A lightning quick pit stop with 30 to go grabbed Denny Hamlin the lead at Darlington Raceway. Under a full moon, and a rash of late race cautions, Hamlin managed to hold his position to grab his second win of the Busch series season.

Matt Kenseth was leading when a debris caution fell with 30 to go, Hamlin's No. 20 team got him off pit road first and into the lead. From there, it was Hamlin's race to loose. Kenseth tried to no avail to get around Hamlin as a series of cautions slowed the field - but it was Hamlin's night to shine.

"I can't say enough for this pit crew. They won this race, they got me out of pitroad first," Hamlin said. "This is a great night for us and this team. I am really excited."

Kenseth led a race high 50 laps but wound up second, "That pit stop really hurt us. Once we lost the track position we just couldn't get back by."

Jamie McMurray, Mark Martin and Greg Biffle complete the top five.

Mark Martin and Greg Biffle closed out the top five positions.
