race review

Reigning Busch Light Clash Champion Joey Logano started 17th in his return to Los Angeles and made the most of his opportunities to enter the top-10 by the feature’s halfway break. He fought a loose handling condition for a majority of the second half of the race, still Logano wheeled the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Mustang back into the top 10 by lap 81. Despite a flurry of late-race cautions scattering the field, Logano navigated his way in and out of trouble to salvage a 16th-place finish Sunday night.


“It’s clear the cars are closer now and that everyone’s more comfortable behind the wheel. Everyone knew tonight if you couldn’t get position on the restart – besides [Truex Jr.] and a couple others – it was tough to keep moving forward. Everyone from fifth to last was running the same speed. It just becomes a slug fest at that point. We’re eyes forward on Daytona.”
