Denny Hamlin wrecked into Ross Chastain's car at the Phoenix Raceway. However, the biggest problem came later. Hamlin admitted he did it intentionally on his podcast "Actions Detrimental". After that, NASCAR had a late reaction and decided to give him a penalty.
He was fined $50,000 and penalized 25 points. There was a great deal of reaction from famous NASCAR drivers, as well as NASCAR fans around the globe. In his message to Hamlin, Kyle Busch, who is one of the biggest stars in NASCAR, was direct and honest: “Keep your mouth shut”.- Busch said.
Busch believes that NASCAR drivers need to show more respect to one another in order to succeed. When it comes to racing, it is inevitable that you will have to show your bad side sometimes. However, these conflicts are unnecessary in the end.
“That’s where the problem lies. Nobody gives two shits about anybody else. It’s just a problem where everybody takes advantage of everybody as much as they can. We’re all selfish, granted, but there was an etiquette that once did live here”.
Kyle Busch gives advice
There is a tendency for Kyle Busch to want to give advice to young drivers, but he also wants to give advice to more experienced drivers in this area. It seems that they do not want to listen to such things and that they focus only on their goal, and they seem not to be interested in listening to such things.
“I had a teammate that I talked to as a kid that raced for me for two years in the Truck series who I got into it with last week. I tried to talk to him about those exact same issues and lo and behold it happened to me three races into a new year somewhere else. I’m done talking to them”.
