room


If you need some interior design tips, look no further than NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin. His living room is just about perfect. A glass divider separates the most important room in the house (The one with the TV of course) from a garage where Hamlin has three very special cars. The 2006 Budweiser Shootout winner, his very first stock car and the most recent addition: The 2016 Daytona 500 winner, complete with dirt, champagne stains and confetti.

The Daytona 500 winner, according to Hamlin via, is still in exact racing condition. "You could start the engine if you wanted to," Hamlin says. In addition to being one of the biggest wins of his career, that Daytona race was the closest finish ever, and Hamlin will never forget it, saying:

"I just think over and over about the last lap. I've driven hundreds and thousands of laps it seems like in the Cup Series and that was probably my best driving final lap or any lap that I've ever driven. Really, to come from fourth or fifth on the final lap to win that race in the shape or form or fashion that we did, it was a career-defining moment for myself."

Hamlin said he built his house with a special car in mind, he just had no idea it would end up being this one.
