What I heard was that Tony and Ryan have different styles of driving in the draft, and they didn't want to chance taking each other out. Tony chose Gilliland and Ryan chose Hamlin before the race because they were both a better fit. If anything, I think they were trying to protect each other. They sure didn't want the entire SHR team wiped out in one wreck.
