Chase Elliott’s Crew Chief Alan Gustafson was mad at Joey Logano at Martinsville and called him a “f***ing hack” on the team radio.
Logano was aggressive in his race and it could have costed Elliott dearly as he was chasing a place in the Championship 4. As for Logano, he had already qualified for the final race of the 2020 season due to his win at Kansas Speedway.
Speaking over the radio, Gustafson said:
“We’re going to wreck him here”.

The No. 9 crew chief later elaborated on the incident.
“I think it’s self-policing in my opinion. There’s a couple of guys who consistently do it, at least to us. You just get tired of getting raced that way. I was pretty upset about it, if that ultimately was a tire rub, it would have cut our tire and it was gonna get ugly.”
The two drivers are set to lock horns for one last time as both of them chase the 2020 title at Phoenix.
