AVONDALE, Ariz. — Joey Logano did it again.
Yes, he won another Chase race — his seventh since 2014, more than any other driver — but he also did something else.
He lost his wedding ring. Again.
You might recall Logano lost his wedding ring shortly after his December 2014 wedding. He and wife Brittany were kayaking in Costa Rica when they went down a waterfall and flipped. They never found the ring.
Logano lost his wedding ring after exiting his car in victory lane Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway.
This time, the ring was found.
“This has almost lasted two years’’ Logano joked. “This one has lasted pretty long. It’s a survivor today.’’
So what happened to his ring?
“I don’t know, I know I had it before I got out of the car, and I don’t know, after that, I was so excited, my hands were wet, and it just kind of slipped, I guess. I don’t know.
“I was actually sitting down doing an interview … and I usually play with my ring a lot, and I looked and I said, ‘Oh, no, my ring is gone. Not again.’ And it’s that same feeling when I lost it the first time. But at least we found it this time. That’s really cool. That’s good. Good thing (Brittany) doesn’t lose her ring. My ring don’t cost that much.’’
