NASCAR Mailbox: NASCAR’s New DH Rule

Even though Hendrick Motorsports had four cars finish inside the top 10 at Phoenix Raceway, NASCAR announced (March 15) penalties to the four cars plus Justin Haley and Denny Hamlin. The latter admitted that he intentionally let go of the wheel during the last lap of the race even though Ross Chastain and Hamlin made a truce on pit road.

Frontstretch‘s Jared Haas answers this week’s questions on NASCAR Mailbox on Frontstretch‘s YouTube channel.

Also, should NASCAR limit teams to three charters?

The DH rule? Does DH stand for Dick Head? How appropriate.

If you want a NASCAR charter, buy one. If you want an NFL team, buy one. If you want an MLB team, buy one.
Do you see a pattern developing here.
Actually, NASCAR is the only one that allows a way to compete without buying in.


DH stands for Denny Hasbin. As in Hasbin in NASCAR for 20 years and can’t win a championship. He is an angry man and is taking it out on Chastaine. He pulled off the greatest all time move that put Denny out of another championship. With all the up front, No qualifying position NASCAR gave to Denny during covid and he still could not pull it off. I still think he had a lot to do with Kyle not getting his contract. Because of Bubba. But I think Kyle came out on top


It was up if it was up to me I would have charged Denny Hamlin $100,000 for taking out Chastain and I would have suspended him for five races


Why was NASCAR harder Truex Boyer and Michael Waltrip than they are on Denny is that because he’s a team owner. Denny openly admitted he did it
