Darlington could not have come at a better time for Denny Hamlin, as his first win of the season moves him forward in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.

Our Hard Left Turn crew takes a look at the news coming out of Sunday's race at the track "Too Tough To Tame", including:

-Hamlin held off Kyle Larson to score his third career Southern 500 victory on Sunday night.

-The "Lady In Black" was very mean to several Playoff contenders, including three of the four Hendrick Motorsports teammates.

-It was a classic Darlington race, with the old track already having repurcussions in the Playoffs after serving as opener.

-Kyle Busch had a very bad night, followed by a bad Tuesday as he was hit with a fine for reckless driving in the garage area.

Plus, we'll preview Saturday night's race at Richmond Raceway.
