After winning Heat Race 4, Logano started fourth in the main event and made steady progress forward, running second at the halfway break in the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Mustang. Midway through the second half of the event, Logano seized the lead and never looked back, becoming the first ever NASCAR winner at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in the first race for the NASCAR Next Gen car. The win is Logano’s second Busch Light Clash triumph (2017 Daytona, 2022 L.A. Memorial Coliseum), and Team Penske’s fifth Busch Light Clash victory. Logano is set to become a father for the third time tomorrow as the family welcomes the addition of a baby girl.


“I can’t believe that we’re here. L.A. Coliseum, we got the victory with the old Shell-Pennzoil Mustang. This is an amazing event. Congratulations, NASCAR. Such a huge step in our industry to be able to do this, put on an amazing race for everybody. I’m out of breath. I’m so excited about this. It was a big win. This is big. Having a baby, my wife is having a baby tomorrow, our third one. Pretty big weekend for us.”
