Joey Logano started 20th and finished an impressive third in Sunday’s Go Bowling at the Glen at Watkins Glen International. The driver of the Shell-Pennzoil Ford Mustang picked up points in both stages, including a stage victory at the end of Stage 2. The 90-lap event began under rainy conditions, with all teams starting on rain tires to begin the event. Logano would come to pit road when the track dried enough for slick tires less than 10 laps after the start. The early stop means he would come home sixth in Stage 1. Logano would begin Stage 2 from inside the top-five. Strong moves around Kyle Busch and Michael McDowell gave Logano the lead, where he would remain and hold off Busch to win Stage 2, his fourth stage win of the 2022 season. Logano would pit at the stage break and restart outside the top-15. Logano would steadily work his way back to the front, including an impressive restart with less than 10 laps to go. Logano would run near the front of the field in the Shell-Pennzoil Mustang, bring home a third-place finish.
“It was crazy and I am ecstatic about what we did. We got the stage win, and usually, if you get a stage win here you bury yourself, which we did. We were 27th at the start of the third stage. We passed a bunch of cars and got to 17th and then we got stuck around 15th or so. I have to give it to Paul (Wolfe), he put two tires on it and gave us some track position and then we had a couple of more good restarts and it ended up as a top-three. Pretty good.”
