Team Interstate‘s Denny Hamlin may call 2013 a season to forget, but its finale was one to remember. Denny won Sunday’s Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, continuing his streak of at least one victory in each of his eight full Cup seasons.

Denny suffered a compression fracture in his back earlier in the season and had to miss four races. He returned with continued pain and suffered a handful of bad finishes. He ended the season 23rd in points, the lowest finishing position of his career.

“At this point what I really love about this win is that you appreciate it so much more because you went through the bad times,” Denny said. “I was just so fortunate for the first seven years of my career to not really have a horrible season. It was just taken for granted, it seemed like. For me it just makes me appreciate that opportunity that I have, really the cars that I drive.”

Teammate Matt Kenseth finished second, but it wasn’t enough to catch Jimmie Johnson, who won his sixth championship. Matt finished the season in 2nd place.

Team Interstate’s Kyle Busch wrangled his ill-handling racecar to a seventh-place finish Sunday. The top-10 finish helped Kyle secure fourth in the final Sprint Cup standings, the highest points finish of his career.

“This is my best points finish ever and the best together with all of these M&M’s guys,” Kyle said. “I can’t thank everyone on this 18 team for all of their hard work this year. Can’t say enough about everyone back at Joe Gibbs Racing for giving us great cars, M&M’s, Interstate Batteries , Toyota, TRD (Toyota Racing Development). We had our best Chase ever, and we have something to build upon for next year.”
