DAYTONA BEACH FL. — Denny Hamlin won a wild crash filled Sprint Unlimited race at Daytona International Speedway Saturday night. Hamlin was dominate in all three segments and survived a race of attrition as only eight of the original 18 starters finished the 75 lap exhibition race.
Thanks to a fan vote, final practice speeds determined the starting lineup giving the pole to Hamlin and leaving Jimmie Johnson last in the 18 car field.
Hamlin took an early lead while the field wasted no time mixing it up behind him. Hamlin led until lap 3 when Jamie McMurray shot by bringing the rest of the field single file with him and leaving Hamlin on the bottom all alone; he fell in 13th. MORE>>
