Denny Hamlin Must Start Sensitivity Training by End of Week UPDATE

UPDATE: Denny Hamlin said he understood NASCAR’s response to a tweet he sent this week and why the sanctioning body took action.

“I respect their decision. I understand where they’re at with it,” Hamlin said Saturday. “I’ve done my own sensitivity training. I did diversity training on my own when I started this race team. I went with the best in the country and spent time with them and I understand it all. I didn’t think this fell into that category, but certainly I understand their decision and it is what it is.”
