HUMBLE, Texas (AP) — Roger Penske said that Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin have exchanged text messages since their final-lap crash at Fontana last weekend that left Hamlin hospitalized with a fractured vertebra.
Penske said he’s also sent text messages to Hamlin, who is expected to miss at least six weeks. Penske and Logano, one of his drivers, were playing in the pro-am leading up to the PGA Tour’s Houston Open. Logano twice turned down interview requests.
Hamlin acknowledged he exchanged text messages with Logano.
“It didn’t go well,” Hamlin told The Associated Press. “The conversation was both short and unproductive.”
