RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Denny Hamlin will under go knee surgery today just one day after winning the rain-delayed Goody's 500 race in Martinsville.

Hamlin and South Boston's Jeff Burton traded the lead throughout the race until a flat took Burton out with nine laps to go.

Hamlin surged to fourth. Then with one lap to go, Kyle Busch was sent into the wall.

Hamlin plowed his way to the front to take his first checkered flag of the season.
