Joey Logano won the NASCAR Xfinity Series race in Fontana in dominant fashion Saturday to provide another milestone in team owner Roger Penske’s career.
Logano, who normally competes in NASCAR’s premier Monster Energy Cup Series, led 139 of the race’s 150 laps in his No. 22 Penske Ford at Auto Club Speedway and repeatedly pulled away on restarts following caution periods.
Calling his car “amazing,” Logano said it “was one of those races that you feel relieved when you win” because “you’re supposed to win when you have a car that fast.”
It was the first time that a Penske car won a race in NASCAR’s second-level Xfinity Series at the Fontana track, which Penske built in the mid-1990s. Penske has three wins at Auto Club Speedway in the Cup series.
