Typically our Sundays are all about fans fighting each other, but that wasn’t the case over at Martinsville Speedway where a HEATED Chase Elliott fan got close enough to Denny Hamlin to give him a piece of his mind.

For those who don’t give a damn about NASCAR, this all stems from Hamlin wrecking Elliott (race leader at the time) with just three laps left in today’s First Data 500. This could have been Elliott’s first career victory, but he ended up placing 27th after a restart, while Hamlin finished seventh.

Hamlin and Elliott exchanged words after the race, but that pales in comparison to this No. 24 superfan coming to his boy’s defense:

This fan says Chase Elliott is "just a kid" and Denny Hamlin is "a punk."

Hamlin took to Twitter postrace to apologize:
