SPARTA, Ky. – Just when Joey Logano thought it was safe to go back in the water …
Before Sprint Cup practice began Thursday afternoon on the repaved Kentucky Speedway, Logano’s interview on NBCSN drew an unexpected interloper: Kurt Busch.
As seen in the video above, Busch made a shark fin while passing behind Logano during the interview.
Busch then looped back from the other direction, passing behind Logano again (and perhaps quietly humming the theme to Jaws).
“You have a shark behind you,” NBCSN analyst Jeff Burton joked. “You might want to be careful.”
Logano laughed, but recent history between the drivers hasn’t been so lighthearted. Busch and crew chief Tony Gibson were hot at Logano after the No. 41 Chevrolet spun on the final lap last Saturday at Daytona after contact with the No. 22 Ford.
But based off Thursday’s interaction, it would seem things were much less contentious a few days later.
