Sherwin-Williams announced that Denny Hamlin, sponsored by Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes, brought home the 2016 Daytona 500 checkered flag for Joe Gibbs Racing as his No. 11 Toyota, finished with the ULTRA 7000 Refinish System, won the closest Daytona 500 finish in history.

Hamlin’s car wasn’t the only one sporting an ULTRA 7000 finish – fellow NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competitors Martin Truex Jr., in the Furniture Row Racing No. 78 Toyota, and defending Sprint Cup champion Kyle Busch, in the No. 18 Toyota, also with Joe Gibbs Racing, finished in second and third place, respectively. Four of the top five finishers at this year’s race used Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes, with Joe Gibbs Racing’s Carl Edwards in the No. 19 Toyota finishing in fifth place.
