Joey Logano might just be the most hated man in NASCAR Cup Series playoffs right now.
After frustrating defending champion Kyle Busch last weekend, Logano got under the skin of No.9 Chase Elliott on Sunday afternoon at Las Vegas Motor Speedway during the South Point 400. His block of Elliott on a restart set off the annoyance of the Hendrick Motorsports driver.
“Make sure the nose (of my car) is OK from that dips— up there,” Elliott told his team via radio.
“He needs to get sent sooner or later,” Elliott’s team responded.

Joey Logano has never been a favorite driver — considering his back-and-forth with No. 19 Martin Truex Jr. a few years ago — but this is a particularly antagonistic stretch for him.
