Stock Car Scoop: The NASCAR Playoffs Taketh Away From Denny Hamlin

Tyler Reddick‘s late-race restart heroics secured him the victory in NASCAR’s visit to Kansas Speedway on Sunday (Sept. 10).

Adam Cheek and Bryan Nolen break down the No. 45’s victory, his car owner Denny Hamlin‘s second straight week of seeing a dominant run for himself come to naught, who they think will be eliminated next week at Bristol Motor Speedway and more.

Karma bites Denny again! Not too many people are crying!


Good! Glad he didn’t win it.

Terry Jessee

Denny had the fastest car all day. Late caution seems to come out in last 10 laps go figure. Hall of Fame driver and 2nd with wins at Kansas.


Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving guy.

It would have been interesting to see if he’d have wrecked his own car if he could have caught Reddick.

Ronald Thornton

He would’ve wrecked him and during the interview he would have explained why it was Tyler’s fault


Don’t hate the player hate the game

Ronald Thornton

nascar, but who is the player and exactly who am I hatin?

Deacon Blues

Great Scoop, as always, Adam; many thanks to for keeping us up to date! Looking forward to the Bristol race!

Denny Hamlin is nothing but a big cry baby, he sees no problem with wrecking others for the win but if it happens to him the crocodile tears start to flow. Change your diaper Hamlin and keep your pie hole shut….

Kathy Marino

Denny is great and will win a race in the playoff’s . He only has to get his start up better when the starting flag is dropped. He can’t lag back like he is.Go Denny Angels on your shoulders everytime you get in the race car
