Denny Hamlin texted fellow NASCAR car owner Justin Marks after the incidents at WWT Raceway
Last weekend, the NASCAR Cup Series visited WWT Raceway in St. Louis for the first time. It didn’t take long for the drama to begin.
Ross Chastain put the bumper to Denny Hamlin and sent him into the wall. Hamlin’s car was damaged and well off the pace but he remained on the track to create a headache for Chastain.
In the laps that followed, Denny Hamlin made his car extremely wide. Every time Chastain tried to pass, Hamlin weaved across the track to throw blocks. He even brake checked Chastain, multiple times, in the center of the corner.
After the race, Chastain took full blame for more than one on-track incident. Meanwhile, Hamlin essentially promised payback in the future, in a moment where it’s really going to matter.
Trackhouse Racing team owner Justin Marks was shown shaking his head and halfway laughing on the pit box as this unfolded on Sunday. He’s commented on the incident with his driver…
NASCAR team owner Justin Marks comments
“I’m here for it,” Justin Marks told Sirius XM NASCAR Radio.
“I”m ready. I mean, Denny’s texting me right now, as we’re talking actually.”
“The drama, the controversy. I guess, there’s a lot of talk in the sport. There’s a lot of time we spend telling everybody what we’re going to do. And not a lot of time doing it.”
“So, if they want to play, it will be fun. I’m a huge fan of the sport and I love entertaining fans, doing things out there that gets the conversations going.”
“So, if we want to battle, lets battle. I’m not going to shy away from that. At the end of the day, I’m also not driving the car myself.”
Marks concluded, “We’ll see what happens, I guess.”
Earlier this week, NASCAR also commented on the feud. That stated that they had plans to sit face to face with both drivers.
