Chesterfield, Va.-native Denny Hamlin earned his first career victory at his home track of Richmond International Raceway after leading 12 of 253 laps in today's race.

Today's win marked the fifth consecutive win by a Camry in the NNS. Tony Stewart earned the win at Talladega last weekend and Kyle Busch visited victory lane for the three straight weekends before that -- at Texas, Phoenix and Mexico City.

Other Camrys in Saturday's race included Kyle Busch (third), Mike Wallace (13th), Jason Leffler (16th) and David Reutimann (18th).

Since the start of this season, Camry drivers have earned 15 top-five and 28 top-10 finishes in NNS competition.

Today's win gives Camry drivers seven wins in Nationwide Series competition this season. Stewart started the 2008 season with wins at Daytona (2-16-08) and at California (2-25-08), in addition to last week's win at Talladega. His JGR teammate, Busch , went to victory lane at Texas (4 -5-08), Phoenix (4-11-08) and Mexico (4-20-08).

Four Camry drivers are among the top-10 in the NNS point standings following the 10th race of the season at Richmond. Busch (third) leads the Toyota contingent, followed by Reutimann (sixth), Leffler (eighth) and Wallace (ninth).
