Denny Hamlin update

Post by DavidM » Mon Mar 25, 2013 4:04 pm

Monday March 25, 2013

Undated-- Denny Hamlin suffered a compression fracture in his lower back during Sunday's last-lap crash at Fontana, Calif.

Joe Gibbs Racing disclosed the injury Monday and said Hamlin was expected to be released soon from a Southern California hospital to return home. He has what is called an L1 compression fracture; essentially, the first vertebra in the lumbar section of his spine collapsed.

There was no immediate word on how long his recovery would take.

Hamlin was hurt during a crash with Joey Logano at the end of Sunday's race. He complained of lower back pain afterward.

Hope he can make it back quickly. Just don't rush to fast and make it worse.

Just think if he would not have tried to wreck Joey then he would not have spun and hit the wall, which in turn means he would not be hurt and able to race in 2 weeks.

I heard MWR said "NO" to Martin driving so they are going to pull Vickers up...

Course that's just what I "heard", I can't find it in writing anywhere, lol...

UPDATE 6: Rumors of Mark Martin's substitute role have been greatly exaggerated. It will now last only one race, after a series of conflicting announcements. Joe Gibbs Racing originally reported on Thursday that Martin would be competing for Denny Hamlin while Hamlin recuperates from a lower-back compression fracture, suffered during a last-lap crash at Auto Club Speedway on Sunday. The sub-headline that read, "Veteran NASCAR Driver Mark Martin to Drive No. 11 FedEx Toyota Until Hamlin Returns" indicated that the affable 54-year-old veteran would sub throughout Hamlin's recovery. But apparently the deal was not cleared by Aaron's, which is sponsoring Martin in the #55 this season and has enjoyed a relationship with Michael Waltrip since 2000.(Fox Sports)(3-30-2013)
