NBA legend Michael Jordan comforts Denny Hamlin after Homestead loss

BY foxsports • November 17, 2014

Denny Hamlin may have fallen short in his quest for a NASCAR championship, but he still has "His Airness" on his side.

After Sunday's finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Hamlin received a visit from good friend and NBA legend Michael Jordan. USA TODAY's Jeff Gluck caught the moment on Instagram (with a brief cameo from FOX Sports 1's Adam Alexander). 

Afterwards, Hamlin showed some Jordan-like passion on Twitter for his outstanding season.
