Ryan Blaney, and 2014 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Champion, Kevin Harvick, got into it on the race track over the weekend at Martinsville.
The race saw Harvick punishing Blaney’s bumper all race, along with the two slamming doors at one point, and Blaney brake checking Harvey. This is what Blaney had to say according to nascar.com:
“Obviously, we weren’t happy with each other,” Blaney said. “Both of us had our conversations and what we were upset about. I felt like we handled it fine. It was a stern talking-to, but I have a lot of respect for Kevin. He helped me a lot when I first got started a handful of years ago. Just Martinsville racing pretty much. We had a talk and I think we’re fine right now. I’m sure we’re over it and those we’re just to reassure we were good.”
The Blaney-Harvick confrontation took a back seat to the confrontation after Denny Hamlin wrecked Chase Elliott. Blaney and Harvik seem to have resolved their differences; it doesn’t appear that Hamlin and Elliott have. Hamlin has said he hasn’t spoken to his rival about the wreck, and Elliott won’t talk about it.
