race review

Joey Logano fought a tight-handling Shell-Pennzoil Ford Mustang from the onset of Monday’s Wurth 400 at Dover Motor Speedway as he battled through traffic in the early going. Logano worked his way up to 18th by the time of the caution on lap 81 when he came down pit road for four tires, fuel, and a round of adjustments to address a lack of turn in the corners. After crossing the line 15th in Stage 1, a fast stop by the No. 22 crew had Logano off pit road in ninth to start the second stage. However, the tight-handling condition worsened as the long, green flag run wore on, relegating him to a 28th-place finish in Stage 2. During the stage break, Logano made several stops on pit road to assess an issue with the right front before he had to make an unscheduled stop on lap 242, causing him to go five laps down. On lap 388, Logano spun in turn four and made contact with the outside wall which brought an end to his day.


“I don’t know. There was fire, so something broke. Something broke a long time ago, like halfway through the race. We were so slow and the car wouldn’t turn. Whatever it was, it finally broke.”

Logano is currently 13th in the NASCAR Cup Series driver points standings.
