Denny Hamlin won the opening race of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase.

The driver of the No. 11 FedEx Toyota Camry beat out teammate Carl Edwards to take the checkered flag in the MyAFibRisk.com 400. Hamlin overcame a spin on lap 2 of the race which saw him go to the back of the field.

One driver who has a lot of work to do going forward is Kevin Harvick after an on-track incident sent him to the garage for remains leaving him multiple laps down.

Kurt Busch would gain the race lead in the later stages but with a late caution he stayed out on older tires while nearly all of the other Chase contenders came down pit road. Denny Hamlin – also on old tires – would take to lead with six to go as teammate Carl Edwards moved into second.

Of the 16 Chase driers, 15 finished inside the top-19. Only Harvick who finished 42nd did not.
