Sure, a great deal of the talk centers on Dale Earnhardt Jr., but let's not dismiss the second duel winner, Denny Hamlin. This is a guy who stuck his nose in the middle of the Hendrick domination early last season, hanging on to the number two spot for the majority of the season, before struggling mightily in the Chase for the Nextel Cup.
Since then, a lot has changed as Hamlin, now riding a Toyota found himself in Victory Lane.
"It's great, especially this backup engine... It feels great to get Toyota's first win," says Hamlin.
