Hamlin was penalized after he admitted to intentionally wrecking Ross Chastain in the NASCAR Cup Series race at Phoenix on Sunday.
NASCAR has decided to take action, docking the No. 11 car with a 25 driver points and fining Hamlin $50k.

Hamlin candidly admitted that he intentionally fenced Ross Chastain at Phoenix, while speaking in the “Actions Detrimental with Denny Hamlin” podcast, the JGR’s No. 11 driver revealed that he did it on purpose.
My crew chief told me that there were 18 cars on the lead lap,” Hamlin said. “At that point, I said, ‘All right, well, I’m probably — live looking at a picture —
I’m probably running sixth or seventh. I’m about to get passed by everybody behind me who’s on fresh tires. I’m about to finish in the mid-teens.’
“And I said, ‘You’re coming with me, buddy.’ It wasn’t a mistake. No, it wasn’t a mistake. I let the wheel go, and I said, ‘He’s coming with me.’”

Honestly, NASCAR should have put an end to Hamlin BS last year. He, or any other driver that intentionally wrecks another driver should be parked. But NASCAR won’t do anything because Hamlin fits their WOKE agenda. He proves he’s a POS just like his driver, and I’m not talking about Reddick.
Good luck with that appeal to the people. Your a hypocrite, you can dish it out but can’t take it yourself. Get it right Dopey!
