JOLIET, Ill. (AP) - Joey Logano is the first championship driver out of the playoff-opening race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
He dropped out of Sunday's race at Chicagoland Speedway when his engine quit with 91 laps remaining in the rain-delayed race.
The pole-sitter had already gone to pit road once complaining of cylinder problems in his Penske Racing Ford and was just trying to make it to the finish in his first appearance in NASCAR's Chase. Instead he'll finish 37th in the first of 10 races.
Logano was embroiled in the scandal-plagued race at Richmond last week because he was aided by other drivers trying to help teammates qualify for the Chase.
