Joey Logano made a gutsy move on a restart late at Richmond to pass Jeff Gordon, which eventually led to him collecting his fifth top-five finish of the season. Logano dipped below the yellow line to overtake Gordon and did everything by the book.
Not everyone was happy about the move. Just to show his frustration, Justin Payne, a self-proclaimed Gordon fan, decided to take action on Twitter and tagged Logano. Let’s just say it didn’t go as well as he planned.

Payne quickly backed off his initial comments and noticed a backlash from fans of the Team Penske driver.
@joeylogano fair enough. Just frustrating that it was my driver lol

When you come to a Twitter race against Logano, you better have the horsepower to keep up. Payne clearly didn’t, so Logano dropped below the metaphorical yellow line again to lap him on Twitter. Just remember, NASCAR fans: Sliced Bread don’t play.
