Sparks Fly In Fontana
The Joey Logano saga continues, this time with Tony Stewart throwing some punches his way and Denny Hamlin being injured in a last lap debacle.
Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin were one and two, neck and neck, going into the last two corners, when Logano collected Hamlin and sent himself into the nearest outside wall and Hamlin into the inside wall. Hamlin was taken to the care center in an ambulance after collapsing outside of his Toyota.
During the wreck, Kyle Busch squeaked by the outside of the feud and took the checkered flag coming out of turn four very hard.
Tony Stewart was angry about a block that Logano threw at the beginning of the final restart with just a few laps to go. Stewart had nothing but obviously negative things to say after the race, saying he was going to “whip his ass” after some other choice words.
The tempers have a chance to simmer down over the Easter break, but the boiling point will be tested once again in Virginia at Martinsville, where Denny Hamlin is very strong.
We’ll see what happens, be sure to tune in.
