Daniel Suarez on Denny Hamlin's penalty: He made a decision to look cool in the media

After sending Ross Chastain to the wall, Denny Hamlin decided to speak about the incident on his Action Detrimental podcast. Denny Hamlin pleaded guilty following the incident. Many people were still surprised by the late reaction of NASCAR in response to the incident.

It was decided that 35 points would be taken away from him as a result of this and a fine of $50,000 would be imposed on him. As a result, Hamlin decided to appeal the decision that had been made. Chastain's teammate, Daniel Suarez, is of the opinion that Hamlin shouldn't have made such comments in the media in the first place.

Suarez believes that Hamlin has found a problem for himself. “If I only see the race, it’s more like a racing contact. There wasn’t anything super intentional, in my opinion… said what he said, asking for trouble…made a decision…He made a decision to look cool in the media, and that’s what he gets,” said Daniel Suarez.

Atlanta will be an interesting challenge for Suarez. The race will be a significant challenge for him, but he is confident that he will be able to meet these requirements. “Of course. Atlanta is an interesting race track.

It’s almost like it can’t decide what it wants to be. It’s a 1.5-mile track that races like Talladega and Daytona. We have had some good results there since the reconfiguration. I think the key is survival, and hopefully, we can do that and get another good finish,” Suarez said.

“We have run well. The cars and pit stops are fast, and we are learning. We have things we have to get better at and clean up, but we are making progress. I think we are going to have a lot of fun this season if we keep doing what we are doing,” Suarez concluded.
