If you like 3 wide racing at 200 mph you have to love NASCAR Talladega Superspeedway. Joey Logano had bad luck in the beginning of the race as he did a lap with a jack stuck underneath. He came back from that & was able to beat Car 44 Brian Scott with a Margin of Victory: 0.124 Seconds. Logano said “It’s never a layup here at Talladega, it’s always close. You never get a big lead. Todd made some good adjustments during the race and found some speed in the car, so that was pretty neat to see some of that. We got that track position and just hung onto it. I was able to stay on the bottom and try to run the bottom and keep everyone in line, and that worked out really well.”
