Joey Logano likes to play in the dirt.
The former NASCAR Cup Series points champion has also engaged in his share of mudslinging.
Having gone up against grudge-holding Kevin Harvick and Chase Elliott, Logano understands what the two feuding drivers are experiencing.
He has been there.
It is all games, he said.
NASCAR’s Kevin Harvick-Chase Elliott Feud Adds Postseason Drama

The Harvick-Elliott conflict continues to dominate Cup Series headlines.
Slated to meet with NASCAR officials Tuesday, Harvick and Elliott do not appear ready to settle their differences.
No Christmas cards this year.
The current feud started in the playoffs. In the final race of the Round of 16, Elliott cut off Harvick late in the race. Immediately after entering the garage area, the two engaged in at least two heated discussions. The first was a public exchange along pit row. The verbal confrontation continued inside a race team hauler.
If there was any illusion the two drivers settled their differences, Sunday’s mid-race actions during the Bank of America Roval 400 proved otherwise.
Harvick’s tap delivered Elliott into a retaining wall. Elliott raced back to keep his playoff chances alive. Harvick, meanwhile, crashed on lap 389, eliminating the Stewart-Haas Racing team from postseason contention.
For NASCAR fans who love drama, they got it.
Joey Logano driving away from garage feuds
Even though the media-driven rivalry is personal to Logano, he is turning away from the playoff conflict. Over the past few weeks, Logano has remained focused on his team. He earned 42 points with a seventh-place finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway’s road course last Sunday.
Entering the Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 500 race at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday, Logano ranks seventh in the driver standings with 4,013 points, 52 behind leader Kyle Larson.
“As far as the whole Chase and Harvick thing, I am not a horse in this race,” Logano told nascar.com. “So, I can be out of that one. I can see both sides of the story, though. If there’s one thing, I think we all can probably agree on watching it back is that I’d be mad on either side of it.”
“Games are played every day,” he added.
Logano is steering clear because he’s been the target of both Harvick and Elliott.
With Harvick, Logano has engaged in a decade-long standoff, dating back to Pocono Raceway in 2010.
With Elliott, it’s a little more recent. The two clashed at Bristol Motor Speedway last season.
Logano recalls the 2015 conflict, wants to stay clean
Logano remembers 2015.
An unsettled score with Matt Kenseth resulted in ill-timed retaliation at Martinsville Speedway. It proved to be a pivotal moment for Logano, who eventually dropped to sixth place in the season standings.
During the initial stages of the race at Martinsville, Logano appeared to have the dominant machine until Kenseth targeted him with fewer than 50 laps remaining. Kenseth took out Logano for spinning him earlier that season.
