Deviled Hamlin

By Wyatt Earp | July 24, 2006

Fed Ex: When you absolutely, positively have to get into Victory Lane.

The yellow stripe on Denny Hamlin’s rear bumper means that he is a rookie, but anyone who saw yesterday’s Pennsylvania 500 wouldn’t believe it. Hamlin’s #11 Fed Ex car led 141 of 200 laps enroute to his second win and a season sweep at the Pocono Raceway.

Of course, yesterday’s event was not without its drama: and most of it involved jackass extraordinaire Tony Stewart. According to the replays, the bump was seemingly unintentional, but in Stewart’s everyone’s-out-to-get-me world, Bowyer hit him on purpose. Being a class guy, Stewart then turned into the #07, spinning him and Carl Edwards – and basically eliminated the two from the championship race. Nice.

“If it weren’t for the respect of the sport and the people watching and his team, he’d be out there bleeding right now,” fumed Edwards, who was also penalized one lap for his retaliatory spin of Stewart.

Thankfully, NASCAR penalized Stewart one lap for rough driving, but, typically, Stewart thought everyone else was to blame. After the race he blasted Bowyer, Edwards, and the rookie drivers that “drive too aggressively too soon in the race.” Mister Pot, meet Mister Kettle. As if that weren’t galling enough, he then stated that the late Dale Earnhardt would have set these drivers straight.

Tony, Tony, Tony. Dale Earnhardt hated your guts. He even said as much when Stewart was a wiseass punk rookie on the circuit. Don’t take his name in vain to make your point, you jackass!

    Hey! I actually watched that race. Odd considering I’m not a NASCAR fan, but it makes for good ambient noise while blogging. I saw the a$$holish driving too. One of the reasons I don’t like NASCAR is because most of the interviews I see with the drivers make me think they are all pricks.

    Fm – They are becoming more and more common, unfortunately. Stewart and Kevin Harvick are far and away the most heinous offenders. Heh, heh, “heinous.”

    Earnhart would have busted him up side the head! What a Putz!

    This world is seriously lacking humility. Oh wait….Floyd Landis is an example of humility. Sorry…had a cynical moment.

    At least Senior chose his moments and picked his battles. Steward should just drive a bulldowzer (sp).

    Ssssteve – Agreed. He never liked the guy . . . and for good reason.

    RT – Don’t forget Hamlin. You had to take his pulse in Victory Lane to see if he was alive. He kept saying, “I didn’t do anything. I won because MY TEAM gave me a great car.”
