It was Logano’s second victory in the season-opening exhibition race that previously had been held on the 2.5-mile oval at Daytona International Speedway since its 1979 inception.

On a 0.25-mile temporary oval constructed inside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Logano won in his No. 22 Ford by 0.877 seconds over Kyle Busch.
