It has been all Denny Hamlin in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200 at Darlington Raceway. Despite starting the race from the rear, and being mired in the pack after a pit stop during the Stage 1 caution, Hamlin looks unstoppable and has swept Stages 1 and 2.

Brandon Jones, Hamlin’s Joe Gibbs Racing Teammate, finished second in Stage 2

Chase Briscoe and Ross Chastain finished third and fourth.

Chastain was fortunate, as Noah Gragson got into the side of him and spun to bring out the caution that ended the Stage.

Harrison Burton, in a throwback scheme which pays tribute to his father Jeff Burton, ended the Stage in fifth.

Ryan Sieg, Austin Cindric, Michael Annett, Jeremy Clements and Riley Herbst rounded out the top-10 finishers in Stage 2.
