RICHMOND, Va. -- Clint Bowyer raced to his firstvictory of the season in winning the Dan Lowry 400 at Richmond International Raceway. Kyle Busch ran second, followed by Mark Martin, Tony Stewart and Martin Truex Junior.
Denny Hamlin led 381 of the 400 laps. But he lost the lead when
a leaking right tire allowed Dale Earnhardt Junior and Busch to
scoot past him with 18 laps to go. Caution came out with eight to
go when Hamlin's tire finally failed. That set up what looked to be
a showdown between Earnhardt and Busch over the final laps.
But Busch spun Earnhardt with three to go. As those two raced
for the lead, Bowyer slid past both to drive away to the win.
