The feud between Chase Elliott and Denny Hamlin might not be over, and it’s possible Elliott decides to retaliate in one of the next three races.
Hamlin was asked about it on SiriusXM Radio’s “Tradin’ Paint,” and he said he isn’t too worried about how Elliott will race him.
Hamlin said wrecks happen in racing, and it won’t be the first nor last a wreck happens in a big moment.
“I’ve told them, however you want to race me is absolutely fine,” Hamlin said. “I’ll be OK with that. I’m not worried about it. I have no time to be worried about anything like that. We have two more races to get ourselves into the final four and Texas is the first step to doing that.”
Hamlin said he’s tried to reach out to Elliott, but Elliott hasn’t been particularly interested in speaking to him about the incident.
Hamlin said he isn’t worried about Elliott trying to wreck him, but it will still probably be in the back of his mind at Texas and Phoenix in the coming weeks.
Both drivers are still fighting are a spot in the final four at Homestead, and these are two pivotal races for both of them. A retaliation from Elliott wouldn’t be surprising given that Hamlin ended his chances of winning last week, and it will be worth monitoring the two drivers this Sunday.
