Joey Logano isn’t sitting on his laurels from winning this past Monday’s rain-delayed Duck Commander 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.
Logano on Thursday afternoon was fastest in the first of two practice sessions for Friday’s VFW Sports Clips Help a Hero 200 Nationwide Series race at Darlington Raceway.
With no Sprint Cup practice scheduled for Thursday, Logano covered the legendary 1.366-mile, egg-shaped track at 169.380 mph, the only driver to exceed 169 mph.
