Joey Logano: No worries about retaliation from Danica Patrick
Joey Logano said he’s made peace with Danica Patrick and isn’t worried she’ll intentionally wreck him to ruin his championship chances.
Logano spun Patrick during the Oct. 11 race at Charlotte and she was given permission over her team radio to retaliate. She later remarked that wrecking Logano would have no effect on his title chances because he’d already earned a spot in the third round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
Logano said Tuesday he took responsibility for the accident in a conversation with Patrick.
”I think we came to a good conclusion of what happened — that’s in the past, that’s in the mirror, and we’ll move forward,” he said.
Logano, winner of one race in each of the first two rounds of the Chase, said the Charlotte accident was his fault.
”It was a racing deal,” he said during an appearance at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
”It was one of those points that we were both being very aggressive. She was going to, obviously, try to take the spot and come down across me, and I probably should have gave at that point and I didn’t. I told her, really in all honesty, I probably should have backed out in that situation.”
RYAN NEWMAN HAPPY TO AVOID PENALTY
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Ryan Newman admitted to being worried about a possible penalty when his car was ruled too low in the rear on both sides in post-race inspection following Sunday’s GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway.
"I was worried because you never know what could happen," Newman said during the Eliminator Round Media Day at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. "I was happy with the fact that NASCAR took the time to take the car back to the Tech Center, do everything and analyze everything."
On Tuesday, NASCAR ruled that Newman had cleared post-race inspection after deeming that race damage caused the No. 31 car to be too low in the rear.
