It should have been no real surprise that Joey Logano posted another top-five finish Sunday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Coca-Cola 600. After all, he was second in the Sprint All-Star race a week earlier.
But this might surprise you: Logano now has an average finish at Charlotte of 9.55. That's better than any other active Sprint Cup Series driver. It's also better than David Pearson, who won 14 poles at CMS, or Richard Petty, Bobby Allison or any of the sport's other legends.
In fact, Logano's average finish at CMS is second best in NASCAR history, trailing only 1960 series champion Rex White (9.0).
