Espn Report: Denny Hamlin insist NASCAR most resolve the issue or he will depart

Denny Hamlin responds to Bubba Wallace parking in Noah Gragson’s pit box following the New Hampshire crash.
Denny Hamlin was perplexed by Bubba Wallace’s decision to park in Noah Gragson’s pit box after a collision between the two drivers ended the No. 23’s afternoon in Loudon.

Perhaps Wallace was inspired by Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s actions during his All-Star Race confrontation with Kyle Busch. Regardless, Hamlin didn’t understand Wallace’s motivations at the time, even if the wreck affected his status in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.

“Yeah, I don’t know why that’s a thing some folks are doing now,” Hamlin remarked on the newest episode of his Actions Detrimental podcast about parking in the pit box of a driver you’re upset with. “I don’t know, if it makes you feel better, I guess, but yeah, I’m looking at the points, and the problem is if you have one more winner outside that gap then the cut-line moves, and then now you’re over a race behind.”Right now, [Joey] Logano is in at -190. Bubba’s -203. But in front of Logano comes [Chris] Buescher, -153, so there’s another race. So, yeah, they’re getting down to it, and they’re going to need to perform really, very well over the next seven

It’s clear that if Hamlin is angry, he will not park in someone’s pit box. Nonetheless, it’s easy to see why Wallace was upset with Gragson, but there’s one major distinction between their incident and the one between Stenhouse Jr. and Busch: Stenhouse Jr. was intentionally wrecked, whereas Wallace was hit by mistake.

Still, Bubba Wallace is an emotional driver who is currently fighting for his life in the rankings. That sometimes leads to drivers doing insane things, as the No. 23 did over the weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Wallace’s No. 23 seems to always have some fantastic paint schemes, and Sunday’s race will be no exception, as Columbia and Luke Combs collaborated to produce a stunning camouflage design for this weekend’s race. It’s not the first time the duo has customized Wallace’s car, but it could be their greatest work.
