Hamlin's epic burnout after Martinsville win causes stir on social media

Sunday's STP 500 was a marquee day for Joe Gibbs Racing. The four-car Toyota team had not won in the previous 31 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts and, after placing three of their teams inside the top five, the entire organization was visibly elated.

No one more than race-winner Denny Hamlin.

Earning his fifth Martinsville victory and first of the season, Hamlin's post-race celebration was a treat to everyone in attendance.

Hamlin drifted his No.11 FedEX Camry through Turns 1 and 2, spinning into the infield grass. He then smoked the tires down the entire length of the frontstretch before doing donuts in Turns 3 and 4. His celebratory performance was met with thunderous applause from fans and fellow competitors alike.

Many in the NASCAR community took to social media to both document and praise the Virginia native after his 'epic' burnout.
