Starting from the rear of the field proved to be no problem for @joeylogano on Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway’s Sprint Unlimited as he quickly was able to make his way up to the front, challenging @dennyhamlin for the lead through the final 10 lap stretch. When the checkered flag flew, though, he would come up short, finishing in the runner-up spot.
Logano feels if the caution hadn’t flown at the end, he was in the right position to take the win as things were aligning for him to receive a final push from @KyleLarsonRacin.
“If I was able to get that push from Larson before he got really loose, that may have gave me enough to push out in front of the 11 possibly, or, at least, to stay next to him for another lap and try to be door to door to cross the line,” he said. “But you know, overall, speedway racing sometimes it’s hard to pass for the lead for sure. I thought the restart was going to be a good opportunity to start next to the leader and try to jump out in front of him, and just didn’t line up perfectly tonight.”
