Joey Logano: “I feel like some people are just going to complain."

Joey Logano is under a lot of criticism after causing a wreck in the last race. Logano has accepted it and is aware that it is part of the sport.
“I feel like some people are just going to complain. And no matter what, there’s going to be somebody complaining about something.

You just can’t make everybody happy. If everyone races too clean, and it’s just a gentleman’s race, no one is going to want to watch that. Oh, I just let him go and he let him go. What’s that?” Joey Logano said.

Logano believes that exactly such scenes are what NASCAR fans want. “Fans want to see drivers hate each other. That’s just what it is. There is a level of respect out there, and give and take, an eye for an eye, and those types of things out there, but I don’t think fans want to see everybody hold hands and sing Kumbaya together.

We’re not doing that. That’s not going to happen. And I don’t think anybody wants that to happen. So I think there’s a balance. Maybe it was a little extreme this week. It was probably a little extreme. But everyone is pushing hard,” Joey Logano added.

Joey Logano on the mistakes

Logano also explained how mistakes occur during the race. “You know you got to get around them so you make these big moves. Oh, I’m going to try and out brake him here, and I’m going to really send it in there because I got to pass him.

And I’ve got a car that’s more durable. I got to get by him unless I’m going to stay behind this car and finish 15th. I got to move forward. And you send it down in the corner and you get out of control. You just go too fast.

And that’s what you see happen in Turn 1 not just on restarts but other times, too. That was the big passing zone. If I don’t pass him here, I’m stuck behind him for Lord knows how long. So I got to go. That’s what those mistakes are,” explained Joey Logano.
