RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Denny Hamlin returned from last week's injury-shortened weekend and led almost from start to finish Friday night to win the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Richmond International Raceway.

Hamlin led the first 154 laps after starting on the pole. He relinquished the lead for one lap to Brian Scott during a series of green-flag pit stops, and to Elliott Sadler during another green flag stop late in the race, but both times regained the lead on the following lap. The Virginia driver routinely built leads of several seconds on the 0.75-mile oval and won by 3.719 seconds.

"It's been a great day obviously right from the very start," Hamlin said. "Our car had some great speed and that's the key to victory. It's not tricks or anything like that. It's just you've got to have a fast car.
