· Joey Logano started second and finished second in the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang.

· Throughout the first stage, Logano battled a loose condition on corner entry and exit, leading crew chief Brian Wilson to make a wedge adjustment on the first stop of the race.

· Logano restarted deep in the field for the second stage as most of the lead lap cars pitted on the prior caution. Using the fresh tires, Logano raced back to the top-five in the first four laps of the second stage, finishing in the third position.

· Through the opening run of the final stage, Logano remained quiet on the radio, only indicating he needed more overall speed, but the balance of his Ford Mustang was extremely close to neutral all the way around the 1.54-mile speedway.

· A fast final pit stop by the Discount Tire crew helped Logano cut down a three-second gap to the second place running Christopher Bell, ultimately passing him in the closing laps, finishing the race in the second position.



“I don’t think we were even close. Kevin played with us all day long. He just kind of rode along out there and would run a few hard laps when he needed to and when he had enough distance then he’d chill back out, but Kevin is just really good at it. It doesn’t matter what car he’s driving he’s just really good at Atlanta and apparently we’re second-best to that. It was a decent run for our Discount Tire Ford. A second just always stings a little bit, but I don’t know where he’s faster than me. He’s faster all the way around Atlanta is what I figured out today. It’s not just one spot. He’s able to go when he needs to and he’s just good at it – Cup cars, XFINITY cars – he’s just really fast. Congrats to them. They deserve it and we’ll just keep our heads down and working hard.”
