Stage 3: Elliott had the lead with about 10 laps to go, but Kenseth passed him and was able to hold off the youngster for the win.
The 2003 champion, Kenseth isn't getting a spectacular or months-long sendoff, but going out with a trip to Victory Lane in his second-to-last race - ending a winless streak that dated back to July 2016 - is ideal for the driver who the sport is going to miss. Larson was eliminated from the playoffs when his engine blew at Kansas, but he can still play spoiler by stealing the stage points other drivers so desperately need.
For the fourth time in the 2017 playoffs, Chase Elliott finished second in a NASCAR Cup race.
Stage 1: Kyle Larson hung around the front of the pack for most of the first stage, but he finally passed Hamlin with a couple to go to win Stage 1.
Elliott finished second Sunday, failing to advance to the title race but was asked about nudging Hamlin out of the way.
Stage 2 will end on Lap 150.
Hamlin erased all of Keselowski's points lead following the second stage.
Matt Kenseth might have gotten the final victory of his Cup Series career on Sunday.
35 laps to go: Denny Hamlin's chances of advancing go up in smoke as his tire blows and his auto slams the wall. Keselowski entered the race 19 points ahead of Hamlin and 22 points ahead of Blaney.
