When Hamlin takes to the track for Sunday’s big race, fans will be treated to a specially designed paint scheme just for the Monster Mile that shows support for Autism Speaks. This will be the second straight year Hamlin has run a special paint scheme for Autism Speaks at Dover, and just another component in the now six-year partnership between Autism Speaks and the track.

Also, the first 11,000 fans through the gate at the FedEx 400 will receive a mini-diecast No. 11 car that also serves as a FedEx Office coupon.

Hamlin will be on hand representing FedEx and Autism Speaks the night before his race during the pep rally for the NASCAR Unites Track Walk and Sunoco Free Fuel 5K Run, set to take place immediately after the Saturday, June 2 “5-hour ENERGY 200” NASCAR Nationwide Series race. The driver will help rally the walk from the SPEED stage in the FanZone before the event begins.

Outside of the track during race weekend, fans will notice a new addition to the Monster Monument in Victory Plaza, presented by AAA. For race weekend, the Monster will be holding a giant FedEx delivery box under his left arm, adding a unique new photo opportunity for fans on-site.

Tickets are still on sale for the June 3 “FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, the June 2 “5-hour ENERGY 200” NASCAR Nationwide Series race and the June 1 “Lucas Oil 200” NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race.
