- Joey Logano started 19th and finished 36th in Friday night’s Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway after an early, multi-vehicle incident ended the night early for the driver of the Snap-on Tools Ford Mustang at lap 37.
- After starting 19th, Logano raced inside the top-10 in the opening laps, running lap times as fast as the leaders despite being stuck in traffic. Under the first caution at lap 8, Logano reported that the Snap-on Tools Mustang took off about a two loose but ,was able still able to make passes around the high-banked, concrete half-mile.
- Unfortunately, at lap 37, Logano’s night ended as he was unable to avoid a spinning car, bending the right front suspension on the Snap-on Tools Mustang, yielding the 36th place finish.
Quote: “It’s a bummer to end the night that early. I felt like we had a really good Snap-on Tools Mustang. We were at a disadvantage in qualifying rolling out fourth, but we were able to work into the top-10 early, just couldn’t avoid that wreck. I hate it for everyone on the Snap-on Tools team. That’s a group of employees that work hard every week in the shop and only get to come to the track a few times a yea and they brought a really good Ford Mustang tonight, just didn’t get a chance to show it.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
