BRISTOL, Tenn. – Denny Hamlin passed Matt DiBenedetto in the closing laps of Saturday’s Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway to earn his fourth victory of the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season.
DiBenedetto was looking to win his first-ever series race after learning that he wasn’t returning to Leavine Family Racing earlier in the week. Hamlin pulled off the race-winning pass with just 12 laps to go to earn his sixth consecutive top-five finish.
DiBenedetto had to settle for a runner-up finish. Brad Keselowski finished third, followed by Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, Kyle Larson, Clint Bowyer, Daniel Suarez, Kurt Busch and Ryan Blaney.
