Feud Between NASCAR Teammates Logano, Keselowski Still Simmering

Team Penske teammates Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski remain at odds after a final-lap crash between the two at the Daytona 500.

In case you missed it, Logano was in front of Keselowski when Keselowski attempted to make a race-winning pass. It resulted in a nasty eight-car wreck — including three Fords on the Penske team.

On Friday, Logano admitted he had not yet spoken to Keselowski.

“The goal is to move on and not say, ‘You raced me hard, so I’m going to race you hard’ and now we’re beating the doors off of each other every week and it grows and grows and grows,” Logano said. “You can’t seek revenge or just, ‘Well, you made my life hard, so I’m going to make your life hard.’ That’s childish. We’re adults.

“If you do that, it’s the most selfish thing you can do because you’re not just hurting yourself or hurting him, you’re hurting all the people that work on that car and what did they do to you?”

Keselowski threw his helmet at his wrecked car in a move of clear frustration following the accident.

“I don’t feel like I made a mistake, but I can’t drive everybody else’s car,” he said. “So, frustrating.”

Logano and Keselowski race again Sunday at the Daytona road track, and Logano said he intends to speak with Keselowski before then.
