There was a ‘Burnouts on Broadway’ performance in Nashville, with several NASCAR drivers involved, including Denny Hamlin.
All the 2021 champions from all the NASCAR – Cup, Xfinity and Truck and ARCA Series, were present in the event. As the drivers did their performance turn by turn, there were cars that had blown transmission and some drivers were not able to drive their car back due to the performance they put on show.
As for Hamlin, when he tried to do a burnout, he hit the walls and his car lifted off the ground.

Fortunately, there was no harm and Hamlin continued his performance.
As for the NASCAR fans, they were quick to mock the Joe Gibbs Racing drivers, particularly bringing to light his feud with Alex Bowman during the 2021 season. Hamlin was so furious that he called Bowman a “hack”.

“I will never be ‘The King’ or ‘The Intimidator’” – Jimmie Johnson steps down from the GOAT debate
One user trolled that it was Bowman’s fault for Hamlin hitting the wall. Another user mocked Hamlin for his lack of a championship.
Looks like someone threw a fit for not winning a championship https://t.co/0GVAAA5esy

Not having a championship has hurt Hamlin’s reputation as one of the best drivers in the series right now. But, if we look at last season, there are no drivers as consistent as him. But unfortunately, he couldn’t win the championship on both occasions despite qualifying for the Championship 4 race.
But if he can keep up his performances as last year, he would certainly be challenging for the title this time around.
