Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin are developing quite the feud in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Former teammates at Joe Gibbs Racing the two have had their share of disagreements this season starting from the season opening race at Daytona.
After the completion of the Daytona 500 Hamlin went to twitter to complain about the driving of Logano. Hamlin believes the maneuvers of Logano prevented his lane from advancing at the end of the race. After the two took turns calling each other a genius things died down until Sunday at Bristol.
Battling for position Hamlin pulled the bump-and-run on Logano sending the No. 22 Ford into the wall for the eight caution of the day. Logano’s car received damage to the back end but was repaired by his race team.
Logano worked his way back up to the front of the field even getting behind Hamlin on the final restart of the race. Logano bumped the No. 11 of Hamlin into the back of Brad Keselowski who restarted second.
After the race Logano sought out Hamlin finding his car in the garage.
After the race Hamlin says that Logano told him that “he was coming for me.” Though he said he was not concerned. “I usually don’t see him so it’s not a factor.”
UPDATE: Logano and Hamlin trade Twitter jabs
