TONY STEWART, NO. 14 RUSH TRUCK CENTERS/MOBIL 1 CHEVROLET – FINISHED 22nd WHAT DID YOU TAKE ISSUE WITH AT THE END OF THE RACE? “Well, Joey (Logano) spun the tires on the restart. Everybody had trouble with that so, but it’s not my fault that he spun the tires. For a guy that has been complaining about how everybody else is driving here and then (for) him to do that it’s a double standard. He makes the choice. He makes the decision to run us down there and when you run a driver down there then you take responsibility for what happens after that. He is a tough guy on pit road as soon as one of his crew guys gets in the middle of it. Until then he’s a scared little kid. Then he wants to sit there and throw a water bottle at me. He is going to learn a lesson. He can run his mouth on Twitter and stuff all he wants tonight. I’ve got plenty of people that are going to watch for that. It’s time he learns a lesson. He’s run his mouth long enough. He has sat there and done this double standard and he’s nothing but a little rich kid that has never had to work in his life. He’s going to learn with us working guys that had to work our way up how it works.”
BEFORE THAT, YOU CAME STORMING UP THROUGH THE FIELD. TELL US ABOUT THAT
“We came in that one stop and got two tires that got us an awesome restart on the outside that got us to third. I was proud of the restart and really proud of the team. They did an awesome job and had awesome pit stops and made great changes all day. I don’t know what happened at the end. I think we had a tire going down. If not, we had something else that actually happened. But it started right before the caution and was really bad afterwards. It’s still no excuse for Joey to do what he did. I’m just tired of watching these kids whine and then they sit there and act tough when their crew guys get in the middle of it. If NASCAR wants us to let the guys have at it, it shouldn’t be any different than hockey. Let the guys have at it and then when one guy goes to the ground, then it’s over.
INAUDIBLE QUESTION REGARDING JOEY LOGANO AND BLOCKING
“He still takes the responsibility on himself. He has that right. He has the choice to do that. He’s in control of his car. But if he ever turns down across in front of me again, I don’t care what lap it is, he won’t make it through the other end of it. If I didn’t hit the chip, he wouldn’t have made it through Turn 1 to begin with. I’m tired of these guys doing that stuff; especially out of a kid that’s been griping about everybody else, and then he does that the next week. I mean he’s sent Denny (Hamlin) to the hospital and screwed our day up. He’s talked the talk, but he hasn’t walked the walk yet. He’s always got his crew guys walking the walk for him.”
HE SAYS HE WANTS TO CALL YOU THIS WEEK. WILL YOU ACCEPT HIS CALL?
“Hell no. If he wants to talk about it, we’ll talk about it. After he threw the water bottle at me like a little girl, we’ll go at it now.”

Joey Logano threw a block on Tony Stewart during NASCAR's Auto Club 400 on Sunday and Stewart responded by throwing punches on Logano.
Can't we all just get along?
Denny Hamlin once called Joey Logano his teammate. After last Sunday's run-in at Bristol Motor Speedway between the two drivers, Hamlin dismissed Logano's indignation later that night on Twitter with a simple, "hush, little child."
However, Hamlin's tune softened slightly on Friday.

Tony Stewart wasn’t very fond of Joey Logano blocking him during restart of the Spring Cup Auto Club 400 that he actually sought him out after the race and dropped the gloves so to speak. Stewart was still hot during the post race interview saying he was going to “bust (Logano’s) ass”. Now it’s no [...]
Anybody remember this?
It was 2008 and Joey Logano, who wasn’t ready for a full-time Sprint Cup schedule, was being promoted by Home Depot for his 2009 full-time Sprint Cup schedule with Joe Gibbs Racing because Tony Stewart was leaving for life as a driver/owner.
I now feel comfortable saying Logano wasn’t ready because the young man labeled “sliced bread” failed to make...

After trading barbs on Twitter a week ago, Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano actually traded paint on Sunday, throwing away their chances to win the Auto Club 400 by banging each other into oblivion on the final lap at Auto Club Speedway.

After last week’s melt down it figured that drivers Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin would race each other for the win at Auto Club Speedway.

''Listen, Joey is a great driver and...

What an incredible turn of events that unfolded in the closing laps at Auto Club Speedway — a track not normally known for exciting races, or finishes. That all changed after the 2013 Auto Club 400, as the fans will be talking about this race for a long time to come.
The latest chapter...
Did Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race remind you of something? Something that happened 34 years ago perhaps?
Two cars battling each other down the backstretch, racing side by side, banging doors over and over again and ultimately wrecking each other in Turn 3.
A third-place car flying past the wreck to steal the victory… A fight after the race…
That's what happened...
Trying to put the fine and issues with Joey Logano behind him, Denny Hamlin would win the pole for the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway.
