Denny Hamlin came away victorious Sunday night in the Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway for his 31st career win in NASCAR’s premiere series.
Hamlin closed a multi-second gap and passed race leader Martin Truex Jr. with three laps to go.
“This is a throwback to my history; this is for Roy Hendrick, Bugs Hairfield, Wayne Patterson, Eddie Johnson, the short track guys that I grew up watching,” said Hamlin, whose paint scheme was a throwback to “Mr. Modified” Ray Hendrick.
