COMMENTARY: With last weekend being the first of a few breaks for the stars of NASCAR, it left many of writers and bloggers without much to cover. So we had to be creative during our off week and so I sat down and compiled a list of five drivers that are modern era villains. Of course you can agree or disagree, but let me know who you think are the five modern era villains of NASCAR in the comments below!
4. Joey Logano
Surprised? Shouldn’t be.
Logano has taken a lot of heat early on his career because he never lived up to expectations. He was discovered by Mark Martin and later nicknamed as Sliced Bread, as in the next big thing since.
Since then he has two Sprint Cup Series wins, including one that was won in a rain delayed race.
He also took down the Nationwide Series last season and dominated the season setting records. That made fans angry, especially when he wrecked a lapped car to get one of this victories.
This year, he has improved on track but has had a big mouth and some very aggressive actions on the track.
He has tangled with Denny Hamlin and Tony Stewart and left fans very angry with Logano. Logano had some choice words for Hamlin after Auto Club but that to his credit was before he knew the extent of Hamlin’s injuries. However, to go nearly a week before apologizing, doesn’t look good at all.
