Ryan Newman has revenge on his mind after an altercation started by A.J. Allmendinger at Pocono on Sunday afternoon.

The No. 31 car was running up in eighth position late in the race when the No. 47 machine made contact and sent Newman spinning into the wall. By the end of the wreck, Newman’s Grainger car was left totaled and he would not return to the track.

Newman made his intentions abundantly clear following the race.

“It’s pretty obvious what happened,” Newman told reporters. “(Allmendinger) just ran out of talent. He has got one coming now.”

There were no reports on whether Allmendinger needed ice for that burn.

Dinger would go on to finish a disappointing 38th and fall a spot down to 22nd in points. While he admitted the incident was his fault, Allmendinger noted it was not intentional and threw in his own barb at Newman on Twitter.

It’s a difficult situation for both drivers considering that JTG Daugherty Racing, Allmendinger’s team, has a close relationship with RCR. Having a feud between two drivers practically on the same side of the garage isn’t healthy for either side.

Time will tell if the two drivers can come to their senses and put the incident in the past before the Chase begins. With both needing a strong finish to return to NASCAR’s postseason after making it in 2014, any retaliation from Newman might truly sever the partnership between the two teams.
