Denny Hamlin Delivers a Message About 1-Race Suspension

Bubba Wallace received a one-race suspension after intentionally wrecking Kyle Larson at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

 45 Toyota Camry in Martinsville, but Denny Hamlin knows there's still a lot of work to do.

Hamlin met with NASCAR media members at Homestead-Miami Speedway on October 22, 

and they discussed Wallace's on-track actions and his subsequent suspension.

 He explained that he understands why his driver was angry with Larson, 

but he also knows that this wreck will damage Wallace's reputation in what has been a career season.

"I think that's a shame that he's made some huge progress since Nashville and as a driver, and he's now a perennial, top 10 running guy," Hamlin explained. 

"And it's a shame because people aren't going to focus on how much better he is than the driver over the years. 

They're going to focus on this one event, this one millisecond time he did a bad one." Decided. And so it will just take some time for him to mature and change that narrative."

NASCAR announced a one-race suspension with its weekly penalty report. The sanctioning body said the driver of the No. 45 Toyota 

Camry violated sections 4.3A, 4.4C&E of the NASCAR rulebook that covers the member code of conduct.

The only penalty issued to Wallace was suspension. There was no penalty or loss of any points. 

However, Hamlin revealed during his media availability that the team handled the matter as well. 

He would give no more details than to say that he "handled things internally above and beyond what NASCAR did".

"I don't think there will be any other result," Hamlin said. "We deal with this internally above and beyond NASCAR. 

So he understands where I stand, where the team stands, the values ​​we want to represent on the racetrack. 

And he didn't represent that well last week. But in the grand scheme of things, we're very pleased with his progress.

 And he knows he has some stuff to work on when he gets out of his car.
