Denny Hamlin bumped Chase Elliott out of the lead at Martinsville back in late October. The bump, under braking, sent Chase Elliott into the wall. Denny Hamlin didn’t win that night, he was later moved himself.
The next week as Texas, nothing special happened. The two drivers found themselves racing, side by side. What it over?
No. The next week at Phoenix Raceway, Hamlin was pinched into the wall by Chase Elliott. 10 laps later, Denny Hamlin blew a tire, taking him out of the race and out of the Championship 4.
Earlier in the week, Denny Hamlin was asking about how he races Chase Elliott in the future. “The way we race each other has been set and will be set for a while,” Hamlin responded.
Both drivers missed the Championship 4. You could easily say they took each other out of that battle. They each finished 5th and 6th in the standings.
