Joey Logano's reaction to the fight between Ty Gibbs and Sam Mayer

After the incident in NASCAR, when Gibbs attacked Mayer after he was nudged up the track by Mayer, there were many reactions from the NASCAR world, and one of those who reacted was Joey Logano, who had similar experiences.

“Do I agree with the way it went down? No, I don’t,” Logano said, as quoted by motorsport. “Have I done that type of thing before? Yeah, I have. Am I proud of it? No, not at all. But I learned from it at least”.

“I guess taking a deep breath and understanding the big picture and handling things correctly is probably the way to go. But we’ve all done dumb things,” he said. “It’s just as a driver, it’s just going to be out there in the open.“Two younger guys, ambitious to win and I wouldn’t say what happened on the race track was wrong, but I’d say what happened after was probably not the right direction”.

Aggressive driving

Logano believes that Gibbs has no right to protest with his aggressive driving and that opponents have only responded to that. “I don’t know if he had to go straight to fists right off the bat, but for what it was, if you’re going to race a certain way, you got to expect to be raced that way back,” he said.“That’s the driver code that nobody can understand.

That’s it. If you’re willing to push, then you’ve got to be willing to take some pushes.“That’s what it comes down to. If you’re willing to push for a win, and someone is willing to push for $100,000 behind you, it’s one for the other at that point.

That’s my opinion. Each one’s entitled to their own”. An interesting situation for both drivers, who will be fined, and they did not need that at this time.It will certainly be a good lesson for them in the future.
