Denny Hamlin has ended a 50-race winless
skid by holding off Juan Pablo Montoya over the final thrilling
laps to win at Pocono Raceway.

Hamlin again made Pocono his personal playground, winning on
Monday for the third time in eight career starts. He's had three
other top 10s on the triangle track.

The race had been delayed a day because of rain. Usually not
known as a track that produces exciting races, this one was wild
and unpredictable almost from the start.

Clint Bowyer was third. Sam Hornish Jr. was fourth for his best
finish in a Cup car, and Kasey Kahne was fifth.

This is Hamlin's first victory since Martinsville Speedway in
March 2008, and he strengthened his bid for a spot in the Chase for
the championship.
