race review

Joey Logano started 34th and finished 17th in Sunday afternoon’s AdventHealth 400 at Kansas Speedway. The No. 22 Verizon Ford team started the race deep in the field after a left rear tire failure and accident in Saturday’s practice session forced the team to a backup car. Team Penske mechanics spent over six hours preparing the car Saturday evening and Sunday morning in preparation for the race. At the beginning of the event, Logano struggled with the handle of the Verizon Ford Mustang. However, steady adjustments during the race positioned the team inside the top-20 and eventually in the top-10, including a ninth-place finish in the second stage. At the end of the race, Logano continued to struggle with overall speed, slipping back to 17th as the checkers flew.


“We lacked some overall speed today and just really fought handling issues during the race. Not the start we wanted to the weekend yesterday with the tire going down and having to go to a backup car. All the Team Penske crews pulled together and worked late last night to get our Verizon Ford Mustang ready for today. We’ll take some of the learning here and get stronger when we come back in the fall.”
