Tissot watches - Logano wins award

First published: 17-08-2009

Joey Logano and his team were celebrating on Sunday after the group were awarded with a prestigious award.

The No. 20 Home Depot Toyota team won Tissot watches' Pit Road Precision Award at the Sprint Cup Carfax 400 at Michigan International Speedway after spending the smallest amount of time in the pits of anyone else on the entire field before finishing on the lead lap.

For his abilities, Logano earned his men $5,000 (£3,050) and a Tissot watch for himself after spending just 204.366 seconds in the pit lane, before rolling into the points with a seventh-place finish.

It follows a turn of luck following a major accident Logano had earlier in the month in a performance which saw rival Robby Gordon drive him into the fence and set Logano's car on fire.

Commenting on the incident on the day, Logano said: "Eventually it's going to turn around and bite him because he races everyone the same way, just like that. I don't know if this is the one place he thinks he can run good so he beat the hell out of everybody. What goes around comes around."
