Joey Logano and Chase Elliott comment on wreck at the end of Bristol race


With three laps remaining in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway on Sunday, leader #9-Chase Elliott slid up into second place #22-Joey Logano, putting him into the wall and ruining their chances for a good finish. Logano ended up 21st, Elliott 22nd.

They each commented after the race:

WHAT WAS YOUR TAKE?

Logano: "He wrecked me. He got loose underneath me. The part that’s frustrating is that afterwards a simple apology — like be a man and come up to someone and say, ‘Hey, my bad.’ But I had to force an apology, which, to me, is childish. Anyways, man, we had a good recovery with our Autotrader Mustang and had a shot to win. That’s all you can hope for. I passed him clean. It’s hard racing at the end, I get that. It’s hard racing, but, golly, man, be a man and take the hit when you’re done with it."

WE JUST TALKED WITH JOEY LOGANO AND HE GAVE US HIS TAKE. WHAT’S YOUR TAKE OF WHAT HAPPENED?

Elliott: "Oh, just going for the win, you know, trying to get a run underneath and got really loose-in. I don’t know if I had a tire going down or if I just got loose on entry. But, as soon as I turned off the wall, I had zero chance of making it. I’ll certainly take the blame. I don’t think so, I just got loose and got up into him. Yeah, you know, I feel like that was my shot. He was really good on the short run and I feel like I had to keep him behind me right there in order to win the race with only three or four laps to go. I hate we both wrecked. But you can’t go back in time now."

Here's how it all went down in Thunder Valley! ?The catbird seat pays off big time for Brad Keselowski!!
