Following last year’s Coke 600, drama ensued even after the checkered flag was waved. Denny Hamlin persistently voiced his allegations, claiming that a Hendrick driver had deliberately caused a wreck. Demanding a thorough examination of the incident, Hamlin called for appropriate action against Chase Elliott.

After meticulously reviewing the SMT data to make a decision, NASCAR found Elliott guilty of intentionally causing the wreck. Consequently, NASCAR suspended Elliott for the next race, fueling further outrage among Elliott’s supporters.

The right rear hook by Chase Elliott

Chase Elliott and Denny Hamlin had a dramatic encounter during the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

\Elliott’s car slapped the outside wall near the start-finish line, and his car made contact with Hamlin’s Toyota, sending Hamlin slamming into the wall. The front end of Hamlin’s car was smashed, and Elliott’s Chevrolet also suffered damage.
