Joey Logano took the No. 22 Team Penske Ford to the garage before green flag for the NASCAR Playoffs race at Dover International Speedway on Sunday.
Logano brought the No. 22 down pit road before the start of the Round of 12 race because of a mechanical issue with the rear axle of the car. When the issue could not be resolved on pit road, Logano took the car to the garage.
