Hamlin better watch his back, or the NASCAR Gestapo will start screwing with him. BTW the stickers of the duel exhaust pipes on the new cars are so cool!

Why only $25,000. Should be $50,000. Coach Gibbs needs to take him to the woodshed.

NASCAR has done more to "denigrate" the sport with IT'S attitude towards Hamlin !

I have been checking every day since the Daytona 500. They don't want to hear anything negative and the only way they can avoid it is to make some lame excuse. So sad!

I've been trying really hard to keep my interest in NASCAR; and the new cars haven't helped much, unless you like single-file driving (not racing). I'm mostly turned off by a couple of really overly talkative television commentators (KP especially drives me nuts). Now, this thing with Denny Hamlin may be the icing on the cake. What he said was so benign it could have slipped by even a casual viewer. And: What does NASCAR do? Throws him under the bus and brings more attention to the comment, and the cars, than they ever could have imagined. They ought to fine themselves (for stupidity at least, or faulty reasoning at best) and offer Denny an apology.

Thats rite, they took down the fan comment section over at nascar.com bcuz every single person that was posting had something negative (but true) to say about the sport. So long nascar... you just lost another fan!
