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.

Joey Logano has been the fastest driver in the second round of the last two weeks before getting pushed to the outside front row in the third and final round. This week, he held on at Michigan International Speedway and will lead Martin Truex Jr. and the rest of the field to Firekeepers Casino 400 green on Sunday.

This is Logano’s 16th career pole and his second of 2016. He did not fare very well earlier this season and faded to 11th at Martinsville Speedway. He also finished worse than he started in the last two events with a ninth at Charlotte Motor Speedway and fifth at Pocono Raceway after starting on the outside pole. When he scored his previous Michigan pole, he won in August 2013.

Sprint Cup driver Joey Logano (#22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang) tops the speed chart in the Final Practice session for the XFINITY Series Menards 250 at Michigan International Speedway.

He ran a fast lap of 191.826 mph. #11 Blake Koch, #16 Ryan Reed, #20 Erik Jones and #7 Justin Allgaier round out the top-five of the 36 cars out on the track. The #79 Chevrolet Camaro driven by ARCA Racing driver Josh Williams was the slowest in the final practice session.

Joey Logano has been on a bit of a slide in recent weeks, but he rebounded nicely at Pocono Raceway. After starting on the outside pole, he finished fifth in the Axalta 400 driving Penske Racing’s No. 22.

Logano has been qualifying exceptionally well this season with six front row starts, but the team seems to have lost their focus on race trim. With back-to-back top-10s from the outside pole at Charlotte Motor Speedway and now Pocono, it is a good time to head to Michigan, which is a track that has been kind to Penske in the past.

Joey Logano will join teammate Brad Keselowski on the front row for the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 at Pocono. His lap of 181.400 mph was 0.089 seconds slower than the pole sitter.

This will be the fourth time Logano has started on the front row. He won the pole in back-to-back races in 2011/2012 and started second in 2014. His 2012 start ended with a victory. His 2014 outside pole ended in third.

Joey Logano was caught speeding during a green flag pit stop sequence near lap 250 of the 400-lap distance of the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He lost a lap, got back in touch with the leaders by pitting off sequence, and salvaged a ninth-place finish.

Logano keeps scoring top-10s and that makes him a solid fantasy performer, but until he challenges for wins it is difficult to build a roster around the No. 22.

Joey Logano posted the fastest time in the first two rounds of Thursday’s qualification, but slipped to second in the final round that determined the pole. He will line up to the outside of Martin Truex Jr. for Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Logano was stellar in both qualifications last year with an outside pole in this race and a third-place start in the fall. He won the fall race, but slipped to 13th at the end of the Coke 600.

Joey Logano provided a little bit of drama in the opening minutes of the first practice session for the Coca-Cola 600. On his first lap on the track, he lost a spring and was forced back to the garage.

The mishap did not bother Logano. He went out on his next run and set a top-15 time. With 20 minutes remaining, he had fallen to 15th on the fastest speed chart. On his second lap, Logano jumped to third.

Joey Logano has earned the sixth-best, strength-based Fantasy Power Ranking in the first 12 races of the season with a 9.6. His average finish of 13.3 is only ninth-best, however, suggesting he has been stronger than lucky.

Both his Power Ranking and average finish has taken a hit in the past three weeks, however, with consecutive accidents at Talladega SuperSpeedway, Kansas Speedway, and Dover International Speedway. While he has run well at times, it is hard to place-and-hold him on a roster, though. Only two of his 12 results have ended better than they started and he is costing players a lot of place-differential points.

Joey Logano passed Kyle Larson for the lead with two laps remaining in the 2016 Sprint All-star race to win his first edition of this race in six attempts. Occasionally confusing, the last 13 laps of the race were pure competition.

This was a case of experience versus enthusiasm and experience won. Logano had a faster car, but he also showed a lot of patience in the closing laps, which caused Larson to make the mistake that sent the No. 42 into the wall.

Joey Logano has scored his fourth-best career average at Dover International Speedway with a 13.4 in 14 starts. Last year, he beat his average in both races with an 11th in the spring and 10th in the fall.

If Logano can repeat that feat, he will earn at least 11 place-differential points because a modest showing in Friday’s practice—which set the starting lineup for Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive for Autism—has him rolling off 22nd. Logano improved a little on Saturday morning, but was still only 17th fastest.

Sprint Cup driver Joey Logano (#22 Ford Fusion) had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the first practice for the XFINITY Series Ollie’s Bargain Outlet 200 at Dover International Speedway.

His average of 154.098 mph in the #22 Fleetwood/REV Group Ford Mustang was best of the six cars that ran at least 10 consecutive laps on the track for this session. #3 Ty Dillon (153.025 mph), #7 Justin Allgaier (151.856), #62 Brendan Gaughan (151.304), #33 Brandon Jones (149.532) and Ray Black Jr. (145.632) are the rest on this list.

Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano were both involved in the same late-race accident at Talladega SuperSpeedway that ended their day, but it was not their first contact on the track. While trying to bump-draft the No. 20, Logano knocked Kenseth off course and the two argued about the incident outside of the care center.

Rewind to last fall’s Hollywood Casino 400 and Logano’s bump on Kenseth that effectively ended his Chase hopes. That storyline will be front-of-mind this week and could trigger further retaliation between a pair of drivers with bad blood. Logano is undoubtedly still stinging over the Martinsville Speedway wreck that ended his Chase. Neither driver is a safe bet in the upcoming GoBowling.com 400.

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.
