The 2012 Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceway raced in the shadow of last week's Daytona 500. Penalties and press releases from last week continued to be the biggest story in Phoenix.
Denny Hamlin backup his top five finish in Daytona with another fast car in Phoenix. Hamlin held off Kevin Harvick by having more fuel at the end. Hamlin won today's Subway Fresh Fit 500. His two top runs in 2012 leave him standing alone on top of this season's point standings and make him the man to beat so far in 2012.
