Logano the Million Dollar Man
Saturday night, NASCAR’s All Star Race took place at Charlotte Motor Speedway. This race was on the North Carolina 1.5 mile track in what is considered “NASCAR Central”.
Like all sports, there’s a competition each season for the best of the best. It’s called “The All Star” event.
Usually the only thing on the line, is the competitor’s pride. But with NASCAR, there’s much more. The winner gets $1 million.
The million dollar man was Joey Logano in the number 22 Ford. This came after a fierce battle with Kyle Larson in the closing laps.
Trying to block the stronger car of Logano, Larson buried his car into Turn 1 as Logano edged ahead. Larson’s number 42 Chevrolet got loose and sailed up the track into the outside wall with less than two laps left.
The new three segment race format for this event, made it a wild and crazy Saturday night. A lot of passes for the lead, including the next to the last lap pass for the win.
And there were a lot of cars tore up. Including the cars of Matt Kenseth, Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart, who was competing in his final All Star Race. Stewart, in a rant, said he was glad this was his last one.
With Larson cracking the wall, Brad Keselowski had the opportunity to grab second. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. was third, Carl Edwards fourth and Kurt Busch came in fifth. See where your driver finished.
At the end Logano said, "What a crazy battle for a million dollars at the end. This is the All-Star Race. It's special just to be in the race. Forget winning it, it’s just special. It's neat to be in Victory Lane."
