Report: Driver twitter battle follows Daytona 500

The SportsXchange

NASCAR drivers have a habit of making their frustrations public after a race, and the aftermath of Sunday's Daytona 500 was no different, as Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano traded tweets, according to a report by USA Today.

It started with Hamlin's tweet to Brad Keselowski, who finished fourth:

"@keselowski sorry I couldn't get close to you cuz your genius teammate was too busy messing up the inside line 1 move at a time"

That genius teammate is Logano, who drove for Joe Gibbs Racing with Hamlin from 2008 to 2012 before joining Penske Racing this year.

Hamlin, who finished 14th, did not appreciate that Logano impeded his moves by not sticking to the inside line.

Clint Bowyer retweeted Hamlin and supported Hamlin's contention by adding "2nd that" to the tweet.

Logano, who finished 19th, responded by tweeting:

"@dennyhamlin I Remember when you were MY genius teammate. #LoveYouMeanIt"

Hamlin responded to the response by tweeting:

"@joeylogano inside line was doomed every 3 wide move that was made. Nobody who went 3 middle went anywhere"
