About time Joey started hitting back at drivers like Harvick and Biffle that think because he's young they can just walk over him. Joeys dad needs to be made to sit in the stands though. Joey and his crew can fight his battles.

As for Bodine...why make a big deal out of him coming back if he was only a start and park driver? I thought he was actually going to race. I'd rather see 39 or 40 cars start that were really going to race than letting these ringers in.

I agree with you on the Bodine thing... if thats all they have is the "Start and Park" cars. Cut the fields to 35 cars.... do away with the top 35 in points bullshit... 35 fastest cars make the race... 36 works in the Truck Series.

I though Joey was gonna cry...

I can understand Logano's frustration but all he did yesterday was make an ass of himself and his father's actions just added to his embarrassment. Family members have no place in in these type altercations and shouldn't be allowed to get involved. I wouldn't be surprised if his remarks about Harvick's wife don't come home to haunt him in the near future. Harvick is the kind of snake that will be laying in the grass waiting for his chance. Logano will get better results keeping his mouth shut and playing the same game.

It would appear that as many time as it was shown, the drivers were doing what they do is racing hard for position. Joey came down on Kevin's lane... As many saw the same. Boys lets not dirty the sport with this kind of behavior. And the comment about the wife is not called for, grow up little joe.
Maybe they should go back 30 years ago, ask the man with the cowboy hat. How it was done back then, the sport has no time for the whining, just driving. And for God sakes if you can't spell it don't write about it. Go Nascar.

I was very proud to see Joey stand his ground ,but do think he over reacted a tad , then again I understand him doing so tho as he has been shoved around by a few of the drivers.
Now that I have watched the replay of yesterdays race it was just a racin deal not an intentional move by either driver to wreck the other.
I do think the remark about Delana was totally uncalled for, but will admit I did snicker n I like Delana very much..but was just shocked at Joey sayin something like that.
I am almost sure Joey regets sayin it today tho ..or so I hope he does as she had nothing to do w/ what went on between he , Happy.
But when tempers flare things are said out of anger w/out thought sometimes. jmo
Another thing, Joey is just a kid , n I think he is just getting tired of being pushed around and finally just blew a fuse. lol
I agree his Dad does need to stay outta his fights! jmo

Was glad to see Joey lash out at the jerk. He pulled up there and intentionally got right up on him expecting to trash him...and I LOVED the comment about Delana, I've thought that for years.

I hope this changes Logano's driving style when he's in the position of following Harvick. I would love to see Harvick get turned towards the end of a race.

Yes Joey came down into that lane but Harvick suckered him down there. I've seen this game so many times! You get frustrated because you can't outrun somebody or think he should let you go and he just fights you every step of the way, a veteran like Harvick knows how to handle it and thats what he did. He could have avoided that incident but he suckered Joey into thinking he'd let him go and then rolled off the brake and held a wider line than Joey anticipated.

Its a dirty trick, and one that he'd have been smarter NOT to play on Joey, seeing as though the Gibbs boys are strong and the last thing he needs right now is enemies. He won't win a championship... JG boys are fast and now the 20 has motive to pay Harvick back, and the chase would be the perfect time. Revenge, served REAL cold.

I remember Ricky (the iron man) Rudd trying to mash Harvick's little yap yap mouth after Richmoind one year. Harvick's irritating wife had to stand up for him cuz he was so afraid of Rudd. Just like when he had to hold on to JPM's hands at Watkins Glen that year when JPM took little yap yap mouth up on his offer to fight. Harvick is a little yap yap mouth wimp with his balls in his irritating wife's purse.

I heard on Sirius NASCAR this afternoon that Delana was already offering pink ladies T-shirts for sale on their webb site that had a picture of her in her firesuit with a caption that reads "I wear the firesuit in my family". According to what Moody said, several thousand have already been ordered.

That's the only reason half the fans watch. Watch NHRA if you don't like driver contact.

No Way. Good for her. I think she looks great in her fire suit she stands by her Man. Joey wouldn't know about that being he's just an immature boy.

No worries Bronwoman, mommy will let you watch TV after you clean your room. It wasn't little homo Harvick that went after the Iron Man, it was little yap yap mouth's pit crew and his irritating wife (as usual). While little Harvick huffed and puffed into the mic, Rudd said "he's got that little yap yap mouth"...LMAO!

Just like when yap yap mouth picked a fight with JPM at Watkins Glen, and then had to do everything he/she could to hold JPM's hands so he didn't get b!tch slapped! That was scary for little yap yap mouth, cuz his wife wasn't around to stick up for him.

An oldy but a goody! NA$CRAP needs more of the real racers like Rudd. Little yap yap mouth hasn't done anything for the "sport" even though he's been in a top ride since his day one in Cup. Just look at Rudd at Daytona that year he brutally cartwheeled his car about 20 times, so they had to tape his eyes open for the race the next day as they had swollen and closed up. Thats The Iron Man!
