TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) -- NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin has been
released from a hospital a day after a hard crash at Talladega
Superspeedway. Hamlin was kept overnight for observation after his car slammed into a retaining wall. He was alert and awake when he was transported to the UAB Medical Center yesterday, but was
complaining of a headache and possibly had a concussion. He was
also favoring his right foot after a slow exit from his crumpled
car.

Hamlin is one of 12 drivers racing for the Sprint Cup title. He
was leading midway through the race when his right front tire
failed and his Toyota shot into the outside wall. He said nothing
over his in-car radio after the hit and took several moments to get
out of the car. Hamlin finished 39th in the race and fell to 12th in the Chase
standings.
