Saturday night, while racing just behind eventual winner Matt Kenseth, Joey Logano forced Harvick up the track and caused the No. 4 car to bounce off the wall. Harvick ended up with a flat tire and finished 11th while Logano finished sixth.

"You can't just drive somebody straight in the corner into the fence," Harvick said after bumping doors with Logano and engaging in a shouting match with the driver. "He kind of did the same thing to me at Talladega and I told him, 'The karma train is coming after you' and it bit him right in the ass. So you can't do that."

But Logano insisted he was "trying to help, really" and brushed off Harvick's remarks as typical of a driver known for engaging in confrontations.

"He's just Kevin," Logano said. "He's an instigator, right? It's the same thing he is every other time he talks to someone. It's the same old crap. It just happens all the time. No big deal. It's whatever."

After the race, Harvick showed his displeasure by door-slamming Logano on the cool-down lap. (USA TODAY)
