(CHICAGO) — Joey Logano is out to prove that he belongs in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
Logano said Thursday that radio communications being investigated by NASCAR that could be construed as evidence of collusion with Front Row Motorsports were nothing but normal in-race conversation.
“We got one win and eight top-5s and 14 top-10 finishes,” Logano said at a pre-Chase media event at Navy Pier. “If you look at those numbers, that is every bit of the top three or four that have happened this season. I don’t feel bad about being in the Chase at all. We deserve to be in it if you look at those numbers.”
These issues have become the dominant storyline entering the first race in the 10-race Chase, which is set to take place Sunday.
