CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Denny Hamlin says most drivers don't respect Brad Keselowski, and it's over the lack of remorse he shows for his aggressive driving.
Hamlin also says the consensus is that Keselowski did not have enough space to attempt a pass of Jeff Gordon in the closing laps at Texas.
Keselowski's bid to squeeze his car through a gap between Gordon and Jimmie Johnson after a restart led to contact between Gordon and Keselowski. It caused Gordon to spin after his tire went down, and he went from racing for the win to a 29th-place finish on Sunday.
Gordon confronted Keselowski on pit road, and Kevin Harvick shoved Keselowski from behind to trigger a brawl between teams that left both Gordon and Keselowski slightly bloodied.
