11:14 AM ET 03.23 | Denny Hamlin apologized Friday for making two mistakes involving former Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Joey Logano last weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway. The first mistake was bumping Logano too hard on Lap 349 in retaliation for the way the Penske Racing driver raced him earlier. The bump sent Logano into a spin when he was battling Jeff Gordon for the lead and ruined any chance he had of contending for the victory. The second was for attacking Logano personally after a postrace shoving match between the crews that began when Logano approached Hamlin at his car. "He said he was coming for me," Hamlin said after the incident. "I usually don't see him, so it's not a factor." On the first mistake, Hamlin said he was trying to send Logano a message with a tap after Logano pinched down on him too hard earlier. "I felt bad, and really if you could watch my in-car camera, you could see how frustrated I was to see he had damage to his car," Hamlin said before the first practice at Auto Club Speedway. "I banged the steering wheel because I was, 'Man, I didn't mean to do that.'"

Why did Denny apologize for??.. he 'barely' tapped Logano at Bristol.. and Logano is still trying to prove he has a pair.. which will take more than trying to pick a fight with someone he knows will kick the crap out of him

Agree....plus what is the point of apologizing if your related comments are all untrue......."feeling
bad"......LIE......."banged the steering wheel"......probably true, but said different words, like YES, YES, YES, I Rock, God, I'm good, Who's the Man now.........

Denny, no matter how you slant it, you are a doooshinator........you're ugly, inside and out.

I don't think Joey got the message.

This will only get worse after yesterday.

"Smoke" is bringing a message to Joey!!
