To the surprise of no one, the fallout from Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano’s scuffle last Sunday at Martinsville Speedway dominated the news cycle Friday at Texas Motor Speedway.
Logano took exception to a late-race incident in which Hamlin pinched him into the wall. After discussing the matter on pit road following the race, Logano shoved Hamlin and started to walk away. When Hamlin went after Logano, crewmen stepped in to restrain him. One of Logano’s crew members, tire specialist Dave Nichols Jr., was suspended for this weekend’s race for slinging Hamlin to the ground.
“He really breeds those type of things. He’s got into it with a ton of people,” Hamlin said Friday. “I don’t know what it is, but I certainly don’t agree with it for sure.”
Hamlin also blamed Logano’s crew chief, Todd Gordon, for lacking control over his team, escalating the incident. And when asked if he ever thinks that Logano knows he can ruffle him, Hamlin replied: “No. He’s not that smart.”
