In celebration of his 40th birthday, here are our 11 (see what we did there?) favorite GIFs starring everybody’s favorite three-time Daytona 500-winning driver of the No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, Denny Hamlin.

This year, Denny taught us that our poncho game is weak compared to his. Clear, with logos, making the fire suit visible underneath? It’s the stuff of genius.

Denny showed us what it’s like every time performance reviews roll around.

He taught us to eat whatever’s on our plates, even if we don’t like it.

Unless, of course, it’s lobster. Then you run far, far away.

Computers, am I right? Somebody call IT. Zoom’s on the fritz again.

Who could forget the time nobody gave Denny a ride back to pit road after an issue in practice? Come on; cut the guy a break!

Denny loves his family. Even when Taylor accidentally shuts off the iRacing monitor mid-race.

He’s the king of impressions. It’s impossible to watch this GIF and not hear Denny imitating Joey Logano.

Denny even taught us how to Dougie back in 2012. Again, an innovator!

Denny social distanced before it was even a thing. We’re impressed at his foresight.

And, of course, Denny’s always ready to show us how to smile when we’re happy — and really show it on the outside, too.
