NASCRAP is a giant JOKE that why all the fans have disapeared


Denny would be singing a different tune if Nascar had actually called him for passing on the apron when he had plenty of room to back above the yellow line. What a crock.


Of course he does.


DENNY EXACT WORD …. “Just was able to overcome. This is one of those that you don’t plan on winning, but we got away with one today.”
Yup he sure did NASCAR ?
