Denny Hamlin to miss Sunday's race at Fontana
It's become an unwelcome yearly visit to a California hospital.
Less than 30 minutes before the start of Sunday Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., Sprint Cup Series driver Denny Hamlin was being transported to a local hospital for vision problems related to a sinus infection.
Hamlin will miss Sunday's race. Sam Hornish Jr., who runs a partial Nationwide Series schedule for Joe Gibbs Racing, will drive Hamlin's No. 11 Toyota in Sunday's race.
One year ago, Hamlin was transported to a local hospital following the race after suffering a serious back injury in a last-lap wreck with Joey Logano.
