Denny Hamlin’s and Kurt Busch’s cars collided shortly after a late restart Sunday at ISM Raceway in the Round of 8 elimination race, with the resulting damage ending Busch’s attempt at advancing to the Championship 4. The disappointment was evident in Busch’s face as he gave his post-wreck interview to NBC and other media. Stewart-Haas Racing co-owner Tony Stewart was seen consoling Busch.
But according to Hamlin, the veteran Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers bumped into each other again later and this time the result was more pleasant.
Me and Kurt spoke at the plane and shared a beer afterwards. Got nothing but respect for him and his guys. We will head to homestead and try to finish off strong.

Good to see the two veterans were able to resolve the situation.
