Are you sure you’re not looking at it in a bias Joey fan perspective?? Cause I mean, if you can say someone is only saying it because they are anti Joey, as a Joey fan it can be said you only see it this way because you’re a fan.One thing you are forgetting is that fans are rationalizing it one way and Joey completely a different way. Think about this if you are the 22:
You have no wins this year. You aren't locked in. Byron is.
You have the faster car all day.
The only way Byron can beat you is on the restart where the 22 has been a rocket all day long.
Byron to do so gives you zero room even makes minor contact to take the lead.
The 22 clearly feels that was intentional (probably was so Byron could take the lead lol).
With 2 laps left you can pass clean for sure and risk the 24 making a major move that wrecks you and you don't win, thus not locked in.
You do the safest thing possible that served two points...you move him out of the way to one prove a point, two cross the finish line in the safest way imaginable and secure a spot in the playoffs.
Stop thinking about the situation in a biased anti-Joey FAN perspective and see it from the driver's point of view. Since playoff racing started this is becoming more and more normal. The stakes are too high. Blame NASCAR, not the driver's.
