It was a feud weeks in the making and it came to a head Sunday afternoon in dramatic fashion at Martinsville Speedway. In the aftermath, a favorite in NASCAR’s Chase was taken out of the race while leading by the driver who had suffered a similar fate two races prior.
The victim was Joey Logano. Logano had started from the pole in Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Goody’s Fast Relief 500 and led a race high total of 207 laps but on lap 453, Logano saw his chance for a fourth straight win end. Matt Kenseth who had crashed a few laps earlier, slowed and waited as leader Logano came by. Kenseth turned up and into Logano sending him hard into the outside wall. Kenseth’s car stopped in the middle of the turn while Logano’s car stopped at the bottom of the turn. The crowd roared as Kenseth climbed from his car.
The crash came two weeks after Logano and Kenseth tangled at Kansas Speedway. MORE>>>
