Hamlin: ‘How Can You Wreck Someone You Don’t Touch?’

LONG POND, Pa. — Denny Hamlin didn’t mince words after his battle with Kyle Larson late in Sunday’s HighPoint.com 400 at Pocono Raceway. After the two went door-to-door through turn one on a restart with six laps to go, the result was Hamlin and Larson drifting up the track, with Larson’s No. A visibly frustrated Larson felt he “got used up” by Hamlin, and believes he wasn’t raced with respect. Earlier in the 160-lap race, Hamlin got into an incident with Larson’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate Alex Bowman, where Bowman felt Hamlin tapped the rear of the No. I put both those guys, the 48 (Bowman) and 5 (Larson), in an aero situation,” Hamlin said. While racing off turn two on the final lap, Larson and Hamlin tangled, resulting in the No. “Today, I didn’t even get to race him,” Larson said.
