Car racing is like a drug. It works fast and gives a high that few sports can match. Its participants and fans swear by it and they love living in the fast lane. Watching these cars and their race drivers whiz past each other at breakneck speeds is a thrill that few sports can match. Maybe rocket racing soon! NASCAR is one of the most famous races on the circuit and like every year people are following it with passion in 2021 as well. The Covid-19 pandemic has not been able to take the shine of NASCAR this year and that’s good news. One of the most talented and exciting car racers on the NASCAR circuit is Denny Hamlin and everybody is watching and asking the question – What happened to Denny Hamlin at the Talladega race?

Winning the Lap that Mattered

There was a lot of hope and expectation from Denny Hamlin for the Talladega race this year. So who won the NASCAR race today? Was it Denny Hamlin or somebody else? Unfortunately for Hamlin’s fans, it was somebody else. It was Brad Keselowski who won the race even though he led only in one lap throughout the race. Luckily for him, it was the lap that mattered in which he came out ahead and breasted the tape. He took advantage of the overtime period and won his sixth race at Talladega Superspeedway. This was his first win and his fourth top-five placing in this 2021 season. Keselowski took the lead in the final lap after seizing an opening and held on to it and finished the Talladega race in the first position.

So what happened to Denny Hamlin at Talladega today? After all, he was the NASCAR Series leader going into this race and also expected to win considering his performances of late. He didn’t win and neither did he come in the top five. This honour went to others. Hamlin earned a double penalty on pit road and lost the initiative. There was a crash too at the Talladega race this time in 2021. Joey Logano’s car flew through the air before crashing down on the road and coming to a fitful stop. There were also seven cautions given in this race at Talladega which certainly made the race eventful. Denny Hamlin ended up in 32nd place at the Talladega race this year 2021. This was indeed a crushing blow to his numerous fans who were expecting him to win the race.

An Excellent Track Record

The experts are a bit surprised that Hamlin was not able to win at Talladega or get a better position. He has been performing very well this season so far. Denny Hamlin’s car is a Toyota and he is a member of a very good team this year. Denny Hamlin’s NASCAR record has been very good so far with two career wins in the completion at Talladega. 2014 spring and 2020 fall which means the most recent race at this venue. This year he has led for the most laps for any driver in this season without actually registering a win. Unfortunately, he has not posted a race win this 2021 yet but the critics and his fans are very hopeful.

Tomorrow is Round the Corner!
