Logano Wins Overtime Restart in Phoenix

Joey Logano earned his second win of the season on the track that he will visit again later this fall in a winner-take-all championship battle. The Penske Racing driver was one of the fastest cars throughout the race, but mistakes on pit road threatened to ruin his afternoon multiple times. Kevin Harvick was the main challenger waiting to pick up the pieces should Logano drop them. In the end, it was Logano's No. 22 machine that had the legs on Harvick, as Logano was able to pull away on the final overtime restart to win his second race of the season.

This week, the series heads back east to Atlanta Motor Speedway. Harvick won his first series race at that track, and Logano's teammate Brad Keselowski won the last edition of the race in 2019. The track is the first 1.5-mile quad-oval this season and has seen three Ford winners in the last three outings.

UPGRADE

Joey Logano – Logano became the first repeat winner of the 2020 season, taking the checkered flag in an overtime restart at Phoenix Raceway on Sunday. His win was not straight forward despite having one of the fastest cars, but he persevered and battled hard to come out ahead of Phoenix master Kevin Harvick. He suffered multiple issues on pit road including an uncontrolled tire and a broken jack, but he would not be denied an impressive run back to the front to capture his second win
