10:19 AM ET 09.26 | Kevin Harvick showed he had his teammate's back by damaging Denny Hamlin's rear. After Hamlin bumped Harvick on the track, the top two points leaders were involved in a heated and profane exchange in the garage, sparking some life into the first practice Saturday at Dover International Speedway. The dustup came a day after Hamlin blasted Clint Bowyer, saying Harvick's RCR teammate was making excuses for why his winning car at New Hampshire failed a follow-up inspection. Harvick appeared to stick up for Bowyer not with words, but with force.

" Happy " isn't too happy.

According to an article in today's paper, the argument was more from the practice crash rather than the comments made by Hamlin regarding Bowyer. It also reported that Hamlin had more damage than Harvick.

Boo Whoo for Denny...he's a little loud mouth punk.

Same idea. On the other hand it was fun watching Danica driving backwards the whole time. She needs to stick to Indy

Funny how the fans want more personality and emotion from the drivers and when they get it, they immediately start calling the drivers all sorts of names.

It should be interesting today if these two are running next to each other. Hopefully, they don't do anything stupid. You know J.J. is just licking his chops waiting for Hamlin & Harvick to hand him a gift.

Having to sit on the NYC yellow pages so she can see over the dashboard appears to be screwing up her hand/foot/eye coordination. I got something she can sit on instead.

I don't like Harvick or Hamlin so the more they scream at each other the more I enjoy it. I'd like to see a few fists thrown, too. That's Entertainment.

I felt sorry for her actually, watching the in-car camera, seeing her bounce around, and yeah, seeing her bounce around...

Totally agree with you on that one. Everybody talks about JJ and and Gordon being cookie cutter and without any personality. Then they bash the Bush brothers, Denny and Harvick when they display personality. And everyone likes the let em race policy until their driver gets spun by an bump late in the race. The worst part is, I've caught myself doing the same thing.

Denny is leading in points, Kyle is in 3rd minus 45 points and Joey had a solid third today. Not a bad day for Gibbs.

September 26, 2010  11:27 PM ET

Half way through the race I thought Jooonya hadn't made the field. The announcers never mentioned him, it looks like they have given up on touting the prodigy.

I took an interest in Jooonya when all the followers were all over this place two years ago, they have mostly drifted away but I keep thinking of what could have been if he was a truly talented driover.
I was thinking that if Harvick and Denny kept the fued going, it would be a shootout for the Championship with J.J. and Kyle.
Great day for the Gibbs Gang.

he has the talent and you know it.. does he really want it? thats the real question..

i think the RCR/hamlin fued is far from over.. it should keep the chase interesting..

Lets see how much longer Hamlin keeps the lead. He's is going out of his way to cause himself more problems than he can handle. He should just shut up and and drive. Instead, he's gonna have to watch his mirror for the rest of The Chase to see where the 29 or 33 car are and be careful not to get put into the wall "accidentally." Some drivers ought to stick with things they can win at. Hamlim may have just opened the door for Johnson to win another championship. That would be be absolutely sickening and BAD for the sport! I believe it safe to say most folks have had enough of the Chad and Jimmie show.

LONDON ??? A wealthy British businessman who owns the company that makes the two-wheeled Segway has been found dead in a river in northern England after apparently falling off a cliff on one of the vehicles, police said Monday.
Not a very good endorsement of the safety of the Segway, all the mall Cops should be careful around the escalators and stairs.

Leave it up to the Brits to go fishing with a Segway ...

That story is Headlining the local newsrag since the Segway was invented and manufactured here in NH. It is bizarre to say the least. I wonder if Dean Kamen will make an effort to buy it back now that tragedy has fallen (can't help it) upon this man?
