Hamlin ended up with the success since Logano finished fourth and McDowell fifth. Logano expressed his displeasure with McDowell at a dialog on pit road after the race.
“he ’so rushing, too, I figure and we are able to ’t win these things alone. We’ve proven that quite often but we did what we could do.
Still, using a win at a Daytona Duel and also a Top Five end in the 500, Logano felt great about heading into Atlanta next week.
“the momentum was transported by us out of where we ended this past year, so it’so pretty good.
Because of his role, McDowell said he went with the driver that he believed gave him the best opportunity to succeed.
Asked about his own dialog using Logano, McDowell said: “I simply told him my team doesn’t pay me push Joey Logano to a win. This ’s not exactly that which I get paid to do.
“At 200 miles per hour, I made a splitsecond decision about what was the fastest car and that had the greatest chance of winning the race and that’so I went.
