During the NASCAR Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway, Denny Hamlin found himself in a challenging position. He was the leader going into overtime, but that turned out to be the worst place to be. On the restart, Kyle Larson made a daring move, diving inside Hamlin along with Chris Buescher. This three-wide situation quickly dropped Hamlin from the race lead to third place.

As if that wasn’t enough, on the white flag lap, Hamlin faced another battle for third place. Caught in the middle between Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Martin Truex Jr. and Chase Elliott, Hamlin lost momentum and ultimately finished in fifth place1. It was a tough break for the driver who had led a race-high 71 laps and won the first stage of the AdventHealth 400.

Despite the challenges, Hamlin’s crew chief, Chris Gabehart, had devised a strategy that kept them in contention. They had some pit road miscues earlier in the race, but Hamlin managed to stay competitive. The final caution flew with seven laps to go, and Hamlin kept the lead after a pit stop, restarting on the bottom of the front row for overtime. However, the difficult restart situation ultimately cost him a better finish.
