"Sliced bread" -- 18-year-old NASCAR Sprint Cup rookie Joey Logano's most-often used nickname -- didn't exactly fit NASCAR's appetite late Saturday night at Southern California's Irwindale Speedway.
Logano, as a video a little later in the post will dramatically illustrate, was closing on race leader Peyton Sellers on the final lap of the Toyota All-Star Showdown when the Joe Gibbs Racing driver in the black No. 08 car made a bonzai attempt at the lead and slammed Sellers into the Turn 4 wall as they came to the checkered flag.
Logano ended up crossing the finish line first -- a nose ahead of then-second place Matt Kobyluck -- as Sellers spun and collected multiple drivers in a big crash. The finish, however, wasn't to be for the young Logano, winner of the 2007 edition.
