Even after starting second and finishing third in the season opener at Daytona International Speedway, Denny Hamlin was not happy after the race when he and Darrell Wallace Jr. had a post-race confrontation.
All last year, folks commented that the racing in NASCAR’s top series was boring. Most of them pointed to the late-race action at Martinsville Speedway last April. On Sunday, at near 200 mph, they saw more of the same. This time it was Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin, fresh off a dustup at Bristol Motor Speedway where both drivers pointed fingers.
Saturday night Denny Hamlin announced on Twitter that he has resigned to continue racing the No. 11 FedEx Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing. Hamlin, who sits 8th in the 2012 Sprint Cup Series has spent his entire career with Joe Gibbs Racing.
