Joey Logano did not hold back when he was asked if he had purposely cost #9 Chase Elliott the win in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Chase Elliott accidentally wrecked Logano in the closing laps at Bristol a few weeks ago, an incident that sparked a bit of a rivalry after Logano said he had to force an apology.
Added Hamlin regarding Logano’s apparent hold-up of Elliott at Homestead: “I don’t know. Maybe, maybe not. It’s all speculative. You kind of have to ask Joey.”
Hers is Logano response:
“Yeah, of course,” Logano told Sporting News frankly when asked Tuesday whether he changed the way he was driving once Elliott appeared in his mirror. “You race people the way they race you. You can’t do things without repercussions of some sort. You cost me a win, I cost you a win. Those types of things go like that.

“I would assume that everyone kind of understands how that stuff works. And you kind of move on from there.”
Move on. So does this mean the end to the Logano and Elliott rivalry?
“We’ll see,” Logano said.
