The incident between NASCAR drivers Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano Sunday at Martinsville Speedway may be far from over. Whether it ends with another on-track incident or action by NASCAR remains to be seen.
Sunday’s incident was actually a continuation of a feud that erupted two week prior at Kansas Speedway. With five laps reaming, Kenseth who was the class of the field, was bumped by Logano and sent spinning. Logano won the race while Kenseth was forced into a must win situation to advance in the Chase at the next race at Talladega. Logano won the Talladega race while Kenseth finished 26th and was eliminated from Chase contention.
Sunday Logano had started from the pole and led a race high total of 207 laps, but on lap 453 saw his hopes for victory come to a crashing halt. Kenseth who had crashed a few laps earlier in an incident with Logano’s teammate Brad Keselowski 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. Kenseth was scored with a DNF in 38th, Logano also with a DNF in 37th. MORE>>>
