SPARTA, Ky. -- Ryan Newman wasn't thrilled with the way he was raced by Joey Logano when the two made contact in Saturday night's Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway.
Newman and Logano touched racing down the front stretch in Saturday's race sending the No. 20 car into Clint Bowyer. All three drivers kept control of their cars but later Newman exited the race after blowing an engine.
The Stewart-Haas Racing driver then expressed his displeasure with Logano.
"I'm not really sure what's going on with the boy in that No. 20 car," Newman said. "He's got a few things to learn and I'm going to have to be the one who teaches him.”
“He lost control in the middle of [turns] three and four. I got into the back of him on accident, but I mean that is part of it. He lost control in the first place, I went to go drive around the outside of him and I don't know if he was half ways blocked me or what. It just about spun him around into the No. 15 and I guess if the No. 15 wasn't there it would have. Then he raced me really poorly and lack of respect wise. That doesn't go very far with me you can see from my past I react to that.”
Shortly thereafter, Newman's night came to an end when his engine blew up and he wrecked on Lap 209. He would wind up with a 34th-place finish.
