At the NASCAR Cup race, Kevin Harvick clinched the victory and took another step towards the 2020 title. However, the real action unfolded behind him, involving Kyle Busch and Joey Logano.
It is safe to say that Busch was less than thrilled with Logano’s antics at Bristol. Speaking to FOX Sports, he declared, “He’s [Logano] nobody’s friend for a reason, so there you have it.”
Elaborating further, he insisted that he did not try any daring dive-bombs because he never thought about it. This is largely because most, if not all racers, try to win the race as cleanly as possible.
Kyle Busch also lamented that without the lapped car getting in the way, he could have driven on the inside or outside. Had that happened, he would have had a little more contact and a better run towards the checkered flag.
"[Joey Logano is] nobody's friend for a reason."

What else did Kyle Busch say?
After his little rant about Logano, Busch all but wrote off his chances in the Playoffs. He confessed that he will most likely be eliminated in Las Vegas.
The only positive he can take away from the Bristol race is the fact that he finished 2nd. Behind the duo were Erik Jones, Tyler Reddick, and Aric Almirola.
Meanwhile, Kyle Busch will be glad to know that Joey Logano could only muster up an 11th place finish. Additionally, Denny Hamlin was bitterly disappointed to find himself well down the order in 21st place. Meanwhile, pole man, Brad Keselowski wound up all the way in 34th place.
Logano likely became Kevin Harvick’s best friend, after he got in the way of Busch. At that time, Busch was leading the race, but the Logano hindrance meant that Harvick could sneak up and pull off a late pass.
As a result, poor old Kyle Busch remains winless in the 2020 season, although he was agonizingly close this time around.
