It's been a long season, but I think we can all agree that it's over way too soon! Off Season dreads aside, tonight we announced the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) Champion! The first thing Logano said when he got out of the car was, "We did it! We won the championship I can't believe it!" Logano was absolutely elated during his interview. "This team, Roger Penske, Todd Gordon, the pit crew- oh my god amazing."
Logano is a first time champion, and the 33rd MENCS Champion. "I couldn’t be more proud of them." Logano said of his team.
"We won the championship Marty [Snider] oh my god!" Logano exclaimed and then lightly shoved him. "What was going through your mind?" Snider asked. "Screaming just a. Lots of screaming. I’ve worked my whole life to get here." Logano's signature smile had been in place since he got of the car. Teammate Keselowski found Logano among the mass of people and told him congrats before he hugged him.
"I knew I was getting past that car no matter what." Logano said about the last few laps when he had to get past Truex for the win. The driver of the 22 went on to compliment his pit crew more. "Each and every individual on that team is the best in their position and they proved that today."
On stage when Logano was announced as the 2018 champion he said, "Its a dream come true to even hear those words along with my name." Then, "I'm not a champion these guys are champions." Logano was lucky enough to have his family with him on stage, his wife Brittany, son Hudson, sister Danielle and his parents. When Brittany came up the first thing she did was put Hudson in the MENCS trophy.
Congratulations to the 2018 MENCS Champion Joey Logano!

"I wanted to know what winning feels like. And it feels really really good."
