Joey Logano s'impose sur la terre à Bristol

We expected mayhem, we were not disappointed. Postponed by a day, the Bristol gravel race has kept all its promises.

With modified segments before the race and different regulations, the seventh meeting of the season was lively.

Winner of the Trucks race earlier today, Martin Truex Jr. (Joe Gibbs Racing) quickly positioned himself as a serious contender by taking the lead in the race shortly before lap 20.

In full control and lucky while the accidents followed one another (Alfredo, LaJoie, Golobic or even Almirola quickly to the mat), the man from New Jersey consolidated his lead in the lead pushing even his closest pursuers to more than a second . But halfway through the second segment, Martin Truex Jr. lost ground and saw Daniel Suarez (Trackford Racing Team) burn politeness to him to take the lead.

The Mexican then seemed to be heading for a segment victory but it was not without counting on Joey Logano (Team Penske) who went on the offensive to steal this second scratch before the last 50 laps.

The driver of the Ford Mustang N ° 22 then showed solidity by avoiding the various clashes and especially by resisting the frantic return of Denny Hamlin (Joe Gibbs Racing) in the final laps to cross the finish line first.

Joey Logano offers his first victory of the season, the 27th of his career. He is the 7th different winner in as many races this year. This is the fifth time in history that this phenomenon has occurred after 1991, 2000, 2003 and 2014.
