Joey Logano after Gateway victory: If I did it to him, I knew he would do it to me

Joey Logano showed a high level of quality, maturity and in the race against Busch he deservedly won the Gateway cup race. He was overjoyed after all. “What a packed house! Thanks guys for coming out. I hope you guys enjoyed that race,” he said for motorsport.“It doesn’t get much better than that.

Racing for the lead like that with Kyle was a lot of fun, crossing each other back and forth. “I knew it was coming. If I did it to him, I knew he would do it to me. We crossed back and forth there a couple times in the last lap.

It’s nice to get a few wins on the season here and start collecting those playoff points. “I’m way out of breath here. What a great car, though. Really fast. I kind of messed up in qualifying, and Paul (Wolfe, crew chief) made a great call putting two tires on.

Blaney did a great job with the push down in (Turn) 1, which kept me close at least and being able to make the move”. Ryan Blaney was of great help to him. “He did a good teammate move there and then being able to push me and give Team Penske a chance to win the race.

That was cool to see that Ford power lined up on the bottom (lane). That was special to see,” he said. “Like I said, it was a good race crossing each other. Who would have thought we had slide jobs like that here? I thought we would be running towards the bottom, and we were running way up top and crossing each other.

It was a lot of fun to race here, and looking forward to coming back”.

Kyle Busch after the race

Kyle Busch is disappointed because he is aware that he could have done more, but Kyle can also be satisfied with this.

Busch answered the motorsport reporter's question if he could have done more? “Not even close. Did you see me about wreck off of (Turn) 4? Cold tires, firing off on that restart – didn’t have the help behind me.

Got into Turn 1 by myself and was too far back. “When you are the guy on the inside, you just flush the guy on the outside and it’s over. I got a crossover though but threw it into (Turn) 3 too far. It chattered all four tires. Just didn’t have any grip to get off the corner well enough to be on his outside”.
