Denny Hamlin has been cleared to race in this weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Martinsville Speedway. Hamlin had to withdraw from last Sunday’s race at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana California only minutes before the start of the race due to vision problems.
Driver Sam Hornish Jr. stepped in for Hamlin who was taken to a local hospital and held overnight. Initial reports were that Hamlin’s issues were caused by a sinus infection. However while undergoing tests at the hospital a small piece metal was found; Hamlin immediately felt relief and had no further issues.
Joe Gibbs Racing t released a statement Wednesday with the details on Hamlin’s issue. MORE>>>
