Joey Logano: 'I did a good job of screwing up anytime I could'

   Sprint Cup Series driver Joey Logano had one of the few cars that could keep up with race winner Kevin Harvick early-on during Sunday's Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway but by the end of the race he and his No. 22 Team Penske team had fallen out of contention, in part due to a pair of pit road speeding penalties.

   Logano finished 10th and led 47 laps - the second-most of any driver. But he was none-too-easy on himself for Sunday's result.

   "That was a poorly executed race on my behalf. I didn’t do a good job. I did a good job of screwing up anytime I could," Logano said after the race. "The speeding on pit road – I found that. I put us in a hole. Not that we were going to win the race either way because we weren’t fast enough but I maybe cost us two or three positions with what I did. 

   "I don’t know. We have some work to do. I have work to do with myself first and then we have work to do with the car, too.”
