Quote:Joey Logano Quotes: “I have a lot of confidence heading back to Chicagoland this coming weekend in the Nationwide Series. Adam (Stevens, crew chief) and all of the guys on this team are really the best team in the Nationwide Series garage these days in my opinion and they bring great cars to the track every weekend. We are clicking on all levels and that shows with our results. We’ve been strong on all types of tracks and I think that shows as well. We’ve won on superspeedways on two-mile tracks and on short tracks. All we are missing is a 1.5-mile win this season and I’d love to knock that off the list this weekend.

“I’ve had a lot of success at Chicago in the past. I’ve got a win there and run really well there in the other couple of races. I am pretty pumped to get back to the Nationwide Series double duty races as well. I’m the type of person that hates just sitting around, especially when there is a Nationwide race at the same track on the same weekend. If there is a race, I want to be in it. Plus, the extra track time it always good. Even my crew chief on the Cup side, Jason Ratcliff, says he loves when I run the Nationwide races because there is nothing better than more seat time. There is always something you can learn out there.”

From the Pit Box:

Adam Stevens Quotes: “Chicago really kicked our butt last year. We have made a lot of progress with our intermediate track program since then. We see a lot of green flag racing here and it is extremely hard to pass, which means track position will be critical. Chicago is what they call a ‘cookie cutter’ 1.5-mile track, but it has some characteristics that make it unique. The back stretch isn’t really straight and you are always turning. There are quite a few bumps all around the track that you need to account for. The high groove opens up as rubber is put down and that can also change your setup and your strategy. Fuel mileage is frequently a concern here. This place takes a little bit of something from all the intermediate tracks, which makes it a crew chiefs dream but also a nightmare.”

I'm pretty sure they made an adjustment on the last stop and the car just went in the extreme wrong direction. I know he was complaining about the car being loose off earlier in the race and they tightened it up, but I don't know what the last adjustment they made was for. They might have gotten it too tight and he just fell way back.

When the team got the car back to the garage after the race, they diagnosed a rear shock went bad causing the late-race handling issues.
