Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013

RE: Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013
As for Joey, i think this further points to Kenseth coming, Joey already knows Matt is taking the 20. I bet Gibbs is trying to convince Joey to run a full season in Nationwide and bring him back in the 4th car in 2014 and Joey is thinking about whether he wants to do that and at the same time staling to see if a full time cup ride with another team pops up.

JGR wants Joey in Sprint, they were deciding to provaly expand the team to a 4th car! And I agree with CJF, Marco Andretti's team will fail for the first couple of months! I even heard that Joey could go to MWR! :/! A lot of things are up in the air!

Go Joey and Brad!! Heart #22 & #2!

RE: Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013
guys, Joey is going nowhere so stop listening to the banter off message boards. Joey is going to be in the 20 with his team if Matt can get the 17. if not remember Matt is a Cup champion so he would be guaranteed for the first 5 races next year regardless of what they do so if it's the 20 with Joey, great, if something else than it is what it is.
Let's just stay calm and know Joey will be in Sprint Cup

Old Man, hearing now DG might move over to Kyle and M&M's going to Joey with Gamestop. M&M's a little upset with Kyle last year when got suspended. This is the hold up. Can you confirm this?

RE: Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013
SPARTA, Ky. -- Amid news of a contract extension for Denny Hamlin and speculation swirling around Matt Kenseth's possible arrival at Joe Gibbs Racing next year, team owner Joe Gibbs said Saturday that his top priority was re-signing Joey Logano.

Logano, 22, who is in a contract year, has five Nationwide Series victories and one Sprint Cup win to his credit this year and has begun to blossom in his pairing with first-year Cup crew chief Jason Ratcliff.

We've got a lot invested in Joey. I think right now he's stepping up, and we want him to be with us.

-- JOE GIBBS

"We're working real hard right now on extending him and his relationship with us," Gibbs said Friday after the drivers' meeting for Saturday night's Quaker State 400. "We've had a great relationship, signed him when he was 15. We've got a lot invested in Joey. I think right now he's stepping up, and we want him to be with us."

Asked whether sponsor Home Depot would continue to be part of the equation, Gibbs said, "I think part of what we've got going on with us right now -- there's a lot going on. So the things I talked about ... Joey, we want to get that done. Everything else is kind of up in the air for us right now."

It's fair to say that sponsor alignments are in a state of flux at JGR. Gibbs said that signing a new deal for Hamlin was a separate issue from extending the deal with Hamlin's sponsor, FedEx.

"It doesn't have anything to do with FedEx -- it's just Denny," Gibbs said, but that doesn't preclude the possibility of FedEx returning to Hamlin's car.

Gibbs was mum on the Kenseth rumors, but he left the door open for a future announcement.

"I don't think I should spend time talking about that right now," Gibbs said. "The timing's not there for us to talk about that. We've got a lot of decisions that need to be made, and we're working through that right now."

Kenseth, the Cup points leader, announced earlier this week that he would not return to Roush Fenway Racing and already had a new deal in place for 2013.

Hamlin is eighth in the series standings with two Cup wins this season. The driver of the No. 11 Toyota confirmed on his Twitter feed at 6:51 p.m. ET that the extension was a done deal.

"Happy to know where my future is," Hamlin wrote. "Excited for tonight and beyond with my team."

Heres to 2013!!! New Relationships & New Beginnings!

RE: Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013
As you can see, the extension for Denny is all but done and will be announced next week. Just like I said yesterday. Smile

Joey will not be in a MWR car next year. Matt Kenseth will not be in a Dodge next year. As mentioned last week, the deal is all but sealed for Matt to be in a JGR HD car - only issue remaining there is the car number. JR all but confirmed it yesterday with his "Dark Side" comment - a reference that he has used for Toyota since the day they came into the Sprint Cup Series.

Joey will probably not be the full time racer for Masterfoods. As mentioned last week, I think he could race with Snickers as the primary for two or three races and maybe M&Ms for one or two races. The rest will be DG and GameStop. Also mentioned that Zest may come with Matt and Best Buy too - these could be associates on Joey's car as well. Monster Energy (talked about it last week) will not be with Joey - he will keep the association with Coke.

Granted, anything can happen with the Masterfoods situation, but the Mars family finally has a car that visits victory lane on a regular basis and that is what they prefer too see. Unless Kyle goes off like Kurt a few times, that sponsorship will not change.

One other thing. There could be one other sponsor who could be with Joey as a primary for a few races and the remainder as an associate. I don't know who it is, but word has come this way that something is in the works.

That's all I know for now. Just keep reminding yourselves that Joey is in good hands and JGR is not going to let him get away. The future for Mr. Logano at JGR is looking great.

RE: Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013
Thanks Old Man. That is what I am hearing too. DG run with Kyle some when those Masterfoods run with Joey. He will be in Cup. I would love an announcement in Daytona next week as I am a season ticket holder at Loudon and want to buy some new gear at his hauler. I know it wont be HD I am purchasing!

Old Man Fan,
If Matty can't get the 17 which it looks that way, what number is being tossed around? I know Joey raced the 10 coming up through but SHR has that. Thank you

RE: Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013
The issue isn't whether or not JGR wants to keep Joey. They have finally decided they want him back. The issue has been all along whether Joey wants to stay with JGR or see who else wants him. Now I've said since Jan. that he was leaving and was going to Penske and the 22. Personally there is part of me that hopes he leaves. 4 teams rarely work, and you know Kenseth is going to get the better stuff, and Joey will get the left overs.

With that said, Joey will probably wind up staying with Gibbs. I think it will be a mistake. But what number will they use? Maybe try and get Penske to release the 12, unless Hornish is going to get it. Maybe the 23? Most all the low numbers are taken.

Looking for the follow Logano cars: '09 white gold, '09 New Hampshire raced win white gold, '11 copper e-point

RE: Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013
The 22 is not the answer for Joey. Joey needs stability to his team and to go to another organization with an inexperienced CC sets Joey back again. Joey will keep his whole team that he has built upon this year and he getting a Champion like Matt will only help. 4 teams can work with the right philosophy. HMS is doing great with it, when Roush had sponsorship it worked great. There have been instances it hasn't but that is more for wrong combinations versus 4 car team. Just my .02
