‘Never-quit attitude’ pays off for Joey Logano at New Hampshire

Joey Logano struggled throughout the better portion of Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

But, Logano’s crew chief Todd Gordon and crew never gave up on tweaking the No. 22 Team Penske Ford, turning a mediocre day into a third-place finish at his home track.

"I will take a third place after all that," Logano said. "We were awful at the beginning of the race. We tried some new things and apparently they didn’t work, so we aborted mission in the middle of the race and got some speed back."


After his ninth top-five finish of the season, Logano is currently 5th in the points standings with a win at Michigan International Speedway under his belt.

"Overall, to recover to third after running 15th or 16th most of the race is pretty good for this team," Logano added. "We have a never quit attitude and it paid off today."

With seven races to go before the Chase for the Sprint Cup cutoff, that attitude and a comeback performance like he had at the Magic Mile shows they will be a force to be reckoned with for the championship.
