Commenting on the rift between Kevin Harvick and Chase Elliott, Joey Logano said that he didn’t want to take any sides but would not have liked to be in any of the two drivers position either.
Logano has had ontrack clash with both the drivers in the past; with Harvick in 2010 at Pocono Raceway and with Elliott last year at Bristol Motor Speedway. While Logano could be the person to shed more light on what goes on during such situation, but he intends to keep it neutral in this latest conflict bewteen Cup drivers.
“As far as the whole Chase and Harvick thing, I am not a horse in this race,” Logano said in a Wednesday media availability.
“So I can be out of that one. I can see both sides of the story, though. If there’s one thing I think we all can probably agree on watching it back is that I’d be mad on either side of it.”
“I’d be nervous. I’d be maybe a little nervous about the situation, you know, depending on who goes on to the next round or not,” Logano said. “It could really affect how things go.”
“I feel like I’ve learned a lot of lessons in this sport. Some have cost me a lot. That might be one that really cost me a lot. So, you know, they get smarter every year, but you know I think we all handle things differently after going through things in the past.”
Harvick compared Elliott to a nine-year-old ahead of the playoffs race at Las Vegas. Logano believes that such mind games are played out every day.
“I was surprised, I’ll tell you that much, I was surprised hearing the comments. I thought they were humorous, though — pretty entertaining for us.”
“Games are played every day, I believe so.”
Logano is currently seventh in the standings, just two points above the cutline.
