NASCAR Supporters and drivers were all on the edge of their seats during Sunday’s Geico 500 Cup Series race at the Talladega Superspeedway with Joey Logano’s car flipping 60 laps into Stage 1.

The number 22 ride was thrown airborne after contact with No. 11 Denny Hamlin car, just missing the roof of Bubba.

Matt DiBenedetto was leading the pack in his No. 21 Wood Brothers Racing Ford car with No. 12 Team Penske Ford Blaney pushing behind him  Joey Logano, Blaney Teammate, was in the third position.

The incident occurs when Denny Hamlin, the No. 11 Toyota tried to make a move towards the bottom and pass Logano’s No. 22 ride, However Hamlin was being push by Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s No. 47 forcing him to clipped the left-rear of Logano’s car. Logano then spun into the pack behind him, went airborne after being hit and skidded on its roof before settling back on all four wheels.

Joey Logano voice his frustrations with strong words about this package following his accident 

“I don’t know what to think,” Logano said. “It’s a product of this racing, and on the one hand, I’m so proud to drive a Cup car that is safe that can go through a crash like that, and (I) can get out and speak about it. On the one hand, I’m mad about being in the crash, and on the other hand, I’m just happy I’m alive. On another hand I think, when are we going to stop? Because this is dangerous doing what we’re doing. I’ve got a roll bar on my head. That’s not OK.

“I’m one hit away from the same situation Ryan Newman was in (last year in the Daytona 500). I just don’t think that’s acceptable. A lot of it’s due to this big spoiler and big runs, the pushing, and all that. It’s no one’s fault; Denny’s trying to go, and the 47’s (Stenhouse) trying to go. It’s a product of this racing. We have to fix it, though, because someone already got hurt, and we’re still doing it. So, that’s not real smart.

    SO odd, that when the 22 is guilty of this, it’s ‘just racing’. When he takes flight, oh, no….. I suppose we’ll have to tolerate his dad again….

  4. Harder compound for the tires… much harder. No compound on the track….The cars will have to slow down or risk riding up, hitting the wall or spinning out… HARDER TIRES, not stickier tires!!!!

  5. Joey was all I on Saturday while he was in the booth broadcast the race but it’s a different story when he is racing. It just shows how big of a spoiled baby he is.

  6. Nascar is on life surport Just pull the plug now. This is not racingIf you. want to see wrecks just ride on I 4 between Tampa and Old

  7. I don’t think anyone made you get in that car if you don’t like it set out one or 2 tracks but just shut up your a race car driver for god sakes

      I like the way Kevin Harvick comments on wrecking, most of the time he says I can’t really complain a lot because I drive racecars for a living.
