Denny Hamlin has sights set on Richmond return

When the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads to Richmond Denny Hamlin wants to be back behind the wheel. Hamlin who was initially ruled out for six weeks is hopeful that he will be behind the wheel of the No. 11 for the April 27th event. Returning at Richmond would be two weeks earlier this first reported. Hamlin’s eventual return will be dictated by doctors. Hamlin will be at Martinsville...

Stewart, Logano say they have moved on from fracas

Tony Stewart and Joey Logano say their dustup is over. They just haven't said it to each other. The drivers tangled two weeks ago at the end of the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at California, where Stewart thought Logano had blocked him in the closing laps. Stewart parked his car near Logano's and approached him. There was some shoving, but crew members broke it up quickly. Stewart...

Hamlin looks to learn during absence

Telling a racer to slow down isn't easy. Especially a race-car driver accustomed to traveling at speeds of 190 mph. And backing down wasn't an easy concept for Denny Hamlin to grasp. Then he discovered how severe the consequences from his grim wreck at Auto Club Speedway on March 24 might have been. Hamlin, 32, suffered a compression fraction to his L1 vertebra. "...

Denny Hamlin hoping for early recovery

If it was up to him, Denny Hamlin's fractured vertebra in his lower back would not cause him to miss any races. ''I can get in my car right now and go; I feel like I can get in my car right now and win Martinsville,'' Hamlin said Wednesday. But he can't race this weekend at Martinsville. He'll be watching from pit road as Mark Martin drives his car,...

Crash course in racetrack etiquette

It's been 37 years since Elton John first sang "Sorry seems to be the hardest word." It might take the same amount of time before Denny Hamlin hears an apology from Joey Logano. "I thought it was just hard racing, to be honest with you," Logano said of the closing laps with Hamlin at Auto Club Speedway two weeks ago. "I felt like I just got in too hard...

Opportunities differ for Martin, Vickers in No. 11

The drivers replacing the injured Denny Hamlin view their opportunities differently. Mark Martin hopes jumping in Hamlin's No. 11 Toyota at Martinsville Speedway this weekend provides a chance to change his career of disappointment on the shortest, trickiest oval in NASCAR's top series. Hamlin has won four times in 15 starts at Martinsville. Martin has won twice in 48 starts...

NASCAR: Martinsville not a good spot for Tony Stewart to send payback to Logano

The logical place for Tony Stewart to get payback and send a message to Joey Logano that he’s not going to stand behind what he did to him last race at Fontana would be this weekend’s race at Martinsville Speedway. The track is short at just .526-miles and tempers already will be high. Most NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers send their paybacks and messages at Martinsville annually...

Are bygones really bygones?

  As far as the blocking issue at Fontana is concerned, both Tony Stewart and Joey Logano indicated Friday that the incident is in the rear-view mirror. Though Stewart says his stance on blocking hasn't changed, he deflected a question about his promise to teach Logano a lesson. "That's two weeks ago," Stewart said. "I'm on Martinsville this weekend. We...

This Week in NASCAR

If you haven't been under a pile of snow for the last two weeks, you have heard endless media coverage regarding Denny Hamlin's injury, Joey Logano's lack of remorse, feuds, rivalries and crashes.  But what about the racing? C'mon folks, we are at Martinsville!  This is the epitome of short tracks, and no doubt there will be more rivalries, more feuds and...

Substitute driver Brian Vickers can empathize with Denny Hamlin

In picking Brian Vickers to substitute for Denny Hamlin, Joe Gibbs Racing got a driver who can empathize with what Hamlin is feeling while he waits to return to his car. Vickers will start a stint of indeterminate length in the No. 11 Toyota next weekend at Texas Motor Speedway, as Hamlin continues to recover from a compression fracture of the first lumbar vertebra suffered during...

NASCAR at Martinsville

To listen to the experts, we might as well not even run this race, Jimmie Johnson is so favorited.  However, this fan wants to see the race.   I want to see if the drivers will police Joey Logano themselves, as has been suggested. I want to see if a different Hendrick Motorsport driver can get the checkers first. I want to see if Mark Martin can get the car up to the front...

Johnson posts record speed in winning Martinsville Coors Light Pole

  So what else is new? Jimmie Johnson, who won last fall's race at Martinsville Speedway from the top starting spot, continued his mastery of the paper-clip-shaped track during Friday afternoon's time trials. In the first competitive appearance of NASCAR's Gen-6 race car at Martinsville, Johnson blistered the vaunted short track in 19.244 seconds (98.400 mph) in winning...

NASCAR: Perfect storm for Sprint Cup as series gets back to action at Martinsville

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series gets back to action at the .526-mile paperclip of Martinsville Speedway this weekend. The series had the week off last week in observance of Easter weekend and enters the race this weekend with a ton of momentum. Fan favorite Dale Earnhardt Jr. is leading the points and despite his zero victories so far in 2013 he’s been a threat for the win in all...
