Joey Logano wrecked hard on the final lap of Saturday’s XFINITY race and he crashed hard again in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway on lap 182 of 188. He failed to finish the race and was credited with a 25th-place result.
His failure to finish was significant because it was the first time in 62 races that he was not running at the end of a Cup race. The last time he failed to finish was at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in July 2014. That DNF was also caused by an accident. May 2 - 1:16 PM

Joey Logano posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway. His top speed was 196.290 mph.

Logano posted this fast lap as part of an early-session draft intended to give Ryan Blaney a faster speed in case they needed to fall back on time to make the show.

During an early green flag segment of the Toyota Owners 400, Joey Logano lost a lap that he was not able to make up until a lap-269 caution waved. With only a little more than a fourth of the race remaining, he surged to eighth and earned his sixth top-10 of the season.

Logano has two other top-15s in the remaining three races, but he has not looked nearly as solid as fantasy owners have come to expect. Logano is still a good fill-in pick, but it has been difficult to create a roster around him in 2016.

Joey Logano made two unscheduled pit stops at about the one-quarter mark of the Food City 500 at Bristol. He had a vibration and the crew let a tire go uncontrolled on that green flag pit stop. He battled back to finish 10th in the final rundown.

Logano and the entire Penske Racing organization needs to stop making mistakes in the pits before they get on very many fantasy rosters. Logano has not been terrible, but he does not look like the driver who contended for the 2015 championship either.

Joey Logano has scored top-five finishes in three of his last six races. Every other result was outside the top 10, which has kept him high in the points while making him hard to handicap. He finished third in the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Logano’s season has not been bad, but without consistency it is difficult to handicap him. That makes him a questionable fantasy value most weeks.

The two tracks could not be more dissimilar, but one thing is the same from last week’s STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway to this week’s Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. Joey Logano will line up on the front row. With a speed of 193.306 mph, he was 0.187 seconds slower than pole sitter Carl Edwards. Logano will line up on the outside pole.

Last week Logano faded early and finished 11th on the short track. The last time he lined up on the front row of a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track, he finished second from second at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this spring.
Apr 8 - 4:02 PM

Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano posted two of the fastest laps in the first practice session for the Duck Commander 500 at Texas. The No. 2 car went 192.164 mph; the No. 22 was 192.143, which put them second and third on the chart.

Both Penske drivers have been solid on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks for the past two seasons. They will both challenge for top-10s in Saturday night’s race and should make their way onto a lot of rosters.
Apr 7 - 7:02 PM

Joey Logano led the field to green for the third consecutive time at Martinsville Speedway, but he did not stay there long. He lost the lead to Paul Menard on lap 22, fell outside the top five at about lap 45, and from the top 10 five laps later. During the first long green segment, he ultimately lost a lap before recovering to finish 11th.

Logano might have salvaged a top-10 if not for damage sustained in an accordion-style accident. The repair work on his front nose popped up and blocked his view in the final 12 laps, which caused him drive by watching the inside curb.
Apr 3 - 7:48 PM

Joey Logano won his third consecutive Martinsville Speedway pole with a speed of 97.043 mph. He will lead the field to green this Sunday for the STP 500.

Logano posted the fastest time in each of Friday’s three qualification sessions and starting up front has been a good omen in the past. He won the pole for this race last year and finished third. He was the pole sitter last fall and was in route to Victory Lane before getting intentionally wrecked by Matt Kenseth late in the Goody’s 500. In fall 2014, he started on the outside pole and finished fifth. Logano is setting himself up as one of this week’s favorites.
Apr 1 - 5:15 PM

Joey Logano is tied with Denny Hamlin for the fifth-best average running position in the first five races of the season. Their mark stands at 8.4.

Logano lost more than 10 positions at Phoenix with a mistake on pit road. He lost a lap after the team failed to fill his Ford with fuel, but he also missed the top 10 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Logano is not quite as strong this season as last and that impacts his handicap.
Mar 25 - 2:50 PM

Martin Truex Jr. will race Joey Logano differently after a confrontation between the two drivers at Auto Club Speedway sent the No. 78 into the wall, according to NBC Sports.

Logano is not making very many friends on the track, but that will happen when one drives aggressively. Without that aggression, however, drivers don’t get to the front of the pack. It’s a double-edged sword.
Mar 23 - 12:31 PM

Joey Logano has scored top-10s in every other race this season. His seesaw this week ended on an upswing with a fourth-place finish in the Auto Club 400.

Logano told reporters after the race that he had fourth-place car all weekend and could not complain about finishing fourth. He challenged for the lead for a while and spent three laps at the head of the field. Auto Club Speedway has been kind lately.
Mar 20 - 7:12 PM

Joey Logano does not have one of the 10-best, three-year average finishes, but he could still be one of this week’s top values. He finished 39th in 2014 because of a broken rear gear to mar his average.

Logano’s other pair of starts with his current team ended in top-10s with a best of third in 2013. He did not show consistently fast speeds in the first practice session, however, and should be considered a threat only to finish among the top 10 and not the top five.
Mar 18 - 2:53 PM

Joey Logano has earned 15 top-10s in his last 17 attempts on minimally-banked courses one-mile or less in length. Included in that streak is a pair of victories at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Richmond International Raceway in 2014.

Six of Logano’s last seven attempts on this track type ended in top-fives and he started on the front row five times with four poles. He is a good value in games that offer points for qualification as well as a driver’s race result.
Mar 8 - 6:46 PM

Joey Logano caught and passed Kyle Busch on the final lap of the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and finished 0.675 seconds behind teammate Brad Keselowski.

Logano was leading the pair of Penske drivers and the two tried to work together to catch Busch. It became apparent that Keselowski was faster with about 10 laps remaining and Logano lost ground. This was a solid finish for the Young Gun, however, after last week’s struggles at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
