Laps Led: 29
Joey Logano wheeled the No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford Mustang into Victory Lane in the first of two Bluegreen Vacations Duels Thursday night from Daytona International Speedway. Logano led the final 29 laps after winning the race off pit road during green flag pit stops as teammate Ryan Blaney pushed the No. 22 across the line to fend off a hard-charging outside lane.
“A total team effort. I said it out there on the start-finish line, it takes a total team effort to win out here on a superspeedway. You’ve got to execute the strategy correctly. You’ve got to execute everything on the racetrack. Coleman did an amazing job up there painting the picture of what was going on behind me, getting ready for the intense moment that was going to happen on the last lap. You know it was going to happen. It’s just staying calm and making the right blocks at the right time and positioning ourselves to where I was going to be in the front there at the end. Blaney helped me a lot there at the end, sticking with his Ford friend, instead of pushing that Toyota, so it worked out really well.”
