Denny Hamlin is now tied with Tim Flock and Matt Kenseth on the NASCAR Cup Series wins list.

Hamlin took the checkered flag Wednesday night (May 20) in the Toyota 500 at Darlington Raceway, his second win of 2020 and 39th of his career.

“We made really good adjustments between the two races, really worked hard to get our car a little bit better than what it was here on Sunday,” Hamlin said. “Really things just kind of worked out.”
