NASCAR 2014: Denny Hamlin Wins Aaron’s 499 At Talladega

After surviving a long afternoon chaos, Denny Hamlin managed to win the Aaron’s 499 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at the Talladega Superspeedway this Sunday. It came as a complete surprise simply because Denny Hamlin was barely in lead the entire afternoon but as the race moved closer to the finishing laps, the not so popular driver emerged as the winner.
