Joey Logano calls for self-improvement

Joey Logano led 47 laps in Sunday’s Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, including the first 27, but he was quick to take the blame for the No. 22 Ford’s 10th-place finish.

Under caution on Lap 187 of 267, Logano incurred a pit road speeding penalty that ruined any chance of a top-five finish, though the Daytona 500 winner rallied from 16th on the subsequent Lap 193 restart to claim his third straight top 10 of the season.

“That was a poorly executed race on my behalf,” Logano said. “I didn’t do a good job. I did a good job of screwing up any time I could. The speeding on pit road – I found that. I put us in a hole. Not that we were going to win the race either way, because we weren’t fast enough, but I maybe cost us two or three positions with what I did.

“I don’t know. We have some work to do. I have work to do with myself first, and then we have work to do with the car, too.”
