but the marsh associates and employees. fun to work with and handle with. this race was a good one. we had a really good car. we knew if we played through traffic better than the 11 we'd have a shot at the win. we did that. >> krista: the battle with your teammate, was it the difference, the battling through the traffic? >> i learned from denny hamlin last year. i have won't say what i learned but he might know. we did a good job of doing what we needed to do early in the run. once we got out and had to go through traffic. the traffic fell our way. we were able to pick our way through there. we didn't get held up through there. but i can't say enough. dave rogers and the m&m team did a phenomenal team. we just, we were the best of it here this weekend. proud of the guys for digging in deep and pulling it out today.
hopefully we'll keep the momentum rolling. you know, go through darlington and get to charlotte. one of my favorite. >> krista: short track, long at success. wins at richmond. steve byrnes is where his teammate. >> steve: denny hamlin needed a good finish. a tough start for the season but how important was it tonight? >> very important to have a smooth race, nothing go wrong or anything like that. a good pit stop late in the race. got beat by the teammate. we're so equal and he was better on the restart and table to get out there -- and he was able to get out there and set the pace. he drove a great race. i thought he'd burn up so we sat back there riding but if he wanted to go, he could pick it up. the cars were dead equal for the most part, we just got beat. >> steve: can you build on this for darlington next week? >> i think so. this is what we need with the fedex race team to get back on track.
can't say enough for gibbs to stick with it. >> chris: thank you. for the fourth time, first and second place finish between denny hamlin and kyle busch. they split those so far. denny won the previous two. kyle gets him this time. last fall, kyle said i learned from him. not going to reveal what he did but it was the other way around. look at the unofficial results from a wild night in richmond. >> jeff: look at how the teammates are running. all toyotas at the top of the list. kasey kahne with a great run. this is what mike ford needed. and denny hamlin. shut everybody up as far as how they're working together. >> chris: hamlin led 48 laps but of the 400, kyle busch to lead 235 laps. really, the last 84. not much in doubt. >> jeff: catch me if you can. >> chris: his favorite movie kyle says is "days of thunder." felt like that tonight, nights of thunder in richmond. get final thoughts from larry, darrell, mike, from the booth. guys?

we got the fuel mileage. got fuel. i thought they'd run out of gas and david ragan got by me and i came to grips that he would win the race and they made it to the end. >> another good point tonight. >> leading the points. that is good to wake up tomorrow and have the feeling. that will be nice. >> good run. >> thank you. >> chris: thanks, steve, carl. we'll hear from more drivers, look at where the season stands at the moment as we head to next saturday night. darlington. you are watching nascar on fox. kyle busch is your winner tonight. curtis: welcome back to geico it's savings, on the radio. gecko: and the next caller is doug from chico. doug: oh...hey there hey...! gecko: you sound like a happy man. doug: yeah yeah! i saved so much by insuring my motorcycle and rv with geico, i wrote a song about it. gecko: alright, let's hear it! curtis: yeah jam session! doug: one, two... ♪ (singing) i got my motorcycle ♪ ♪ and my rv now i gotmore money. ♪ vo: geico. 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance.
