When we last saw NASCAR in action, at Fontana, there was a last-lap crash among the leaders, a post-race brawl between Joey Logano and Tony Stewart, and an ambulance was taking away an injured Denny Hamlin. Now, after a week off for Easter, the Sprint Cup Series heads to the cramped, half-mile Martinsville (Va.) Speedway for its next race Sunday. And all eyes will be on Logano and Stewart to see if their feud surfaces again. "You have to know what's going on and watch out for the dramas," driver Ryan Newman told reporters Tuesday.

J.D. Gibbs, president of Denny Hamlin's NASCAR team Joe Gibbs Racing, said Thursday he did not think Hamlin's crash with Joey Logano that left Hamlin with a back injury was a form of payback by Logano because the drivers have been feuding. "My personal take is that I think Joey was just really trying to make a point, he was pushing it" as the two raced side by side for the win on the last lap of Sunday's race at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Gibbs told reporters on a conference call.

Signaling that its "boys, have at it" policy remains in effect, NASCAR on Tuesday declined to penalize any of its drivers after the wild finish Sunday at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. The climax to the Auto Club 400 featured the feuding drivers Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin colliding and crashing on the last lap as they battled for the win, which went to Kyle Busch. There also was a post-race shoving match between Logano and three-time Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart, who was furious about an earlier blocking move by Logano.

NASCAR's Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano have exchanged text messages in the aftermath of their crash last weekend that sidelined Hamlin with an injured back, Logano's team owner Roger Penske said Wednesday. Penske said he's also sent text messages to Hamlin, a driver for Joe Gibbs Racing who's expected to miss about six weeks after suffering the injury Sunday at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. "I've texted back and forth with him and said that we're thinking about him," Penske told Associated Press in Humble, Texas, where Penske and Logano were playing in the pro-am leading up to the PGA Tour's Houston Open.

NASCAR on Tuesday said it would not penalize Joey Logano, Tony Stewart or any other driver following the wild finish to the race at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. Logano and Denny Hamlin, who already were feuding, collided on the last lap of Sunday's Auto Club 400 as they raced for the win. Both cars spun and Hamlin slammed into an inside retaining wall, with Hamlin suffering a lower-back injury that could sideline the Joe Gibbs Racing driver. Soon afterward, Stewart -- angry at how Logano blocked him on the race's final restart -- got into a shoving match on pit road and they had to be separated by their crews.

After tweeting, "I just want to go home," earlier in the day, NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin finally got his wish Monday evening when he was released from the Loma Linda University Medical Center more than 24 hours after wrecking into the wall on the final lap of the Auto Club 400 in Fontana. Still, life probably won't be returning to normal any time soon for Hamlin, who suffered a compression fracture in his lower back during the crash that followed his collision with rival driver Joey Logano.

Denny Hamlin started the Auto Club 400 in the pole position. He ended up in the hospital. In between there was a lot of good racing in Fontana on Sunday that culminated in Hamlin getting tangled with rival Joey Logano on the final lap and landing front-first against a wall. Kyle Busch wound up winning the race, with Logano hanging on for third place and Hamlin claiming 22nd. Hamlin was able to exit the car on his own but then slumped to the ground beside it. He was eventually airlifted to the hospital.
