The key was a decision to stay on the track instead of pitting for tires when Kyle Larson hit the wall with 25 laps to go. Kyle Busch along with his brother Kurt, Daniel Suarez and Paul Menard made the risky decision and it paid off.
Not even a pair of pit road penalties could keep Denny Hamlin from winning his second race of the season. Hamlin was assessed penalties for speeding and an uncontrolled tire but recovered to lead 45 of the 334 laps at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday. It's Hamlin's third win at Texas and the 33rd of his career.
