NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race Pit Note #10
Joey Logano wins Pennzoil Ultra Victory Challenge – Joey Logano, driver of the No. 20 Home Depot Toyota, won the Pennzoil Ultra Victory Challenge burnout competition held on Charlotte Motor Speedway’s front straightaway prior to Saturday night’s Sprint Showdown and Sprint All-Star Race. Logano scored 67 of 70 possible points by impressing a panel of five guest judges and accumulating bonus points for knocking down obstacles.
“I just went all out and tried as hard as I could,” said Logano. “That’s the good thing about this competition, is it’s not your own car you’re running the heck out of. If it was my own personal car, I probably wouldn’t have done as good because I would have been worried about tearing it up.”
Logano developed his plan for the burnout by watching second-place finisher David Reutimann, who went just before him.
“I watched Reutimann and thought he did pretty good at it,” said Logano. “I just tried to do something similar to what he did. I need to win some more races so I can get more practice at doing burnouts. You can never get enough practice at it.”
Reutimann’s runner-up effort earned a score of 61 from the judges, while Clint Bowyer was third with a score of 55 points. Defending event winner Kevin Harvick was fourth; Jamie McMurray was fifth; and Ryan Newman was sixth. Kyle Busch was disqualified after making contact with the wall.
