Fast facts: Denny Hamlin said he felt dizzy and had his "bell rung" after a hard crash during full-field testing Thursday. He was going 202 mph over the repaved surface of the 1½-mile tri-oval when he clipped the rear of his car on the wall entering Turn 1. Hamlin's primary car shot toward the apron and he overcorrected, sending it into the outside wall. "It was the first time I really had some dizziness after a hit," he said. "Usually I'm sore or your jaw hurts from clenching your jaw. This is the first time I really got dizzy."… The track has been repaved and reconfigured since the race in May.
