Welcome to the Big Leagues Kid: Logano Flips Seven Times in Dover

Joey Logano already has a Sprint Cup win under his belt, but his real baptism by fire came last weekend on the “Monster Mile” in Dover, Delware, when he was involved in a nasty wreck that sent his car flipping a full seven revolutions.

Ironically, Tony Stewart, the guy who used to drive the car that Logano took over, was one of the primary players in the action that led up to the big wreck. Essentially, Stewart rear ended Logano at full speed when Logano was forced to brake hard to avoid smashing into another car. Stewart was very apologetic about the wreck to reporters.

With all of the aerodynamic work done on these cars over the last ten years, cases of flying Stock Cars have been fairly limited. Still, not every situation can be accounted for and no one, not even a highly paid team of engineers, can beat physics.

One thing that is amazingly clear though is that the Car of Tomorrow, while reviled by many NASCAR followers, is one safe automobile. The fact that Logano could escape under his own power with only a potentially soiled fire suit is an amazing thing. This would have been a surely fatal wreck not so long ago.

You’ve got to give the kid some credit. He’s hanging in there with the big boys, now he’s had his “big one. He gives a good account of what was going through his head to FoxSports.

Here’s video of the action:
