Raybestos and Logano make Sprint Cup Series history
Growing up Joey Logano watched his first Cup race from the bleachers of the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. On Sunday, the native of Middletown, CT, became the youngest winner in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series history by winning the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 at the very same race track. Logano’s victory was the fourth of the 2009 season for cars using Raybestos brand brakes. In a tumultuous, rain-soaked race that saw 21 lead changes and 11 cautions, Logano received a free pass onto the lead lap after Scott Speed crashed in Turn 1 on lap 191. Logano then took the lead on lap 264 as the last car on the lead lap yet to make a scheduled pit stop. The race was stopped for the final time five laps later earning Logano his first career Sprint Cup victory.
“We had plenty of issues going on today, but we didn’t have any problems with the brakes,” said Greg Zipadelli, Logano’s crew chief. “Everything worked well. The brakes seemed to do what they needed to all afternoon, and in conditions like we had today that is imperative.”
