NASCAR’s Joey Logano Takes a Swipe at F1 in Live Broadcast

2 min read

NASCAR recently wrapped up a race weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and something interesting happened during the broadcast of Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race. NASCAR Cup Series drivers Austin Cindric and Joey Logano, who were in the broadcast booth, decided to share their thoughts on Formula 1 (F1).

As the race unfolded with less than 50 laps to go, Riley Herbst was chasing John Hunter Nemechek for the lead, trailing by less than a second. In F1, when drivers are within a second of the car in front, they have a special feature called DRS (Drag Reduction System). It’s activated by a button on the steering wheel and opens a slot on the rear spoiler, reducing drag on the longest straightaways.

In the midst of the race, Cindric pointed out that Herbst had a chance, saying, “As long as he stays within that one second, Formula 1 DRS range.”

That’s when Logano chimed in with a laugh, rejecting the idea, “What?! We’re not doing that! This is so much better than that!” Cindric agreed, stating, “100% agree.”
