Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway - Race Talk
Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway (1.5-mile oval, Homestead, Florida)

No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion driven by Joey Logano

Sunday, November 17, 3:00 pm ET

Primary Chassis: PRS-865
Last Raced: Dover (finished 3rd)
Backup Chassis: PRS-842
Last Raced: Bristol (finished 5th)

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • ONE MORE RACE: Joey Logano’s first season with Penske Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will come to a close this weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. This season has been Logano’s best in the Sprint Cup Series to date, as the young driver has set or matched career-highs in wins, poles, top fives, top 10s, laps led and points position.
  • DEFENDING POLE WINNER: Logano has earned two poles in 2013 and is the defending winner of the pole award at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Logano’s two poles this season came at Michigan International Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway.
  • TEST & TUNE: A few weeks ago, Logano spent a couple of days testing at Homestead-Miami Speedway. But Logano’s test wasn’t behind the wheel of the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford – instead it was behind the wheel of the Penske Racing Nationwide Series Mustang. Logano believes that test will help him quite a bit for Sunday’s season finale.
  • DOUBLE DUTY, WITH A TWIST: ogano will return to the seat of the No. 22 Hertz Mustang in the Nationwide Series this weekend as he helps the team go for the Series Owner’s Championship. The team sits just four points ahead of the race for the title.
  • RACER’S DREAM GARAGE CALENDAR: The 2014 Racer’s Dream Garage presented by Shell V-Power calendar is now available. The calendar showcases drivers like Logano, Brad Keselowski, Travis Pastrana, Kyle Busch, Clint Bowyer, Greg Biffle, Helio Castroneves and several others along with their personal street vehicles. Several fans’ cars are also featured as part of the Shell Ultimate Enthusiast contest. Fans can get the calendar on the Shell-Pennzoil merchandise hauler, at the Penske Racing gift shop or by ordering it online at http://www.joeyloganofoundation.org or http://www.penskeracing.com.




JOEY LOGANO, NO. 22 SHELL-PENNZOIL FORD
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR FIRST SEASON WITH PENSKE RACING?


“I think you have to look at is as being a successful season. We didn’t accomplish our goal of winning the Championship, but we did a lot of good things together. We were able to win a race, win a couple of poles and even more importantly, make the Chase. The biggest thing about the season though is how the team grew and how we bonded and how we were able to fight back from adversity. Early in the year, we had a couple of times where we were thrown a curve ball and we were always able to battle back from it. We never gave up and that showed. I’m not looking forward to the season ending. I want to keep this going and going.”


TODD GORDON, CREW CHIEF, NO. 22 SHELL-PENNZOIL FORD
TALK ABOUT YOUR FIRST SEASON WORKING WITH JOEY LOGANO?


“Yeah, it has been a great experience for me and for this team. Joey came in here and brought a bit of fresh air to the No. 22 team. Joey doesn’t get a lot of credit as to how thorough and complete he is when it comes to preparation. He’s a student of the sport and he spends a lot of time studying and learning about the cars every weekend. He spends as much time in the garage and in the trailer as any driver I’ve ever met. I think we’ve accomplished a lot of the things we wanted to accomplish, but we’ve got a lot more that we can do together. With a year under our belt, I think we will be able to continue to build and grow together and I’m looking forward to what the future will hold for the No. 22 team.”

RE: Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway - Race Talk
Said it earlier this week, this track has a lot of thr Atlanta feel to it. Tires wear quickly, the top is preferred line however if you want to make passes down low is the way to go. Joey had the aspects and the field covered at Atlanta and I feel this is the same. Based on the interview and P3 starting spot, it could be a great way to end 2013. Go Joey

IMO, nothing "sucked" about this weekend, yeah he started 3rd ended 8th but did it really matter today, looking how the other "Chasers" stacked up. He got a ticket to the show, will be part of the show. Him and Todd and Company I have no doubt will be a team to look out for next year.

I watched your post for years, and I gotta say..you don't seem like much of a supporter most of the time. Today was fine, what was at stake? Nothing, and it could have been alot worse. A top 10 when we are used to top 5's, well..we take what we can get..anything in a top 10 is "Chase worthy" always..enjoy the off season.

Play nice boys and girls, things are not always as they seem on here. I feel most of us are all very faithful supporters of Joey, especially the person who always posts all the cars that Joey drives. gws
