dbp:quote
  • “Matt Kenseth, who felt he was wronged by Joey Logano at Kansas Speedway two weeks ago, paid off what he had promised earlier in the weekend when he purposely crashed into the Team Penske driver. It was a pretty blatant retaliation that Kenseth tried to cover up by saying a tire went down to cause his contact with Logano. Not surprisingly many believe what Kenseth did was perfectly acceptable while others saw it as crossing the line…and then some. The time has come for NASCAR to step in and stop the madness. All Sunday’s incident did was take the focus away from what was a pretty interesting race and its championship implications and reinforce the “wrecking is racing” stereotype the sport does not deserve.”
  • “I got wrecked,” Logano said. “I don’t know. What am I supposed to say about it? His race was over and he tried so hard to catch us the first time and he took out half the field, and he was successful the second time so I give that to him. It’s kind of a coward move. Actually, a really coward move for a race car driver to do that, essentially someone as mature and an experienced race car driver that knows what this is all about. I think what happened at Kansas is a completely different deal. We were racing for the win and he blocks you a few times and then we raced hard and he blocked me the last time and we spun out. That’s what happened there. Here it was just a complete coward move, especially for a championship racecar driver and race team. Just a complete coward. I don’t have anything else to say. It’s a chicken-you-know-what move to completely take out the leader when your race is over. We’ll move on.”
  • “The reality is that in Kansas, what I said on this show was that late in a race we expect drivers to take chances to win races, they’ve got the skill to do it. We expect them to race hard. Blocking is part of this game, as Matt was doing, and contact will happen in NASCAR from time to time. That’s really all that was, but the unfortunate thing for Matt is that he had a lot of on the line that day and it’s understandable the disappointment he had. Late in that race, a faster car is behind you and you’re blocking, there’s some contact and you get the short end of it and you go around. That was an entirely different situation than Martinsville. What we’re not going to do is to take the style of NASCAR and parlay that into something where one driver or another believes the way to pay back somebody for something that happened is to take matters into their own hands. Obviously, we won’t be accepting that. The most important thing is the way to pay drivers back is to race them hard. When someone races you hard, you race them hard. If they’re going to give you no inches late in the race, then that’s how you’re going to race them. That’s NASCAR. What happened on Sunday, that’s not quite the way we would have liked to have seen that turn out.”
