Talladega Race Report

Denny Hamlin captured his first victory of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season with a win in today’s Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway.

Meanwhile teammate Kyle Busch finished 13th and Matt Kenseth was collected in an accident and left to finish 37th.

Hamlin started his No. 11 FedEx Express Toyota from the back of the field in 35th but chose to make his way forward early in the race. He would take his first lead on lap 32 and led six different times over the course of the race. Hamlin managed to avoid a number of wrecks that eliminated many contenders including one that took out his teammate Kenseth with just over 50 laps remaining. Hamlin was leading late when a caution came out to set up a final two-lap run to the finish. Hamlin managed to use the low lane on the bottom of the track to secure the lead and was at the front of the pack when a caution came out on the final lap to freeze the field and secure his first trip to victory lane in 2014.
