Denny Hamlin Beats teammate Kyle Busch, to win at Darlington
With only five laps to go, driver Denny Hamlin pulled away from teammate Kyle Busch to take his third straight Nationwide victory at Darlington Raceway. Busch finished second. Jamie McMurray finished third.
Busch looked as if he could pull it out in the end, moving about half a car length in front. But Hamlin’s Toyota quickly regained the lead and moved out to about a half-second edge.
Hamlin won at Darlington in 2006 and 2007 and, like this time, started from the pole both times. He didn’t compete in the Nationwide races at the track in 2008 and 2009.
