Hamlin was able to fend off pole sitter, Martin Truex Jr. to get the victory. Truex made a couple of late pass attempts against Hamlin in the closing laps, but couldn’t quite find a way past him.

According to oddsmakers, Hamlin had 12/1 odds to win this week’s race, meaning a $100 wager on him to win will pay out an additional $1,200.

The win puts Hamlin into fifth place in the standings, 23 points out of first place. Truex Jr. jumps up two spots to second place, 15 points behind Greg Biffle for first. Biffle had another solid finish, placing fifth on Sunday for his fifth top 5 of the season.

Jimmie Johnson came in third in Sunday’s race, while Biffle’s teammate, Matt Kenseth, placed fourth for his fifth top 5 of the season as well.
