CLEVELAND, Ohio — Joey Logano is on the pole for NASCAR’s Camping World Cup 500 today in Phoenix. The question now is will former teammate Kyle Busch make it his business to track Logano down and bump him over.
Last week, the two came to blows on pit row. There were no penalties given to either driver by NASCAR. But race officials did have the two together for a sit-down. Both said all was fine.
Kevin Harvick is the defending champ and has owned the Phoenix track through the years.
