Denny Hamlin Wins At Atlanta

AdvoCare 500

For the second week in a row the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series raced under the lights. This time around it was at the Atlanta Motor Speedway as Denny Hamlin would take the checkered flag at the AdvoCare 500. It was Denny’s second win in a row after winning last week in Bristol and his fourth win of the season.

It appeared the race would be rather uneventful as there were minimal cautions. That all changed at lap 264 when  Carl Edwards would blow an engine then a few laps later, Ryan Newman, Jimmie Johnson and Sam Hornish Jr. would get into a crash on lap 269.  Hamlin was leading at the time of the caution, but Martin Truex Jr. would have an excellent restart to blow right past Denny for the lead. Jamie McMurray would cause a caution at lap at 320 as he hit the wall. Hamlin would regain the lead as he would be the first off of pit road during the caution and then would battle Jeff Gordon for the eventual win. Brad Keselowski would take third followed by Truex Jr. and Kevin Harvick rounding out the top 5.

Hamlin, Truex Jr., Keselowski, Harvick along with Matt Kenseth and Clint Bowyer all clinched spots in the race for the chase joining Greg Biffle, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson. Tony Stewart clinched at least a wild card spot.

Next Saturday the Sprint Cup Series will be under the lights once again in the last race before the chase in Richmond, VA for the Federated Auto Parts 400. All the action can be seen on ABC at 7p.
