“You’re a veteran, you shouldn’t be driving like that!” the fans yells to Denny Hamlin.

That’s when a crew member of Joe Gibbs Racing stepped in to push the fan away. Additionally, the Sheriff stepped into the scene. The two of them escorted the fan away from Hamlin.

“Dirt dog,” the fans states as he’s escorted off pit lane and out of Martinsville Speedway.
