Denny Hamlin and Chase Elliott were left unhappy with Ross Chastain actions early in Sunday’s Cup Series race at Gateway Motorsport Park following a series of incidents between the trio.
Hamlin was called out by Joey Logano heading into this Sunday race for his “Dirty Move” last week in Charlotte where Hamlin clipped Logano Pit Crew member.With Ross Chastain Stuck behind the 23XI co-owner for several laps, Chastain knocked the back bumper of Denny’s No. 11 Toyota ride on Turn 1 at Lap 64 while battling it out for sixth.
That sent Hamlin into the SAFER Barrier between Turns 1 and 2 with the right side of his car, heavily hampering Hamlin’s chances of winning the Cup Series’ inaugural trip to Gateway.
According to Motorsport reporter Jordan Bianchi the Joe Gibbs Racing driver Denny Hamlin was told by NAsSAR “that’s enough”.

“I hope they’re proud in the tower of our superstars” – Chastain.
Ross Chastain added he’ll handle the matter after the race.
