As a pack went around the final lap, Hamlin passed Ryan Newman and was the first to cross the finish line, but Hamlin did so while going under the yellow line, which a driver can’t do to pass someone.

Hamlin was DQ’d and pushed back to a 12th place finish while Busch got the win as he and Jamie McMurray passed Newman prior to the finish to end up first and second respectively.

Busch had 12/1 odds to win the event according to oddsmakers at online sportsbook so a $100 wager on him will pay out an additional $1,200.

Defending series champion Jimmie Johnson finished fourth on the day while Greg Biffle rounded out the top five.
