Five Things NASCAR Did In 2017 That They Should Be ashamed of And Five Things They Should Be Proud Of

Ashamed of: Not penalizing Chase Elliott for costing Denny Hamlin a shot at the final four.

Ready to get confused? While i do believe Denny Hamlin was wrong when he took out Chase Elliott in the closing laps of the fall race at Martinsville, i also think that Chase Elliott wasted no time trying to settle the score. The problem with that, at least for Chase Elliott fans that want to valiantly defend the sports new savior, he also make a calculated move and waited for the most opportune time to do it.

Of course that was when Denny Hamlin was laps away from making the first final four of his career, and Chase Elliott raced him very roughly for a critical position. Unfortunately for Hamlin, the rough racing resulted in Hamlin blowing a tire and handing his final four spot to Brad Keselowski and only minutes later fans witnessed Chase Elliott be robbed of a final four for a second straight time.

Again, it was a calculated move and no amount of its just racing or this that and the other removes the fact that Chase Elliott also cost Denny Hamlin a championship. And to The Chase Elliott fans that see this and are enraged right now, go repeat that statement while looking in a mirror and see if you can still look yourself in the eyes.

Good luck!
