Joey Logano started ninth and finished 17th in the No. 22 Autotrader Ford Mustang on Sunday afternoon at Sonoma Raceway. Logano and the Autotrader team were one of the few cars that made forward progress in the opening stage with track position proving to be at a premium. The team elected to remain on the track until the conclusion of the first stage and collect second place points. The team would again elect to run long, scoring the Stage 2 win as most of the field elected to pit during the stage. After playing for the stage points, Logano was forced into offensive mode trying to regain track position. The Autotrader Ford would soldier on and finish the race in the 17th position.
“We had a good day in terms of stage points and getting a stage win. That was on our list of objectives going into the race. We just got trapped by that last caution which made it really tough to get that track position back. We didn’t have the fastest car this weekend, but we had a decent Autotrader Ford Mustang and got a playoff point.”
