Hamlin wins for 25th time, and fifth time at Martinsville

MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) — Denny Hamlin passed teammate Matt Kenseth for the lead with 28 laps to go Sunday and went on to end Toyota's 32-race winless streak in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Martinsville Speedway.

The driver for Joe Gibbs Racing held off a five-lap, bumper-to-tail challenge from Brad Keselowski for his 25th career race and fifth at the smallest and oldest track in the premier series.

"I did everything I could other than wreck him," Keselowski said.
