Logano had been closing in quickly on Byron for several laps before running into the back of him coming out the final turn.

“You’re not gonna put me in the wall and not get anything back. That’s how that works,” Logano said.

“He’s just an idiot,” Byron said. “He does this stuff all the time, I’ve seen it with other guys.”

“Yea, he’s just a moron. He can’t win a race, so he does it that way.”
