Engines blow up title hopes
Placeholder Image
Joey Logano dominated the second round of the Chase last year, winning all three races and leading most of Talladega en route to the win. Logano won this year’s Talladega race but it was only his first win so far in the Chase.Two of the favorites had engine problems and were eliminated from Chase contention. Only 42 laps into the race, Martin Truex Jr. had his engine blow up and his title hopes went up in smoke.
