NASCAR – Joey Logano breaks the bank

The No. 22 Ford of Team Penske was unbeatable on Sunday in North Carolina on the Charlotte oval. By leading 227 of the 334 laps in the Bank of America 500, Joey Logano scored a double blow by winning over defending champion Kevin Harvick (Stewart-Haas Racing? Chevrolet), but above all, by securing a place in the next round of the Chase 2015, the Eliminator Round.

Logano was not disturbed by the postponement of the event, initially scheduled for Saturday, but postponed due to weather conditions and the rain that fell on the region. Martin Truex Jr (Furniture Raw? Chevrolet) placed third ahead of the first Toyota of Denny Hamlin (Joe Gibbs Racing) and Kurt Busch (Stewart-Haas Racing? Chevrolet) who completed the top 5.

Matt Kenseth (Joe Gibbs Racing? Toyota)
, who had taken pole position, had significantly less success. After leading the race for a while, a first contact with Ryan Newman sent the 2003 champion into the wall. Having left after several repairs, the driver of the No. 20 Camry returned to the track but made another mistake, finishing second to last.
