Joey Logano had a very good performance at Phoenix Raceway but came short of the win and finished second in the race.

However, he was able to register his first stage win of the 2021 Cup Series season. But he had to pit under green-flag conditions because of the vibrations in his car.

Speaking after the race, Logano said:

“We did a good job maximizing our day with our Shell/Pennzoil Mustang. We were a second-place car and finished second, won a stage and second in the other stage, so a lot of points.

“I hate finishing second, though. It really stinks, but, overall, this has been a good racetrack for us. The last few times we’ve been here is first, third and second, so we’re all over it, just needed that last run not to have a caution.

“I think we were in a pretty good spot to maybe run that thing out, but, overall, that was where we had it.”

While Logano led the race high 143 laps, he came second best to Martin Truex Jr. who became the fifth different winner of the 2021 Cup Series season.

But given the struggles he had on the pitch, the work that his crew did was commendable in helping Logano finish second.

This was Logano’s second runner up finish in the 2021 season and a victory seems to come soon if he keeps up performances like this.
