Denny Hamlin said that Austin Dillon crowded him on a late race restart, and on the cool-down lap of Saturday night's Nationwide Series race, Hamlin nudged Dillon into the inside wall after Dillon drove up alongside him as the two headed to pit road.
When Hamlin emerged from his car, he had a conversation with Dillon's crew chief, Danny Stockman, and afterwards spoke to ESPN, starting by saying "Well, he's gotta give room. That's why he always gets wrecked at Bristol and a couple other race tracks. First of all he got his ride because of his name. Second of all, you've got to take advantage of the opportunity."
Check out Hamlin's complete comments above. Dillon is the grandson of owner Richard Childress, and drives for Childress in the Nationwide Series. He's scheduled to run another full season in the Nationwide Series in 2013, and is 21 points behind Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Elliott Sadler for the Nationwide points lead.
