No. 22 NASCAR Ford Has Quiet P2 Run At Richmond March 2024: Video

Joey Logano hasn’t exactly had a season worth writing home about so far, but he rebounded at Richmond Raceway on March 31st, 2024, putting the No. 22 NASCAR Ford Mustang Dark Horse across the line in second.

Logano quietly stalked the leaders for most of the night, and had a shot at the win on a NASCAR Overtime finish after Kyle Larson’s No. 5 Chevy Camaro ZL1 spun out from contact with Bubba Wallace’s No. 23 Toyota TRD Camry. Logano restarted third behind Denny Hamlin’s No. 11 Camry and Martin Truex Jr.’s No. 19 Camry. When Truex made contact with Larson, Logano was able to slip by to claim second place, chasing Hamlin across the line just 0.269 seconds behind, his first top five finish of the season.

“It feels good, and it hurts at the same time because we were so close to winning the race,” Logano said after the race. “I mean, it’s a race track that we expect to run well at, it’s our best race track and we’ve been consistently in the top five and having shots to win.”

He added, “I started pressuring the 19 [Truex] at the end of that long run, and he got to racing hard with Ross [Chastain] trying to stay on the lead lap,” Logano said. “I said, ‘This is my opportunity.’ I got Denny [Hamlin] to burn his stuff up trying to pass me, and I said, ‘OK, this is my chance,’ and I got close to him and burned my stuff up with about three to go, and I wasn’t going to get him.”

Meanwhile, Brad Keselowski’s No. 6 Mustang finished eighth, tailed by the No. 17 Mustang of Chris Buescher in ninth.
