Joey Logano of Middletown, CT saw his hopes of pointing his way into the Championship 4 go up in smoke at Texas Motor Speedway Sunday (Oct. 17) … literally.
Right as the field approached lap 300, the No. 22 AAA Insurance Ford suffered an engine failure and billowed smoke as the caution flew for the fluid left on the track. Logano took his car straight to the garage area and was out of the race with a disappointing 30th-place finish.
The only real indication of a potential problem was the engine was “starting to maybe give up a little bit of power in that run,” Logano explained from the garage.
