Denny Hamlin Wants Chase Elliott Suspended: ‘He Shouldn’t Be Racing’

AN ANGRY DENNY HAMLIN called for NASCAR to suspend Chase Elliott, claiming the Georgia driver intentionally wrecked him during Monday’s rain-delayed Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. “I got right-rear hooked in the middle of the straightaway,” Hamlin said after walking from the track’s infield care center. “Right rear hooks are absolutely unacceptable. It’s a tantrum and he shouldn’t be racing next week.” The two were racing for position when Elliott brushed the outside wall. When the two charged off turn four, Elliott’s Chevrolet clipped Hamlin’s right rear, turning the Toyota into the frontstretch’s outside wall on lap 186 of the 400-lap race. Hamlin’s Toyota took a vicious hit and was demolished. Elliott was also eliminated from the race.This content is imported from twitter.

Exact same,” Hamlin said. “He shouldn’t be racing. It’s a tantrum.” Elliott disagreed with Hamlin after emerging from the infield care center. “The (No.) 11 (Hamlin) ran us up in the fence and once you tear the right side off these things it’s kind of over. You can’t drive them anymore,” Elliott said. “It was just an unfortunate circumstance.” Elliott and Hamlin finished 34th and 35th, respectively, in the 37-car field.
