Denny Hamlin inched ahead of William Byron on the final turn and nosed out the rookie at the finish line, winning the closest NASCAR Xfinity race at Michigan International Speedway since the advent of electronic scoring in the series.
It was Hamlin’s 16th career Xfinity victory and first in three starts this year, but the 19-yearold Byron made him earn it. Byron led after a restart with two laps remaining, but Hamlin pressured him the rest of the way, and the Cup Series veteran eventually prevailed by 0.012 seconds in his No. 20 Toyota. HOCKEY

Peter Burling and Emirates Team New Zealand made fewer mistakes than Jimmy Spithill and Oracle Team USA and won the first two races of the 35th America’s Cup.
