Another playoff contender fails to finish at New Hampshire

Joey Logano entered Sunday’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway one spot out of the postseason standings, but he did not get the result he was looking for on Sunday afternoon.

Smoke appeared from Logano’s No. 22 car around Lap 172 of the Overton’s 301, so he took his car to pit road.

According to NBC Sports, the issue was track-bar related, and NASCAR announced a rear suspension part was taken from the car during its stop on pit road.

The car was taken to the garage, and Logano’s day came to an end.

Erik Jones was behind Logano in the standings entering the race, and he also failed to finish. Both will still be on the outside looking in going into next Sunday’s race for the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
