Joey Logano confronts Denny Hamlin after race (Video)

Joey Logano Denny HamlinJoey Logano confronted ex-teammate Denny Hamlin after the Food City 500 Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway following an incident between the two on the track.

Logano was challenging Jeff Gordon for the lead on lap 348 when Hamlin nudged him. Logano’s No. 22 car went into the wall and spun out. Logano managed to get back into the top 10 despite getting spun out by Hamlin. He finished 17th while Hamlin finished 23rd.

After the race, Logano, who was teammates with Hamlin at Joe Gibbs Racing from 2009-2012, confronted Hamlin by the 11 car.

“I meant to run into him,” Hamlin told FOX’s Matt Yocum. “I didn’t mean to spin him out, but his day was fine. He still had a bad day, anyway, for whatever reason. We finished bad and he finished bad. It’s even.”

Hamlin also says Logano told him he was “coming for” him.

Logano kept the details of his conversation with Hamlin private, though he did tweet at Hamlin and receive a response:

Denny Hamlin will caddy for Bubba Watson at Masters par-3 tournament

When Bubba Watson decided to buy the Dukes of Hazard General Lee car for $100,000 a few weeks ago, he bridged the gap between the world of golf and the world of racing. Not only did he get himself a sweet ride, he also entered into an agreement with his good buddy Denny Hamlin. According to From the Marbles, Hamlin agreed to get Watson a fire suit and helmet to match the General Lee. In return, Watson had to let Denny caddy for him at Augusta. Looks like it’s happening.

Of course, Bubba will need his real caddy for the actual Masters tournament. I don’t know if any of you follow golf, but that’s kind of an important event and Watson may need some advice that a NASCAR driver wouldn’t be able to provide. Or maybe Hamlin is more of a golf genius than I am giving him credit for. You never know. Either way, he’ll only be holding Watson’s bag for the par-3 tourney earlier in the week.

“He’s going to let me hit a shot,” Hamlin, who has never been to Augusta, said with excitement. “How nervous do you think I’m going to be?”

Hamlin’s handicap is somewhere in the mid-teens, which is solid for a casual golfer. Depending on how things go, Bubba may decide to ditch his caddy for the main event and bring Denny on board. Stranger things have happened at Augusta. No, you’re right — they haven’t.
