Logano, Stewart fight after race
If rubbin’ is racin’, then Joey Logano has been getting a little too touchy-feely the past two races.
One week after trading paint with Denny Hamlin at Bristol, Logano was at it again Sunday. The two rivals were involved in a last-lap wreck as they were jostling for the win at the Auto Club 400 in Fontana, paving the way Kyle Busch to take home the victory. Check out the fireworks.
Moments later, Tony Stewart stuck his nose into the fracas, igniting a brouhaha on pit road that included Logano throwing a haymaker.
Stewart had some choice words for the young driver.
But Logano, who placed third, had to tell his side of the story.
Hamlin, who finished 25th, was airlifted to a hospital, but reports are he's being held for observation. Hamlin's owner, Joe Gibbs, said that the driver will remain in the hospital overnight for observation after complaining about back pain.
Hamlin's girlfriend also provided an update.

Fellow driver Kasey Kahne, who finished ninth Sunday, has definitely picked sides in this developing feud.
Just listened to an awesome interview by Tony Stewart. I think he said it all!— Kasey Kahne (@kaseykahne) March 24, 2013
With all the back and forth going on, it's easy to lose track of the winner. Here's Kyle Busch's take on what went down.
