Denny Hamlin carries momentum into Richmond Cup Series playoff race

“It was great to see Denny win,” Richmond Raceway president Dennis Bickmeier said. “He grew up sitting in those grandstands watching NASCAR here and wanting to be a NASCAR driver. He’s had a really good year. He just hadn’t gotten the checkered flag and gotten to Victory Lane and he checked that box in Darlington to kick off the playoffs.”

Bickmeier knows Hamlin will be hungry to do it again on Saturday.

“He’s not going to come to Richmond and take it easy,” Bickmeier said. “We know that. He loves this place. He’s won here multiple times.”

Kyle Busch fined for violations at Darlington Raceway

NASCAR 08 September, 2021 - 09:10am

Joe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch has been penalized for his actions after a mid-race wreck in Sunday’s Cook Out Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, NASCAR announced Tuesday.

The pilot of the No. 18 Toyota Camry violated Sections 12.1.a; 12.5.2.5.a; 12.8.a of the NASCAR Rule Book and has been fined $50,000 for a safety violation, actions detrimental to stock car racing and violating the NASCAR member conduct guidelines.

Busch’s car made significant contact with the outside retaining wall in Turn 2 after Lap 125 contact from the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet of non-playoff driver Austin Dillon. Busch drove away with heavy damage but parked in the garage to end his race. While pulling into the garage area, Busch ran over several orange cones at a considerable amount of speed in the vicinity of spectators.

NASCAR Senior Vice President of Competition Scott Miller talked with SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Tuesday morning about Busch’s behavior.

“It was a situation that could have been bad. Fortunately nobody got hit or anything like that,” Miller said. “It all worked out, but putting people in harm’s way for no reason is something we take seriously.”
