Who won the NASCAR race yesterday?
Denny Hamlin blocked Kyle Larson in the Cook Out Southern 500 to win his first victory in the 2021 Cup Series. Hamlin led by about half a second until Larson drove his car too hard into the corner on lap 4 of the white flag circle, all the way to Hamlin’s rear bumper. Larson said he desperately tried to “play video games.”
Hamlin said to NBCSN after the game: “He drove it to the limit of the car and tires, and then added, “He will have to pass me. “
Hamlin and Larsson — they led 302 laps in 367 laps of the race — played a rally at the start/finish line. Hamlin stayed ahead and won by two tenths of a second.
“To be honest, it was too fast to get to his bumper. I hope he will run the diamond to ensure safety. I can get around his outside, but I gave everything I have.” Larson said, according to NASCAR.com.
“I don’t want to ruin him. I just want to try to go outside of him, but he did a good job and didn’t make any mistakes in the last game. I had to try very hard to stay with him in the second round. “Larson added.
Among active Cup racers, Hamlin surpassed Kevin Harvick (Kevin Harvick) in fourth place and won the most Darlington victories.
NASCAR Cup Playoffs Standings
Although Hamlin got his seat in the second round and Larson improved his lead in the playoffs, four postseason racers suffered in the standings after crashing on a “too difficult to tame” track. Hit hard. Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, William Byron and Michael McDowell all ran into trouble and ended up with poor results in addition to scrapped cars.
McDowell was the first to go out, followed by Bush, Byron and Elliott. Busch, Byron and McDowell now occupy the last three positions in the playoffs standings, which puts them in danger of being eliminated in the 16 knockout rounds early on. The third Hendrick Motorsports driver, Alex Bowman, was tied for 12th place and therefore flirted with the promotion line. Elliott was ranked 10th after the playoff opener.
Ryan Blaney dropped from second to fifth after finishing 22nd due to brake problems.
