Joey Logano had to overcome a late-race penalty in the Pure Michigan 400 when he left equipment outside his pit stall after coming in for a two-tire stop. Logano was forced to start at the back of the lead lap cars in 17th and barely squeaked into the top-10 with a 10th-place finish.
This kept a top-10 streak alive at Michigan International Speedway and extended it to eight consecutive. Logano will be highly regarded next spring at Auto Club Speedway and when the series rolls back to this course in June. Aug 28 - 8:02 PM

Joey Logano won the pole for the Pure Michigan 400 with a speed of 201.698 mph. This gives him a sweep of the Michigan International Speedway pole and is significant for another reason. Prior to this weekend, Logano had the record for the fastest pole speed in 2016 and it came in the June FireKeepers Casino 400 on this same track with a speed of 199.557 mph.

Logano hopes to sweep Victory Lane at Michigan this year after winning from the pole in June. If he accomplishes that feat, he will truly have a perfect record on this track. Logano’s other Michigan pole came in 2013 and he won that race as well.

Joey Logano had a seesaw Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway, and ended his race exactly where he started. Logano finished 10th on Sunday evening after starting the race 10th Saturday night.

Logano struggled to find a good groove early in the race, which created some strife between him and his spotter. Once back up front, the relationship was healed but not the handling and Logano lost several positions late in the race. After winning the last two night races on this track, his 10th-place result was a disappointment.

Joey Logano has posted the sixth-best average finish so far in 2016. In the first 22 races of this season, he has finished 12.23 with an average start of 8.23.

Logano has earned top-10s in 14 of the 22 races, but his greatest strength has been his ability to earn top-fives, which he has done in 41 percent of his starts.

Joey Logano drove past Martin Truex Jr. and Brad Keselowski in the final turn of the last lap of the Cheez-it 355 at the Glen to finish second. It is his fourth consecutive top-five on a road course and his fifth result of sixth or better.

Logano had damage on his right front nose and splitter that cost him several positions on the final restart. Logano was one of this week’s favorites and earned significant fantasy points.

Sprint Cup driver Joey Logano (#22 Ford Fusion) won the Zippo 200 at The Glen, his 26th victory in 156 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races, driving the #12 Snap-On Ford Mustang.

This is his first NXS victory and ninth top-10 finish in 2016. It is his second victory and sixth top-10 finish in nine NXS races at Watkins Glen International (WGI). Paul Menard (2nd) posted his seventh top-10 finish in ten NXS races at WGI. Kyle Larson (3rd) posted his first top-10 finish in four NXS races at WGI. Brennan Poole (10th) was the highest finishing rookie. Elliott Sadler leads the point standings by 11 points over Daniel Suarez.

Sprint Cup driver Joey Logano (#22 Ford Fusion) won the Coors Light Pole Award for the Zippo 200 at The Glen with a lap of 124.552 mph driving the #12 Snap-On Ford Mustang.

This is his 31st pole in 156 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races. It is his first pole and 10th top-10 NXS start in 2016 and his second pole in nine NXS races at Watkins Glen International (WGI). Brad Keselowski (2nd) posted his ninth top-10 NXS start of 2016 and his seventh in eight NXS races at WGI. Paul Menard (3rd) posted his eighth top-10 NXS start at WGI. Erik Jones (13th) was the fastest qualifying rookie.
Aug 5 - 7:10 PM

Joey Logano has finished sixth or better in his last four road course races. He was also seventh in the 2013 Watkins Glen International race, and that bunching of top-10s makes him one of this week’s favorites.

It is impossible to say that he is flying under the radar screen since he is the defending winner of this week’s race, but Logano is still not the first driver who comes to mind on road courses. If your competition missed him at Sonoma Raceway this June, they are likely to miss him again at the Glen and Logano could be a great differentiator.

Joey Logano and teammate Brad Keselowski gambled on a race strategy no one else employed, but it did not pay off in a win. Logano challenged for the top spot, but got dropped out of the top five late in the going and finished seventh. Keselowski was involved in an accident in the closing laps and finished 17th.

The Penske pals stretched their fuel mileage early in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard, but once the race experienced several cautions at the end Logano and Keselowski were forced to race for the win on the strength of their engine and race setup. Logano pushed hard on a late restart and got out of the groove—dropping from second to seventh as a result. Keselowski was in the wrong place at the wrong time. This organization has little to lose by gambling and that has marked their past few attempts.

Joey Logano failed to advance to the final round of qualification and will roll off the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard grid 14th after posting a lap of 183.273 mph.

One would be tempted to say this is not the only factor in a potentially strong run, but after last week’s struggle for Carl Edwards after starting 13th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, fantasy owners have a right to be at least a little nervous. Logano was one of the three slowest drivers who made 10-lap runs and never seemed happy with his Ford.

Joey Logano tried an experimental setup for the New Hampshire 301 and spent the majority of the race in the mid-teens. When chaos erupted ahead of him, he picked his way through the carnage, established track position, and finished third.

It was not pretty, but Logano now has a four-race, top-five streak on this track. The team aborted their experiment halfway through the race and had to pick their way back toward the front. They may not have learned what they wanted to in the New Hampshire 301, but they will be encouraged by the recovery.

Two years ago Joey Logano drew the ire of several competitors for blocking in the final laps of the fall Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway to help his teammate Brad Keselowski to a victory that kept his Chase hopes alive. This week in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway, he spun Kurt Busch off the final turn while clawing for a top-five finish. Logano ended the night fourth. Busch finished 23rd.

That is Logano’s third top-six finish in the past four plate races and should make him a popular pick at Talladega this fall. He might find it difficult to get help in that race from anyone but his teammate, however.
Jul 2 - 11:32 PM

Joey Logano finished third in the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway to score his fourth consecutive top-six finish on road courses. This was his third straight top-five.

Logano is becoming one of the go-to drivers on road courses and when he misses lately it is not by much. Since joining Penske Racing, his worst effort on this course type was a 16th at Sonoma in 2014.
Jun 26 - 6:32 PM

Joey Logano has the sixth-best average finish this season with an 11.6 in the first 15 races. Unfortunately, his place-differential of 3.47 is among the five worst, which means his adjusted total would be closer to 15th.

Logano still deserves a lot of attention for his performance. If the team can figure out how to keep up with adjustments—like they did in last week’s FireKeepers Casino 400 victory at Michigan International Speedway—they will be back in championship form.
Jun 24 - 4:51 PM

It took 15 weeks, but Joey Logano finally got his first win of 2016 at Michigan International Speedway in the FireKeepers Casino 400. He held off Chase Elliott for his 15th career victory.

Most importantly, Logano was predictably strong. Logano won from the pole and led the most laps. The last time he won the pole at Michigan, Logano also won the race in August 2013.
