Joey Logano has made very few friends in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series garage the last few weeks. At Bristol Logano was wrecked by Denny Hamlin. Logano confronted Hamlin after the race in a feud that has carried over for months both on the track and on social media.
Sunday at Auto Club Speedway it was Tony Stewart’s turn to confront Hamlin. On a restart with ten laps to go, Logano moved down and blocked Stewart on the apron of the track. Stewart was never able to regain his momentum while Logano moved up and battled Hamlin for the lead. Hamlin and Logano would get together while racing for the win on the final turn of the final lap and crash. Logano was able to make it across the line to finish sixth, while Hamlin was sent careening into the inside wall and eventually to a local hospital for evaluation.
Stewart meanwhile finished 22. After the race, Stewart pulled his No. 14 Chevy in front of Logano’s Ford. The drivers climbed from their cars and Stewart immediately went to Logano and the fists soon flew. The pair was quickly separated by crewmembers and NASCAR officials. Stewart stormed off while Logano stood seemingly in disbelief. MORE>>>
