NASCAR: Logano wins in Atlanta, breaks Bow-tie dominance


It came down to the wire for the 5th week in a row with a wild final few laps that saw polesitter and reigning Cup Series Champion Joey Logano take his first win of 2023 and his first ever win at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

In a stark contrast to the prior 4 races, Logano led a dominant Ford squad as eight of the Blue-Ovals started in the top 10 at the beginning of the race. Runner-up Brad Keselowski brought home his best finish of 2023 while Toyota’s Christopher Bell brought home 3rd. Corey LaJoie, nearly a winner in the fall 2022 race here, finished a career best 4th to the elation of the crowd.

The Cup Series heads to the Lone Star State for it’s first road-course race of the year at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX. Racerviews will be onsite to capture the action. 2022 Winner Ross Chastain looks to double-up on his success, but he’ll have some road-course-ringers to challenge him.

Trackhouse Racing will be fielding a 3rd car for the event, piloted by former Formula 1 World Champion Kimi Räikkönen while Rick Ware Racing will be hosting Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button. Hendrick Motorsports will also be tossing in a ringer in the form of IMSA Corvette Factory Driver Jordan Taylor as he takes over the 9 car as Chase Elliott continues his recovery from a snowboarding accident.
