Daytona 500 champion Joey Logano momentarily forgot about his wedding ring again after winning the race…
24-year-old Joey Logano is on cloud nine after winning the Daytona 500, marking the first major win of his career.

This may explain why he fumbled a question in his press conference. Logano answered a question about him previously losing his wedding ring.
“I hope I don’t lose this one. This one’s harder to replace, I think,” Logano said to NASCAR.com.
Logano immediately realized his mistake and said that he takes it back while saying that his wife would be “impossible to replace.” The NASCAR champion had married his girlfriend, Brittany Baca, in December 2014.
Getting married may have been exactly the fuel that Logano needed to win the Daytona 500.
However, it will likely turn into a source of criticism toward him since he forgot about his wedding ring as the most important one of all.
It remains to be seen whether this is the case or if Logano gets a pass since he is young and was just coming off an emotional win.
