Denny Hamlin grabs first win of 2017 at New Hamsphire

Denny Hamlin was 8/1 to win at New Hampshire.
Denny Hamlin stormed to his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Hamlin led 54 of 301 laps in the No. 11 Toyota, taking the checkered flag of the Overton’s 301 with a .509-second margin of victory. Hamlin’s third win at the 1.058-mile track was the 30th of his career in NASCAR’s premier series, marking the first triumph this year for Joe Gibbs Racing.

Hamlin snapped a personal 28-race winless skid dating back to last September at Richmond Raceway.

Kyle Larson started last in the 39-car field and rallied to a second-place finish. He was demoted on the starting grid when an unapproved part was found on his Chip Ganassi Racing No. 42 Chevrolet, disallowing an apparent pole-winning lap.
