From the Marbles - NASCAR

Give Joey Logano credit -- he's not backing down from anyone on the circuit. Weeks after getting into a little tiff with Kevin Harvick (and his wife) over some on-track action, Logano and Ryan Newman had at it after Sunday's Michigan race. Here's what set them off:

Newman declined to comment, but Logano had the following words to ESPN:

He (Ryan Newman) races me way too hard, he races everybody too hard.  I’m not the only one that complains about it every week. And he just went in there and door-jammed me.  I was down there trying to save it and trying to save it.  When someone is right on your side it takes your air off.

I’m down there just hanging on and hanging on.  I saved it three times before I’m like, ‘I can’t save this one, he should have given me room by now.’  I will have to call and talk to him about it because I know I’m not the only one that complains about it, but I don’t know why he races everyone so hard.  I hear it from too many people.

Okay, maybe "had at it" is a little strong for the postrace lovetaps between these two. As NASCAR competition director John Darby put it, "There's been more pushing to get into a Wal-Mart." Still, you can see both drivers' points here. What's your take? Who's to blame, Newman for running hard or Logano for expecting Newman to relax a bit when back in the field?
