Busch Denies Hamlin Weekend Sweep At Richmond
RICHMOND, VA (AP) Kyle Busch has won at Richmond International Raceway to deny teammate Denny Hamlin a weekend sweep at his home track.
It is Busch’s third straight victory in the spring race at Richmond. He stretched his final tank of gas 107 laps Saturday night to win his second Sprint Cup Series race of the year.
Hamlin settled for second, giving Joe Gibbs Racing a sweep of the top two spots. Hamlin won his charity race at RIR on Thursday night, then added a victory in Friday’s night’s Nationwide race to set himself up for a potential sweep.
Kasey Kahne finished third to give Toyota the top three spots.
Roush Fenway Racing drivers David Ragan and Carl Edwards rounded out the top five in Fords.
