We were under the lights at Richmond Saturday night. This is Elliott Sadler's home track. Oh, but it's also Denny Hamlin's home track.

Hamlin started on the pole and led the 1st lap, and the 2nd lap, and the 3rd lap...and the 3ooth lap, and 301st lap, and the 302nd lap, you get the picture. After being everyone's bff last week at Talladega by bump drafting everyone to the front and then leading the whole race Saturday night, he deserved to win. But with just 20 laps to go, he had a flat tire and came to a complete stop on the track. Sorry Denny.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kyle Busch battled for 1st. As they were side by side, Busch went up the track and Jr. went down the track and they collided. Did you know that there are a lot of Jr. fans in Richmond? There are. Did you know they like to defend Jr. even though he was partly at fault for causing his own spin out? They do. And so while everyone was busy booing Busch, Clint Bowyer slipped to the front and won his second cup race.

Elliott Sadler had an issue with his brakes--he didn't like them--and he finished 20th. He is now 25th in points. Top 12 makes the Chase.

Clint Bowyer gets the win, Patrick Carpentier gets the red lantern, and we get another night race on Saturday at Darlington.
