Logano takes Duck Commander 500 under green-white flag

Heavy rains put a damper on the inaugural running of the Duck Commander 500 over the weekend, forcing a one-day delay at Texas Speedway. But that wasn’t the trouble to befall drivers as they faced a spate of mishaps including damaged hood hinges and broken cowl flaps suffered from driving too close to the jet dryers on the track. Even worse was the fact that Dale Earnhardt Jr’s car caught fire after he accidentally drove into a patch of grass causing him to crash in the outside tri-oval wall 12 laps into the race. While he admitted his own mistake, acknowledging the fact that the “ride heights of the cars did not allow them to run through the grass,” flying debris from his car rained down on teammate Jimmie Johnson damaging the hood and windshield.

In the end, however, it was Penske’s Joey Longano who claimed victory beating out Jeff Gordon under a green-white flag.
