Recap:  Joey Logano drove his way to a seventh-place finish in Saturday's Ollie's Bargain Outlet 200 at Dover International Speedway after beginning the event from the same position based on his finishing spot in the first of two heat races to set the field. Logano worked his way to the fourth position by the end of the 40-lap preliminary event to earn the starting position. Logano kept the No. 22 Ford inside the top-10 of the main, 120-lap event until the first caution on lap 71. The Team Penske crew made air pressure adjustments on the four-tire stop, gaining two positions. Logano would drive the red and white No. 22 machine to the fifth position by lap 81 where he would remain until the final caution of the event on lap 109. The team remained on the track while other cars on the lead lap pitted, moving the No. 22 REV Group Ford Mustang to the third position. On the ensuing restart, Logano would find himself trapped in the low lane which had been disadvantageous throughout the afternoon and crossed the finish line in the seventh position.
Quote: "We just weren't fast today. We may have missed it at the beginning part of the race and made some adjustments to get better but gosh, we were just slow. There is no good answer behind it. We could have lucked into a second place finish if we were fourth instead of third on that last restart because the inside lane doesn't go. I don't know. That would have been a lucky second though and not representative if what we had out there today. The guys on this No. 22 REV Ford Mustang team are as frustrated as I am, and I have all the confidence in the world that we will get this turned around."
