J.D. Gibbs also doesn't believe Logano knew Hamlin was injured -- as Logano has confirmed -- when he said his former JGR teammate got what he deserved in the wreck.
Hamlin crashed into a concrete retaining wall and suffered a compression fracture in his lower back that is expected to sideline him for at least the next five races, beginning with the April 7 event at Martinsville.
Since then, speculation on what happened between the two drivers who feuded a week earlier at Bristol has escalated.
At Bristol, Hamlin wrecked Logano while Logano was racing Jeff Gordon for the lead late at Bristol, leading to a shoving match on pit road between the team crews and a war of words on Twitter between the drivers.
Afterward, Hamlin said Logano told him he was coming for him.
"I think [Logano] was definitely racing for the win,'' Gibbs said during a Thursday conference call. "He was going for it. He's had some fast cars both those last couple of races. I don't know how much the week before played into it. ... My guess, whoever it was [next to him], he was going to try to win that thing.''(ESPN)
