Logano controversy

Thu., Sept. 12, 2013

Tiny Front Row Motorsports asked for a deal from Penske Racing in the closing laps of last weekend’s race at Richmond and then helped make sure Penske’s Joey Logano made the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship by having one of its drivers back off, according to an Associated Press review of radio communications. David Gilliland’s spotter tells his crew that Logano’s team wanted Gilliland’s spot on the track “and they said they’d probably be able to help us in the future,” according to the review of Front Row’s radio communications. A short time later, Logano passed Gilliland on a restart and finished 22nd – one spot ahead of Gilliland and good enough for a berth in the Chase field. Logano bumped Jeff Gordon out of the Chase, which begins Sunday. – Associated Press
