5-Hour Energy 200 at Dover - Race Talk
5-Hour Energy 200 Benefitting Living Beyond Breast Cancer (1-mile oval, Dover, Del.)

No. 22 Hertz Ford Mustang driven by Joey Logano

Saturday, September 28 at 3:30 pm ET

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • “HERTZ SO GOOD” IN V-LANE: The Hertz Corporation, one of the world’s leading car rental and transportation companies and a first- year sponsor with Penske Racing, will return to the side of the No. 22 Ford Mustang this week at Dover. And that could spell big problems for the competition. Hertz has adorned the side of the No. 22 five previous races this season. And of those five, four times the car has made it to Victory Lane. Joey Logano took the Hertz Mustang to Victory Lane at Dover and Chicago, while Brad Keselowski won with Hertz at both Watkins Glen and Richmond.
  • LOOKING FOR ANOTHER SEASON SWEEP: Logano took the checkers in the spring race at Dover International Speedway, giving him his third-consecutive NASCAR Nationwide Series win at the track. Logano will now be looking for the season sweep at Dover for the second-straight year after winning both races at the track last season. The four-straight wins at one track would be a career-high for Logano, who previously won three-straight races at Kentucky Speedway from 2008-2010.
  • BUILDING POINTS LEAD: Thanks to Ryan Blaney’s first-career Nationwide Series win at Kentucky Speedway last weekend, the No. 22 team was able to build their points lead in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Owner’s Championship to 23 points over the No. 54 team for Joe Gibbs Racing. Should the No. 22 win the Owner’s Championship, it would be the third Owner’s Championship that Logano has been involved in. He won the Owner’s Championship previously with Joe Gibbs Racing in both 2008 and 2012.
  • INTERESTING NUMBERS: A fun numbers game when looking at Logano’s career finishes at Dover – since 2009, Logano has only finished in three different positions. He finished second in 2009 and the first race in 2010. He finished 13th in both races in 2011. And he’s finished first in the last three races.

HOW GREAT WOULD IT BE TO WIN YOUR FOURTH-STRAIGHT NNS RACE AT DOVER?

“That’s the goal for the weekend. Every weekend, we want to go out there and win the race. And I think we have a great shot to do it at Dover. Jeremy (Bullins) and I will have the notes from the spring race to go off of and we are taking a new car. But to think that you can win three-straight and even four-straight races at a track is pretty freaking cool. I really want to go out there and make it happen this weekend. Dover is a track that suits my driving style and it’s one of my favorite places we race, so I’d love to have a fourth Miles the Monster. I want to build a little Miles family.”

HOW IMPORTANT IS THE OWNER’S CHAMPIONSHIP?

“I’ve heard a lot of people trying to downplay it and say it isn’t that important. But there are 100-plus guys back at the Penske Racing shop that feel it’s pretty important. If you can’t go for the driver’s championship, you want that Owner’s Championship. I’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of a couple of them and it’s really important – to sponsors, to the guys that travel and to the guys that build the cars at the shop. So that’s what we are going after.”
