“I don’t see myself following Kenseth, but things have changed between us, I tell you that,” Truex said Thursday before a Toyota employee day event at its Plano, Texas, headquarters.
Logano won Sunday’s race, and Truex finished third after Logano executed a bump-and-run on Truex in the final turn.
Afterward, Truex told NBCSN, “I’m just not going to let him win (the championship). I’m going to win it.”
Four days later, Truex firmly established he wouldn’t wreck a competitor to win a race or a championship.
“I am who I am who I am,” Truex told ESPN. “I race how I race. You just can’t have one race not go your way and completely change everything about yourself.”
Truex also revealed he has communicated with Logano via text message, an exchange he initiated “to see what he’d say.”
