CONCORD, N.C. — Overcoming a pit penalty and a furious last-lap battle with Kyle Larson, Denny Hamlin charged to a victory in the Hisense 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Austin Dillon finished second, followed by Joey Logano, who started alongside Kyle Larson on the front row for the two-lap restart in overtime. Cole Custer (fourth) scored his first top five in the Xfinity Series, and Justin Allgaier was fifth.
