PLAYERS: Joey Logano
It seems crazy but Tony Stewart and Joey Logano both agree on something. That is both drivers are moving forward from their Fontana clash and putting it behind them. “I’ve got three race cars and we are in Martinsville, Virginia this week.  I’ve got a lot of stuff to do other than worry about something that happened two weeks ago.  I can’t change it.  I can’t do anything about what happened two weeks ago.  All I can do is worry about our Rush Truck Centers Chevrolet, our GoDaddy Chevrolet and our Quicken Loans Chevrolet.  That is the three things that I can control right now.  That is what I have to focus on.  I can’t waste time worrying about what happened two weeks ago.  I gave everybody more than ample time to ask me all the questions they wanted two weeks ago about what happened two weeks ago.  It’s time to move on from here,” Stewart told reporters Friday from the Martinsville Speedway. “I feel like with Tony and I, I think it’s pretty much over.  We have not talked to each

Stewart, Logano say they have moved on from fracas

Tony Stewart and Joey Logano say their dustup is over. They just haven't said it to each other. The drivers tangled two weeks ago at the end of the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at California, where Stewart thought Logano had blocked him in the closing laps. Stewart parked his car near Logano's and approached him. There was some shoving, but crew members broke it up quickly. Stewart...

Will payback come at Martinsville?

In recent weeks there have been several incidents that have created drama and controversy in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series. Unfortunately for Joey Logano, he has been at the center of them. It started at Bristol Motor Speedway when Logano, while running strong in second place, was hit from the rear by Denny Hamlin. The bump resulted in Logano spinning out and making contact with the...

Are bygones really bygones?

  As far as the blocking issue at Fontana is concerned, both Tony Stewart and Joey Logano indicated Friday that the incident is in the rear-view mirror. Though Stewart says his stance on blocking hasn't changed, he deflected a question about his promise to teach Logano a lesson. "That's two weeks ago," Stewart said. "I'm on Martinsville this weekend. We...

NASCAR: Martinsville not a good spot for Tony Stewart to send payback to Logano

The logical place for Tony Stewart to get payback and send a message to Joey Logano that he’s not going to stand behind what he did to him last race at Fontana would be this weekend’s race at Martinsville Speedway. The track is short at just .526-miles and tempers already will be high. Most NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers send their paybacks and messages at Martinsville annually...

You can block, but expect consequences

  Denny Hamlin's wreck, the result of hard racing from Joey Logano as both drivers battled for the win at Fontana, wasn't the only nastiness that occurred at the two-mile track. On the final restart, Logano blocked Tony Stewart and broke his momentum, costing Stewart a chance to win the race. After the race, an angry Stewart confronted Logano on pit road, as crew members...

Ford Racing Qualifying Report – Sprint Cup Series

JOEY LOGANO – No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Ford Fusion ON HIS RUN: “Todd Gordon and all the guys did a good job on this Shell/Pennzoil Ford getting it better for me than what we had in practice. In practice there were some things that I could have done better, but we just worked as a team and made it a little better. I’m pretty sure it’s not gonna hold up, but it’s gonna be better...

Crash course in racetrack etiquette

It's been 37 years since Elton John first sang "Sorry seems to be the hardest word." It might take the same amount of time before Denny Hamlin hears an apology from Joey Logano. "I thought it was just hard racing, to be honest with you," Logano said of the closing laps with Hamlin at Auto Club Speedway two weeks ago. "I felt like I just got in too hard...

Payback is always coming in NASCAR

Denny Hamlin believes that justice will be served. While NASCAR deduced that the March 24 incident between Hamlin and Joey Logano in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Auto Club Speedway was just a racing deal, Hamlin still believes that the accident -- which left him sidelined for at least the next four races -- was indeed intentional. However, Hamlin did not take issue with NASCAR...

This Week in NASCAR

If you haven't been under a pile of snow for the last two weeks, you have heard endless media coverage regarding Denny Hamlin's injury, Joey Logano's lack of remorse, feuds, rivalries and crashes.  But what about the racing? C'mon folks, we are at Martinsville!  This is the epitome of short tracks, and no doubt there will be more rivalries, more feuds and...

What Happened to All the NASCAR Rivalries?

Joey Logano. Tony Stewart. Denny Hamlin. Clint Bowyer. Jeff Gordon. The list of NASCAR drivers ticked off, for one reason or another, entering...

NASCAR at Martinsville

To listen to the experts, we might as well not even run this race, Jimmie Johnson is so favorited.  However, this fan wants to see the race.   I want to see if the drivers will police Joey Logano themselves, as has been suggested. I want to see if a different Hendrick Motorsport driver can get the checkers first. I want to see if Mark Martin can get the car up to the front...

Jeff Gordon hasn't forgotten three-wide debacle at Martinsville

  With all the talk about controversy between Joey Logano and Tony Stewart — not to mention between Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin — the incident that lit the fuse between Clint Bowyer and Jeff Gordon has been shoved into the background. Bowyer's ill-fated three-wide move last spring at Martinsville Speedway, which wrecked Bowyer, Gordon and Jimmie Johnson, was the catalyst...

Johnson posts record speed in winning Martinsville Coors Light Pole

  So what else is new? Jimmie Johnson, who won last fall's race at Martinsville Speedway from the top starting spot, continued his mastery of the paper-clip-shaped track during Friday afternoon's time trials. In the first competitive appearance of NASCAR's Gen-6 race car at Martinsville, Johnson blistered the vaunted short track in 19.244 seconds (98.400 mph) in winning...

NASCAR: Perfect storm for Sprint Cup as series gets back to action at Martinsville

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series gets back to action at the .526-mile paperclip of Martinsville Speedway this weekend. The series had the week off last week in observance of Easter weekend and enters the race this weekend with a ton of momentum.
