NASCAR Ends Busch-Logano Feud, and “Everything’s Great”

AVONDALE, Ariz. — On Friday, NASCAR held a 15-minute meeting with Joey Logano and Kyle Busch, who were involved in a post-race fracas at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last week.

The conference’s purpose was to eliminate any further conflict between the drivers and explain what is expected from them going forward.

“I tried to explain that I made a mistake underneath [Busch]. He asked for some data, and I was able to show him that,” Logano said. “I guess time will tell. We’ll see, I hope he’s able to see that and know that I was sincere about it but time will tell.”

Logano was open with the media and emphasized that the on-track incident with Busch last week was not intentional. He believes he got through to Busch.

When Busch spoke, he was more tight-lipped about the session with NASCAR officials. He told the media, “Everything’s great!” four times when asked about his thoughts on the meeting.
