Hamlin and Bowman were battling for the top 10 on lap 41st. However, Hamlin gave a slight push to the back of Bowman, and he almost hit the wall. However, Bowman lost so many places after this incident. Things got worse for him, as his car caught fire on the 45th lap due to an apparent engine failure, which eventually ended his race. 

Bowman vented his frustration on social media

Later, Bowman took to his Instagram story and wrote, “We had a fine day going. We were gonna end up on 11th in front of the top 10 and yeah I got spun out. Quite sure it sounded like Denny shot just the brakes up, missed the corner and I helped him make the corner. But somehow, that whole change broke something in the engine or something was already going wrong.”
