CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Denny Hamlin was clearly frustrated a week ago at Michigan, when some jockeying for position led to a confrontation with Dale Earnhardt Jr. after the race.

His Toyota engine is at the root of Hamlin’s displeasure and the manufacturer doesn’t disagree. Hamlin said after Sunday’s race that he’s doing everything he can to keep up with the Hendrick Motorsports engines.

“We need to be better,” said David Wilson, president of Toyota Racing Development. “The folks over at the Hendrick shop have done a great job this year and they’ve got an edge, not just on us but the others as well.”

CINCINNATI — The Bengals and Vontaze Burfict agreed to a 3-year contract extension that will pay the Pro Bowl linebacker a maximum of $20.05 million through 2017, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press.

Burfict is making $570,000 in the final year of his original deal with Cincinnati, which took a minimal risk when it signed him as an undrafted free agent from Arizona State in 2012.

Under his extension, he’ll make $10 million through next summer, said the person speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been announced by the team or signed by the linebacker.
