NASCAR Rivals Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin Clash Again at Ally 400 in Nashville

NASCAR drivers Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin were involved in a heated incident during the Cup Series Ally 400 in Nashville on Sunday. The clash occurred after a restart on Lap 123, where Hamlin was forced into a corner by Kyle Larson and made contact with the rear of Logano’s car. Logano expressed his frustration over the team radio and gestured towards Hamlin with a middle finger.

Logano, who started the restart in fourth position, dropped to 15th after the contact with Hamlin. Three laps later, a caution stoppage occurred. On the subsequent restart, Logano and Hamlin made contact again, with Logano seemingly unaware of Larson’s role in the initial incident. Logano’s team explained that Larson had caused a chain reaction, but Logano believed Hamlin could have avoided the contact by lifting.

The rivalry between Logano and Hamlin dates back over a decade. Hamlin, who has driven for Joe Gibbs Racing throughout his career, overlapped with Logano at the team from 2008 to 2012. The first public conflict between the two occurred a year after Logano’s departure from Joe Gibbs Racing when Hamlin criticized Logano’s racing style on Twitter.

Tensions escalated in subsequent years, with altercations in the 2019 NASCAR Playoffs at Dover International Speedway and Martinsville. The conflict remained dormant until Hamlin voiced his displeasure with Logano’s approach at Martinsville in 2023.
