Denny Hamlin scoffs at any mention of extra focus for championship race weekend.

He played tennis with friends until 1 a.m., less than 12 hours prior to green flag last Sunday when he more or less had to win the elimination race for a shot at the title.

“I just am not going to change who I am,” Hamlin said after his victory at ISM Raceway near Phoenix. “If I want to go out for a late dinner, I’m going to go out for a late dinner. It’s what I do every single week, and we won six races and had success.

“It’s not going to make me do better if I go into the hotel room and lock myself in at 8. … I’m going to enjoy the moment.”

One driver will seriously enjoy the moment Sunday when NASCAR crowns its Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Sunday (3 p.m. ET, NBC) at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
