CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Denny Hamlin's No. 11 team successfully defended its title in NASCAR's Pit Crew Challenge on Thursday night, edging Jimmie Johnson's No. 48 team in the final round.
Hamlin's seven-member team changed four tires, put in gas and pushed the car 40 yards in 22.298 seconds without collecting a penalty to earn $70,675. The crew now gets to select its pit stall Saturday for the All-Star race.
Clint Bowyer's No. 33 team and Tony Stewart's No. 14 crew combined to split all the individual awards - and rewrite the record book. They set event records based on their times in the seeding and opening rounds to collect $10,000 each.
But the No. 14 crew had 10 seconds worth of penalties in the semifinals to wipe out a victory and give Johnson's team its first spot in the final.
