Denny Hamlin will represent Team Interstate in the Championship Round for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup next week after battling through some early-race struggles Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway.

The driver of the No. 11 Toyota Camry started Sunday’s Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 from the pole and led the opening 24 laps before relinquishing the top spot on lap 25. A caution on lap 32 would bring the leaders down pit road, but Denny suffered a flat rear tire after the round of pit stops, forcing him to pit again and restart in the back of the field. Denny would eventually go a lap down, but some well-timed cautions helped him get back on the lead lap. He finished fifth, giving him enough points to claim his place in the finals.

Teammate Matt Kenseth ran strong all day and earned a third-place finish, but it wasn’t enough to advance to the championship round. Kyle Busch also showed strength early on with his No. 18 Banfield Pet Hospital/Interstate Batteries Toyota, but an accident on lap 212 left his car badly damaged and two laps down to the leaders. He would go on to finish 34th.

Kevin Harvick won the race and also advanced to the final round. Kevin and Denny will be joined by Joey Logano and Ryan Newman.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion will be crowned next Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and whichever of the four Chase finalists finishes first wins the championship.
