Joey Logano started 24th and finished 25th on Sunday afternoon in the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion at Dover International Speedway. When the race began, Logano quickly raced inside the top-20, while reporting a loose handling Ford Fusion. When the first caution flag was displayed at lap 20, crew chief Todd Gordon called for a two-tire stop to gain the team valuable track position. Logano was able to maintain inside the top-10 until lap 46 when the team again pitted, this time for four tires and additional adjustments to the Shell-Pennzoil Ford. Logano later reported the car was good on longer runs and Gordon’s adjustments were working to the drivers liking. Unfortunately, the 22 team’s day turned south on lap 193 as Logano hit the wall following a right front tire failure. From there, the Shell-Pennzoil crew would battle back from the 32nd position, making pit stops to adjust camber, toe, chassis and other adjustments and repairs to the No. 22 Ford. The adjustments would serve to give Logano a car that could continue to make incremental gains, ultimately battling back for a 25th place finish.
