Then, they came to pit road for TV interviews. Shortly after the interviews, a Chase Elliott fan approached Denny Hamlin.
“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.
“Get him out of here,” Denny Hamlin calmly states to his crew member.
“A dirty veteran! Learn how to drive,” the fan yells out some more as Denny Hamlin watches the fan get removed.
Matt Weaver caught it on camera. Watch the video below.
