Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com gave Hamlin 8/1 odds to win Sunday’s race, meaning a bet of $100 on Hamlin will pay out $800.

Hamlin now has three wins on the year and was able to take advantage of mistakes from Jeff Gordon and Jeff Burton to take the lead late and hold off Jamie McMurray, who finished in second after winning the pole on Friday.

Kurt Busch came in third while Juan Pablo Montoya took fourth. Gordon rallied from his late mistake to finish in fifth place, but still had another win elude him.

Another pre-race favorite, Jimmie Johnson, finished 36th after suffering a wreck during the race.
