Joey Logano finished third in Sunday night’s NASCAR All-Star Race at the Texas Motor Speedway. After starting ninth, Logano struggled with track position through the opening two stages, finishing eighth and 11th respectively. At the end of the second stage, the Shell-Pennzoil crew ripped off an incredible fast pit stop paired with Logano masterfully executing the timing lines to win the $100,000 pit crew challenge. The pit stop locked Logano into the third starting position for the 50-lap final stage where he’d finish fourth in the 140-lap, four stage event.
“First off, congrats to my guys on pit road winning the pit crew challenge tonight. Those guys have been working extremely hard and that was a great effort. It was good to have ourselves in a position to start first, second and third as a team at the beginning of the last stage. Congrats to my teammate Ryan Blaney on the win, if we can’t win, glad he could win it for everyone at Team Penske.”
