Old Guys Rule At Richmond

Until this Sunday, NASCAR’s young guns – drivers 30 years of age or younger – had dominated the Cup Series.

In fact, it had been 12 races since a driver older than 30 had won a Cup race – way back when Denny Hamlin won at Las Vegas on September 26.

However, NASCAR’s “old guys” still have a few tricks up their sleeves. Such was the case Sunday afternoon when several young guns of years past finished upfront at Richmond Raceway.

Ironically enough, it was the 41-year-old Hamlin who was the victor Sunday evening, clinching his fourth win at his home track. The timing could not have been better for the Virginia native, as all Toyotas had been struggling this season and Hamlin had not finished better than 13th through the first six races of the year.
