Denny Hamlin Wins Green-White-Checkered Talladega Race
Denny Hamlin didn’t lead all day until it truly mattered, when two “Big Ones” inflicted the field of cars and sent multiple teams home packing.
Hamlin’s first win of the season officially came on a caution on the last lap after a huge wreck that left the entire front end of a car on the front stretch.
The past two weeks’ winner, Joey Logano, got caught up in a wreck with Jimmie Johnson and ended up finishing 32nd. Recent frontrunner Jeff Gordon and many others also caught some damage in a wreck caused by Brad Keselowski, who was in last at the time.
Next week, it’s more under the lights action as the screaming fast Kansas speedway will host the NASCAR circuit.
