Denny Hamlin: Fined $25,000 for Comments
Update: NASCAR has fined driver Hamlin $25,000 for comments he made following the March 3 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Phoenix International Raceway, NASCAR PR reports.

Recommendation: Hamlin violated NASCAR's speech guidelines by making some comments that were critical of the new Gen-6 car and it's racing characteristics after the Phoenix race. These were not the first comments we've heard this season about the inability to pass other competitors, but Hamlin's comments were directed straight at the new Gen-6 car. This is a violation of NASCAR's guidelines for speech denigrating the racing product.
