MagnaFlow ambassador Joey Logano takes first NASCAR win of the season
Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. (June, 2016) – MagnaFlow ambassador Joey Logano brought home his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win this weekend in Michigan at the Firekeepers 400 and now automatically qualifies for the CUP championship race.
After starting from pole position, Logano nearly saw the day disappear in the first turn as the car got extremely loose. Fortunately, the 26-year-old New England native was able to gather up the car and work back to the lead before making a green flag pit stop at lap 40. Having stretched his lead over the majority of the field, Logano was able to remain on the lead lap when the first caution flag flew at lap 44. As the field cycled through pit stops, Logano regained the lead and didn’t race outside the top-five for the remainder of the race.
“What a great race car. To win here in Roger’s backyard and Ford’s backyard, this is always a big win for us here. What a crazy race with the low downforce and with more cautions and more opportunity to screw up pretty much, said Logano. What a fun race, racing with Chase (Elliott) and Kyle Larson. It is fun to see the young guys up there racing. I am not alone up there as a young guy anymore. I have guys up there younger than me racing for a win.”
