CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - David Reutimann says he is "mad as heck" at Denny Hamlin over their wreck at Pocono Raceway.
Hamlin ran into Reutimann midway through Monday's race, and the
accident essentially ended Reutimann's chances to run for the championship this season.
Reutimann was 13th in the standings. His 29th-place finish Monday dropped him to 16th in points. The top 12 drivers make the Chase, which begins in six weeks.
Hamlin went on to win Monday's race and sent Reutimann an apology text afterward. Reutimann says it didn't make him feel any better.
