Sprint Cup star Denny Hamlin now has something in common with Dwyane Wade, Derek Jeter and Terrell Owens -- the Joe Gibbs Racing driver announced on Thursday he has a deal with the Michael Jordan Nike Brand.
Michael Jordan couldn't do it. Neither could Joe Montana. Brett Favre? Time will tell. How can an athlete walk away when the passion still burns? Don't ask Mark Martin. He simply can't, writes David Newton.
If the late Dale Earnhardt had elected to continue running his Busch Series program over adding a third car in Cup, history -- and Jimmie Johnson's career -- could be far different, writes David Newton.
