With Jimmie Johnson, Clint Bowyer and Carl Edwards in the lead another name that’s recently been added to the Chase is Joey Logano.
Sunday’s Pure Michigan 400 was exciting rumble of incidents and strategy with Logano comes out as the victor and moving from the 16th position to the 13th position in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. This leaves him only 17 points from the 10th position with 3 weeks left to bridge the gap.
New to the racing scene, this victory was the first for him this season, the first for him at Michigan, the first for him with Penske Racing and only the third of his entire career. The youngest racer to have ever won in Michigan, Logano is a potential candidate for gaining a Wild Card entry that’s only available to players in the 11-20 positions in the Chase depending on their victories.
Sunday’s race saw Kevin Harvick in 2nd place followed closely by Kurt Busch, Paul Menard and Clint Bowyer. It started from the pole, dominating early, receding for a bit and coming back with a bang to the front with a bold move towards the bottom of the track from the third.
