NASCAR at Bristol results: Joey Logano wins chaotic Food City Dirt Race

It wasn’t pretty, but Joey Logano managed to weave his way around a few multi-car wrecks and emerge victorious at Monday’s Food City Dirt Race.

Drivers struggled with visibility and control on the Bristol Motor Speedway track, the site of the NASCAR Cup Series’ first dirt race since 1970. Logano and his crew embraced the challenge, held off the rest of the field in the final stage and overtime and snagged their first win of the season.

“It was definitely a challenge,” Logano said. “When they watered the track the last stage, that kind of changed everything. . . . Nobody really knew what to put in the car. We were able to adjust the right way throughout practice and get into victory lane. It’s great.”

With Logano’s victory, there have now been seven different winners through seven Cup Series races this year.
