Kyle Busch didn’t mince words when he promised he would get revenge against Joey Logano after Logano spun him out during the main event at the Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum.
Following a restart with 65 laps to go, Logano drove it in deep going into turn 3 and ran right into the rear of Kyle Busch sending Busch to the rear of the field.

Busch would eventually recover and finish the race in third behind Martin Truex Jr. and his teammate Austin Dillon.
During a press conference following the race, Busch promised payback on Logano.
He said, “Logano didn’t get hit by nobody. He just flat out drove through me. So he’s got another one coming. I owe him a few.”

Busch would go on to lament how the race turned out saying, “Last year’s show, I felt like was relatively clean and good racing. Some bumping, some banging, but we could run long stretches of green flag action where today was — I would call it a disaster.”
He explained, “The disrespect from everybody of just driving through each other and not letting everything kind of work its way out. I mean it’s a quarter mile. It’s tight quarters racing. Actually, this is probably how it should have gone last year. So we got spoiled with a good show the first year. So maybe this is just normal.”

Logano was questioned about getting into Busch and he admitted it was his fault. He told FOX: NASCAR’s Bob Pockrass, “I just overdrove. I screwed up. It was my mistake.”
He continued, “I don’t know why. It’s still kind of a mystery to me because I re-fired and I came off of 2 awful. But no rear grip off of 2. And then I down in the corner and I still had no rear grip, and I slid down into the 8.”
“Thankfully, he was fast enough to get all the way back up there,” Logano concluded. “I felt pretty bad. But I’m glad he was able to get back up there.”

Logano and Busch have history with each other. Back in 2017 at Las Vegas, Busch confronted Logano on pit road by sucker punching him in the face.

Busch’s sucker punch came after Logano wrecked him on the final lap of the race as the two were racing for third spot behind eventual winner Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Larson who finished second.
Video replay, seen below, shows Logano get loose on the bottom of the track. As he tries to chase his car up the track he runs into Busch sending him down the track and into the pit road.
Logano would eventually finish in fourth behind Chase Elliott while Busch finished in 22nd.
What do you make of Busch’s threat? Will he get payback on Logano? Could that payback look similar to Las Vegas in 2017?
