Joey Logano had an interesting relationship with his teammates throughout his career. Of course, every team will sometimes have a conflict due to a certain situation during the race, or a disagreement, but the most important thing is that these things are forgotten and remain a part of the past.

Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson's potential feud is one of the main topics lately. Many wonder what is the 'background' of everything and whether there really was a feud. Joey Logano spoke about the 'teammate problem' as a guest on SiriusXM Nascar Radio.

Namely, the relationship between teammates can sometimes be very complicated, considering that many look primarily at personal success, and only then team success. “Honestly, driver and teammate relationship could be one of the hardest things to do.

Because you have to work together to be successful and you have to race each other because you still want to win, and there’s feelings that get hurt there. Are you on my side or not? That’s the question that you ask a lot of times.

Are you on my side or do you just want to beat me? And it gets kinda tricky in those scenarios. At least with other competitors you know, well they just want to beat me and they’re not out there for me at all and we don’t have to work together so screw ’em all.

But with your teammate it’s different”. - Joey Logano said on SiriusXM Nascar Radio, as quoted by on3.com!

Joey Logano: Everyone wants to be the top guy

It is very difficult to function in a team where everyone looks at their own personal success.

Of course, every driver aspires to be the best and to achieve his goal, but it seems that many drivers are looking less and less at team success today. "Everybody wants to be a top dog in their company. Everyone wants to be the top guy, so that’s part of it too. It’s really tricky”.
