DOVER, Del. (AP) - Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick tangled on the track, then got into a heated exchange in the garage during the first practice Saturday at Dover International Speedway.
Hamlin and Harvick made contact during the opening laps of practice, with Harvick bumping Hamlin's No. 11 Toyota and damaging its right rear. Once the drivers returned to the garage, they got into each other's faces before they were separated. Tempers flared again and they quickly went back to yelling at each other before they were broken up for good.
Harvick and Hamlin are 1-2 in the points standings. Their stalls and haulers are next to each other in the garage.
Both drivers declined to comment.
