CHARLOTTE, N.C.—On Oct. 11 at Charlotte, contact from Joey Logano’s Ford turned the No. 10 Chevrolet of Danica Patrick and ruined her night.

Patrick’s immediate instinct was to get revenge, but she realized that wrecking Logano at Charlotte would have no impact on his run for the championship since Logano had won on the previous weekend at Kansas and was guaranteed a spot in the Chase’s Eliminator Round.

Martinsville, site of Sunday’s Goody’s Headache Relief Shot 500, is another matter. With points reset, and with the remaining eight Chase drivers entering the race on equal footing, revenge could be devastating.

That’s why Logano has taken measures to ensure Martinsville won’t become a payback track.

“We’ve actually talked about it since then, and I feel like we’ve come to a good conclusion of what happened there,” Logano said. “That’s in the past. That’s in the mirror, and we’ll move forward.”

From Logano’s point of view, the hatchet is buried, but the driver of the No. 22 Team Penske Ford still has to hope that Patrick doesn’t decide to bury it in his back.
