BRISTOL, Tenn. (WJHL) – Pole-winner Denny Hamlin won the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday night.

Hamlin’s No. 11 Toyota started first and swapped the lead several times with Kyle Larson’s No. 42 Chevrolet until a crash on lap 81 sent Hamlin out of the top 10.

Hamlin clawed his way back and in the final laps passed Matt DiBenedetto’s No. 95 Toyota, the final lead change of the race.

DiBenedetto, who lead most of the final 50 laps, was vying for his first Monster Energy Cup Series Win.
