In previous races, Truex narrowly missed wins due to late pit stops and tire disadvantages. Truex, seething with frustration, retaliated against Larson—a rare moment of general vengeance. Even after the race Truex went down toward Denny Hamlin and slammed the #11 car’s rear bumper three times to express his frustration.

Talking with FOX Truex said, “It’s unfortunate. Unfortunately, this has happened a few times over the years. Just got beat out of the pits and then, I don’t know. He (Hamlin) jumped the start and used me up in Turn 1.”
