On Tuesday evening, Logano announced that he will pilot a Ford F-150 for ThorSports Racing for the event, and sponsorship for the effort will come from Hang 10 Car Wash.

Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas was an incredible race. It had fierce battles for the lead, natural cautions, and overall the race just felt like a perfect example of what you’d like to see in a NASCAR race.
Then, a late race caution changed everything. And what was once a hotly contested, yet clean, race devolved into a caution-breeds-caution wreck-fest in the closing laps.
“We didn’t see anything that crossed the line,” Elton Sawyer, NASCAR’s Senior Vice President of Competition said in an appearance on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio on Tuesday. “Our DNA for 74-plus years has been aggressive driving.”
