Loudon, NH- Heading into the late stages of today’s Camping World RV Sales 301 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway, it was looking like Team Penske would sweep the top two spots of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at the “Magic Mile.” Both Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano were the class of the field late in the race at the one-mile track in Loudon. But, Logano who was running second behind his teammate inside of 100 laps-to-go was taken out in a crash on Lap 211 of the 301 Lap race. It wasn’t a typical driver who took the Connecticut native out either as it was 72-year old Morgan Shepherd. Shepherd, was over 10 laps down at the time as he got into the back of Logano’s No. 22 Auto Trader Ford Fusion in the middle of Turn 3 and sent Logano’s Team Penske entry into the outside SAFER barrier. His day would end with a 40th place finish on a sun drenched Sunday afternoon in New England. For Logano, it was his third finish outside the top 15 in the last four races and fourth in the last six. It’s not the direction he wants to be heading in going into the week off. Although, his car was superb today as they did a lot with it especially being a backup car. The youngster blew a left rear tire in practice on Friday morning and had to go to backup as a result. The team work effortlessly this weekend to get it back to Logano’s liking and it was paying off. But, an unlikely victim took them out as Logano was left frustrated and disappointed leaving his hometrack. Eric Smith is the Lead Motorsports Writer for Race Review Online.
