It’s Sweet Home Chicago for Denny Hamlin


Denny Hamlin found himself in the right place at the right time on fresh tires* to score the victory in the windy city.

You wouldn’t know the driver of the No. 11 FedEx Toyota had a torn ACL the way he drove from a lap down to victory lane. Teammate Carl Edwards finished runner-up and Kurt Busch rounded out the “podium” in third.

Kyle Busch, the dominant car of the race with 121 laps led, finished ninth.

Jeff Gordon, who ran a damn good race, was caught off when everyone pitted while he stayed out and finished 14th.

Kevin Harvick had a dominant car, but crashed out past halfway and finished 42nd.

I’ll have more on this race tomorrow.

*Correction: Denny Hamlin actually stayed out on the final caution*

Denny Hamlin, seen here at the Daytona 500, scored the victory in Chicago.
