Kevin Harvick may have clinched the regular season title with his win at Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway, but other drivers weren’t quite as lucky as the 44-year-old driver for Stewart-Haas Racing.

Both Chase Elliott and Joey Gase were eliminated on the sixth lap of the Drydene 311. The wreck at “The Monster Mile” was all set into motion when when Ricky Stenhouse Jr. spun on the frontstretch following contact from Joey Logano. In the ensuing chaos, Elliott ran into the back of Kyle Busch’s No. 18 Toyota, sustaining race-ending damage to the front of his car. Busch had to pit for repairs and ultimately placed 11th in the race.

Erik Jones was also forced to pit for repairs, while Gase spun out and hit the wall, which also effectively ended his race day.

Gase finished last, while Elliott placed 39th.

When it was all said and done, Logano ultimately took responsibility for the multi-car wreck.

?I screwed up. I don?t know any way better to put it,” Logano said. “We raced each other hard and I was trying to make the bottom work and my car was tight. I got a little loose down into three which kind of sent me up the race track and there was a pocket of air that if your front is really close to someone?s left rear tire the nose really takes off.

?I am not making excuses for the mistake. it is on me. I got in that pocket and then got started really going up the race track and I barely tagged him. I am not sure if I actually tagged him or not but it was enough to spin him around and I needed to be further away to protect the damage to our car and countless others. Like I said, I apologize to him and his race team and the others involved. I got myself in a tight spot and I didn?t do a good job getting out of it.?
