Denny Hamlin wins in Texas and takes Chase lead

Last year at NASCAR's media day, we interviewed Denny Hamlin. He's a confident young man who drives old school. He knew it was just a matter of time before his day would come.

Well, it's almost here. With two races left in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, Hamlin is in the lead. He won the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway yesterday. It was his eighth victory of 2010. Hamlin currently leads the standings by 33 points over Jimmie Johnson and 59 points over Kevin Harvick. It is one of the closest three-way finishes in NASCAR history. Johnson is seeking to win a fifth-straight title.
