Race Rundown

Denny Hamlin gets 40th career Cup win at Homestead-Miami: The race statistics will show that Denny Hamlin led a dominating 138 of the 267-laps in Sunday’s Dixie Vodka 400 but the truth is he had to earn every fraction of a second that he paced the field. It was a thrilling chase for the checkered flag, lap-after-lap among the front-running cars. Hamlin ultimately took the lead for good – passing Chase Elliott with 29 laps remaining after a series of green flag pit stops swapped the two cars’ positions in front of the field. Elliott had pit a lap earlier than Hamlin and held a 1.5-second lead in the dozen or so laps after the green flag stops. But Hamlin was able to catch up with Elliott as they tried to get around the race’s early leader Joey Logano, who was running two laps down at the time.[Read More](6-14-2020)
