The winner of the NASCAR Cup Series playoff race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday gave himself some peace of mind for the next few weeks.

Denny Hamlin won the South Point 400, so he won’t have to worry about the forthcoming pandemonium at Talladega and the Charlotte Roval. He finished 0.442 seconds ahead of defending Cup Series winner Chase Elliott, who pushed through traffic in the final circuits to cut into Hamlin’s advantage.
While the other playoff drivers battle for a spot in the next round, Hamlin can begin preparing for the Round of 8.

“I’m so relieved to not have to worry about the next two weeks,” he told NBCSN’s Dave Burns after the race. “But I’m a professional, and I’ll work just as hard each and every week to win.”
In the second part of Sunday’s race, Hamlin was at his best. He won Stage 2 and led for the majority of Stage 3. He lost the lead during green-flag pit stops, but reclaimed it with 39 laps remaining when everyone else had pitted.

In the 267-lap race, Hamlin led a race-high 137 laps.
Following his runner-up finish, Elliott is now sixth in the playoff points rankings.

“We felt like we were performing at a pretty excellent level over the last three or four weeks, but we just haven’t had fantastic outcomes to show for it,” Elliott told Burns. “I’m proud of how hard I worked tonight. I’m excited for the next two. It’s going to be a wild ride.”
Denny Hamlin is now leading in the NASCAR standings thanks to his win on Sunday, although he still trails Kyle Larson by 14 points. Larson is well on his way to the Round of 8 after finishing 10th in Las Vegas. He leads ninth-place driver William Byron by 57 points.

Byron is joined below the cut line after the Round of 12 opener by Kevin Harvick, who finished ninth, Alex Bowman, and Christopher Bell. Byron, Bowman, and Bell had the poorest Round of 12 finishes. They finished in the 18th, 22nd, and 24th places, respectively.
Denny Hamlin finished first of three Joe Gibbs Racing drivers in the top four on Sunday. Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. came in third and fourth place, respectively. Chase Eliiott of Hendrick Motorsports finished second to break up the pack. Ryan Blaney of Team Penske rounded out the top five.

The YellaWood 500 at Talladega on Sunday, Oct. 3 (2 p.m. ET; NBC, TSN3, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) and the Bank of American ROVAL 400 at Charlotte on Sunday, Oct. 10 are the final two races in the Round of 12.
