Hamlin's lead shrinks after Edwards win

Points leader Denny Hamlin was dominating Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Phoenix International Raceway, but a fuel miscalculation led to victory for Carl Edwards and a tightened Chase for the Cup.

Hamlin was up almost 60 points in the Chase standings over Jimmie Johnson before he pitted for gas with 14 laps remaining. Hamlin now takes a slim 15-point lead over Johnson into next week's season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Harvick is still in reach at 46 points out.

Hamlin wound up 12th, Johnson was fifth and Harvick was sixth. Edwards broke a 70-race winless streak.
