NASCAR Mailbox: The Crab Mentality

Denny Hamlin battled hard with Ryan Blaney on the restart with less than 40 laps to go Sunday (Oct. 22) at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

While Blaney and Hamlin battled, Christopher Bell passed those drivers for the lead on the bottom lane. Will this crab-in-a-bucket mentality hurt drivers in the long run?

When will Homestead repave the track? The track was last repaved more 20 years ago.

Hamlin is a hack. He did that move on Blaney this week, same thing on Larson awhile back. Denny Hamlin pulls that move all the time but when someone does it to Denny he cries fowl and whines forever.


I’m sure he has a favourite cheese to go with his whine! I love when he gets cheesed off.


Lol I really hope he gets cheesed off this weekend, big time.
