Joey Logano says he's spoken to Danica Patrick and is not concerned she will retaliate against him.

Logano spun Patrick during the Oct. 11 race at Charlotte and she was given permission over her team radio to retaliate. She later remarked that wrecking Logano would have no effect on his title chances because he'd already earned a spot in the third round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

The Chase field has been reset, though, and Logano heads into Martinsville Speedway this weekend as one of eight drivers trying to advance into the finale. A win in any of the next three rounds sends a driver to the Nov. 16 finale with a shot at the title.

Logano took responsibility for the accident with Patrick.
