Already having announced in April his retirement from full-time NASCAR racing after this season, Earnhardt entered the race 22nd in the standings and winless in 2017, meaning that he faced a must-win situation to qualify for the 16-driver playoff field on Saturday in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Raceway. Through 25 races, he has 10 top 10s, including the last 5 straight races. "We had some odd luck, but when we didn't have bad luck, we didn't capitalize".
"We just need to go faster", Logano said.
"I didn't think I was going to have enough speed". The team is still the same team that nearly won the championship a year ago. We had a long summer. We had a long-run vehicle, though, that was really fast. But the 2003 series champion has been coming on strong of late after what he called a slow start to the season - he's had four top five and two top 10 finishes in the last seven races. "There'll be a big hurt in your heart, because you feel like you deserved to be in that group". "When you race with Kyle, you race with the best".
Earnhardt had said Friday he hadn't allowed himself to think much about a fairy-tale ending to the season.
As is always the case, the Richmond race will be pressure packed for a select few drivers and teams.
"It's on us", Earnhardt said Saturday night about missing the playoffs. "So, yeah, no, we aren't real comfortable with it just because in that position you are not really guaranteed anything".
Being part of those "10 weeks of hell", the Chase, would in truth be heavenly for Logano, the Cup runner-up a year ago.
"That's all we could do to try and win", he said. "We're just lacking speed in general".
