I personally think "Nascar" has gone too far,Denny is entitled to his opinion and it was'nt even a bad one ! I believe "Nascar" should remember who the people are behind the wheel it is important that they are comfortable and everytime we turn around there is more rules REALLY when is it ENOUGH "GOOO DENNY"

Good for Denny to stick to his guns by refusing to pay the fine. Nascrap has to garnish his pay. I guess they have to make up for the loss of ticket sales some way. They are also doing their best to silence the fans by claiming that their comment section is down on their website. It has been like that since the Danica 500. I guess they aren't able to get any of their products running properly.

Danny Hamilton sucks!!! He need to win a championship before he can talk crap. He's had a poor attitude ever since he messed up that one year he shoulda won the title. His nerves were rattled by 5x. If anyone should talk smack it be the 48.

Actually Denny did not "Talk Crap", he answered a question that was asked during an interview. He did not get out of the car in winners circle after the first race ever for the original COT and say that the car was crap and he hated to drive it. I am no longer a Hamlin fan, for the same reasons you gave about his attitude and when it happened, my reason for not rooting for him is that he threw his original Crew Chief, Mike Ford, under the bus. I have watched Denny race since his early days racing go karts at Capital City Speedway in Ashland Va. and I have been in the pits for his Late Model Stock Car Race at Richmond Va. every year and I can tell you that the money has given Denny the big head. If you want to see a real NASCAR victim google Carl Long and see what NASCAR has done to him.
