Kevin Harvick calls out race-winner Joey Logano on restart tactics

Kevin Harvick was not happy with the way Joey Logano was handling restarts at New Hampshire.

Kevin Harvick finished second to Joey Logano at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, failing to keep pace with him on any of the late restarts. Most pinned that on Harvick, but Harvick, well, he pinned it on something else.

Harvick felt that Logano violated the restart rules on more than one occasion and was unhappy with NASCAR for doijg nothing about it. He claims that Logano was using frowned upon restart tactics and going before the designated zones.

It was like nobody was watching upstairs.

Talking to ESPN, Harvick said "NASCAR must not be able to see the lines on the restart there. The 22 (Joey Logano) was way early all day."

Harvick added in the press conference that followed, “I thought (the restart rule) was pretty clear ... You start in between those two spots. It was pretty evident he was a car length or two car lengths starting before that."

"It was like nobody was watching upstairs."

“Maybe I just need to be more aggressive on my restarts and start sooner than the double lines,” Harvick concluded.
