Hamlin says he was brake-checked; Harvick says he wasn’t
On lap 380, Denny Hamlin was throwing some light bumps to the back bumper of Kevin Harvick. This was after the two drivers exchanged positions on the race track while inside the top-10.
However, as Denny Hamlin was attempting to re-pass Harvick he was hit with an abrupt stop sign. Kevin Harvick hit the brakes and Denny Hamlin ran into the back of him down the straight-away.
From there, Denny Hamlin made a pit stop then returned the following lap to repair front end damage. He was able to rally back and finish just outside the top-10 in the 12th position.
