I don't believed it was a rigged race, I just think it was the perfect scenario. And somewhere between turns 7-11 Denny said "why not?"
Class act Denny Hamlin.
Denny gave that up in my opinion. I feel the announcers had believed that as well. They questioned why he chose to take the corner wide. Jeff then tried to play it off as wheelhop on the replay. Meanwhile Denny said there was no wheelhop at all.
The bigger question is why they threw the debris caution right after Tony was getting off pit road.
