5-Hour Energy 200 - June 1, 2013 - Dover International Speedway Race Talk
5-Hour Energy 200 at Dover International Speedway (1-mile speedway, Dover, Del.)

No. 22 Hertz Ford Mustang driven by Joey Logano

Saturday, June 1, 2:30pm ET

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • AT THE SPEED OF HERTZ: This weekend, The Hertz Corporation, one of the world’s leading car rental and transportation companies, will make their debut as sponsor of the No. 22 Ford Mustang and driver Joey Logano. Hertz will serve as a primary sponsor for seven races on the No. 22 Ford Mustang as well as the fall race hosted at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Sprint Cup Series.
  • 4, 3, 2…: Since making his season- and Penske Racing-debut in the NASCAR Nationwide Series just a few weeks ago at Talladega Superspeedway, Logano has been able to rack up some good finishes behind the wheel of the No. 22 Hertz Ford Mustang. In fact, Logano has finishes of fourth, third and second in his three races already this year. He has also helped move the No. 22 up in the Owner’s Standings from sixth to third since he took over the ride.
  • THREE-FOR-THREE? Logano comes into the Dover race weekend as the winner of the last two Dover Nationwide Series events. Logano won both races at the high-banked, half-mile track last season, leading a dominating 338 of the 400 laps over the two races. Logano also has a pair of poles at the track, as well as two runner-up finishes.
  • MONSTER MEANING: “The Monster Mile,” the nickname that describes Dover, is close to Logano’s heart. Logano made his much anticipated Nationwide Series debut just a week after his 18th birthday in 2008 at Dover to much fanfare. In that race, Logano started ninth, raced up front all day long and eventually finished sixth.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT DOVER?

“It really it probably one of my favorite tracks. It’s like a grown up Bristol. They don’t drive the same necessarily, but they are very similar in their approach and in the way that you have a lot of speed and g-load through the corners. I’ve just always been really good at the track and taken to it well. I would say it’s one of my favorite tracks that we go to and I’ve been fortunate enough to have some pretty good success there. I just feel like I know what I need in a car to get me around the track.”

STILL SEARCHING FOR THAT FIRST WIN THIS YEAR. DOES IT COME THIS WEEKEND?

“I think we are getting closer and closer. The more I run with the guys and the team and the more I work with (crew chief) Jeremy Bullins, the more of a chemistry we are building. And that’s what it’s going to take to get a win. You need to have that chemistry. We have some fast Fords; we just need to put it all together. If we can do it anywhere, I think this weekend will give us a good shot. I’m looking forward to it for sure.”
