A little luck goes a long way. Sure, those words ring true to the 98 percent of Americans whose NCAA Tournament brackets turned to trash .

About time someone else besides JJ had a little luck, but I'd attribute Hamlins win more to having the cajones to not give up after a questionable pit stop and the talent to bull his way through to the front. I'm sure there was none of the talking to the spotter asking him to go ask so and so's spotter to tell him to let him pass. He raced! And it's about time.

Luck? If there was any luck involved, I'd say Denny made it for himself. It looked to me like he put his head down and drove that baby to the bottom and the lead all by himself. Kenseth's love tap on Gordon and Gordon's returned favor hardly mattered. Denny was coming and who happened to be there was going to get the chrome hump blown at them. I got a real laugh at the result of Kenseth's little cheap shot.

I too enjoyed Jeff's love tap!! Guess Kenseth has forgotten riling Jeff up and getting a "personal" shove from a previous attempt to shove Jeff out.

The LUCK was in the fact that Kyle ended up turned around. Everyone and their momma knows that race was stolen from Jeff. Hamlin was just dang lucky Jeff wasn't allowed to cross that line, same way Johnson was lucky he got across the line just before the leader put him a lap down in California.
Yeah, if anyone wants to claim some luck is involved, then it works both ways. Jeff got robbed, plain and simple. That was BS, and NASCAR just added more evidence for the conspiracy theorists that claim the races are 'fixed'.
