Joey Logano: "I couldn’t block them all" on final restart

Joey Logano appeared to have the win in hand at Kentucky Speedway until a late-race caution set up a sprint to the finish.

Logano battled Kyle Busch and muscled away the race lead with just under 20 laps to go. He then proceeded to pull away but with just five laps remaining, a spin by Bubba Wallace changed everything.

The caution flag flew and the race was sent into overtime, setting up a two-lap shootout. Logano had the lead for the restart but just couldn't hold back a charging Kurt Busch.

“The caution came out at the wrong time. It happens. You try to think through your notebook on how to have a good restart. I thought I was going to have a decent one but I got stopped on the left rear there when Kyle (Busch) got into me. That is what it is. That stopped all my momentum. The 1 (Kurt Busch) had a huge run and I didn’t have anywhere to go. I couldn’t block them all.

"I tried to stop the 18 on his right rear by side-drafting. I saw the 1 coming and felt like if I could get in front of him that we were so low at the time if I blocked the 1 he would just go to the middle and pass me. I felt like I couldn’t stop the 1. I was in a bad spot. Once I got stopped on the left rear on the restart I was a sitting duck and they just went by me on both sides.”

Logano led 19 laps but after being forced to the middle by the Busch brothers, the Team Penske driver fell all the way back to seventh in a disappointing result.

“It is frustrating when you are fast enough to win and you don't win ... yes it is frustrating.”
