Logano Takes Lead With Two Laps Remaining to Win $1 Million Exhibition Race
Joey Logano is still driving hard for his first official NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win of the season, and Saturday’s All-Star race victory may just be the stepping-stone he needs.
Logano outmaneuvered Kyle Larson with two laps remaining and held on for the checkered flag in May 21’s $1 million exhibition race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. This All-Star event featured many of the sport’s top drivers, and while it didn’t count in the Chase for the Sprint Cup standings, beating drivers like Larson and third-place finisher Dale Earnhardt, Jr. had to boost Logano’s confidence moving forward. The race provided an exciting finish for the throngs of NASCAR fans who gathered under the lights at this iconic Southern oval and cheered Logano on to victory.
Logano has raced strongly during the 2016 campaign, having notched three Top 5 finishes and six Top 10 finishes and holding 8th Place in the current Sprint Cup Championship Series points standings. A perennial favorite, Logano has given his fans plenty to cheer about and plenty of reason to believe that more trips to victory lane are on the horizon.
“We are very proud of Joey’s win against such an impressive field of racing’s all-stars,” said Wiley X Co-Owner and avid racing enthusiast Myles Freeman, Jr. “Joey has raced well and fought hard all season long. As is usual, he’s been a model of consistency and always gives his best effort on the track. We wouldn’t be surprised if this taste of victory gets Joey on a hot streak — and that could be a scary thing for the competition,” added Freeman.
