Did Logano sin by wrecking Busch in Las Vegas?

Kyle Busch

NASCAR took a page from MMA on Sunday.

Martin Truex Jr. won the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but all of the post-race talk about was about a fight between Joey Logano and Kyle Busch.

On the race’s final lap, Logano wrecked Busch, who thought it was deliberate:

Angry about the crash, Busch went after Logano on pit road:

Here’s the fight from another angle:

Bill Simmons was impressed with Busch’s fighting approach:

Busch walked away from the fight bloodied and upset, threatening revenge on Logano.

Logano was unimpressed with all of that revenge talk:

One fan joked:

Here’s Truex Jr.’s reaction to the fight:

NASCAR fans had a mixed reaction to the wreck and the fight:

One fan was unimpressed with both drivers’ fighting ability:

Even before Sunday, Logano and Busch had a history:

And Logano is constantly causing trouble, as USA Today describes well:

In 2013, Logano and Denny Hamlin were battling for the lead on the final lap at Auto Club Speedway when Logano nudged Hamlin high and into the wall. Hamlin’s car came back down the track and hit a concrete interior retaining wall — at the time not covered by a SAFER barrier — and suffered a broken back.  Ironically, it was Busch who sailed past for the win. Hamlin missed four races.In 2015, Logano and Matt Kenseth were racing for a key victory during NASCAR’s playoffs at Kansas Speedway when, with five laps to go, Logano kissed Kenseth’s bumper and sent him spinning. Logano drove away to victory — his second in a three-win span. The move effectively ended Kenseth’s chance for a title. But Kenseth didn’t wait long for revenge, intentionally wrecking Logano two weeks later at Martinsville Speedway and snuffing his title run. NASCAR benched Kenseth for two races.

NASCAR vice president Steve O’Donnell said Sunday’s wreck is under review, but he doesn’t think it was intentional:

The Orlando Sentinel’s George Dias says regardless who was to the blame for the wreck, the post-race fight was good for the sport:

Busch’s post-race dust-up with Joey Logano and his pit crew will undoubtedly set NASCAR’s morality police loose on social media, although the view from the top on Monday seems to give the ‘all clear’ sign. … Every sport is in the business of selling tickets, establishing wicked rivalries, and sparking fan interest. So what was wrong with what happened again in the emotional post-haste at Las Vegas Motor Speedway?

What do you think? Was Busch justified in getting so upset about the wreck and then fighting Logano?
