This past weekend’s race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway gave fans several talking points. Among them was Ryan Blaney finally breaking his winless streak, Denny Hamlin and Chase Elliott clashing, and many more. There was also a minor incident between Bubba Wallace and Aric Almirola during the rain stoppage period.
