Ham­lin gives Gibbs first win of sea­son

Toronto Star - - SPORTS/SCOREBOARD -

LOUDON, N.H.— Denny Ham­lin held off Kyle Lar­son over the fi­nal laps Sun­day at New Hamp­shire Mo­tor Speed­way to send Joe Gibbs Racing to vic­tory lane for the first time this sea­son. One of the top or­ga­ni­za­tions in NASCAR, JGR had yet to have any of its four driv­ers win un­til Ham­lin took the lead with 33 laps left and held off the hard-charg­ing Lar­son on the fi­nal lap. Ham­lin needed his 30th ca­reer Cup vic­tory to se­cure a berth in NASCAR’s ver­sion of the post-sea­son.
