Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013

RE: Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013
Joey Logano mulling 2 full-time Cup offers, 1 from Joe Gibbs - ESPN

CONCORD, N.C. -- Joey Logano is mulling offers for two full-time Sprint Cup rides next year, including one to remain at Joe Gibbs Racing, and expects to make a decision soon.

"I've got a couple of offers," the 22-year-old driver said on Wednesday at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where he was promoting fall events. "I'm just trying to decipher what's the best for me. What's going to give me the most trophies and win the most races out of?

Logano is in the final year of his contract in the No. 20 Toyota at Gibbs Racing. Multiple sources told ESPN.com that Matt Kenseth will replace Logano with the 20 team in 2013, although not necessarily with the No. 20 on the car. Sources said an announcement can't be made until sometime after mid-to-late August because of a stipulation in Kenseth's contract at Roush Fenway Racing.

One of Logano's offers is to remain with Gibbs. JGR president J.D. Gibbs told ESPN.com last month at Indianapolis Motor Speedway that there have been talks about a fourth Cup team with the organization and giving Logano either a full-time Cup ride or a part-time Cup ride and full-time Nationwide team.

"We want him to retire at JGR," Gibbs said. "We're trying to figure out how to make all of that work." Gibbs said the preference is to keep Logano full-time in Cup.

Logano would not discuss the name of the other organization that has made an offer. The No. 22 at Penske Racing has been mentioned as a possibility since AJ Allmendinger was released following his suspension for failing a drug test.

Penske Racing also might be considering adding a third team next year as it moves to Ford. Sam Hornish Jr. has been named Allmendinger's replacement for the foreseeable future.

"There's only so many good teams out there," Logano said when asked directly about Penske Racing. He said he is not considering a part-time Cup ride.

"I wouldn't put that as an option right now," he said. "I feel like I'm capable of winning Cup races. I feel like I'm there. Taking a step back would not be best for my career. At the same time, you've got to make sure it's the best opportunity. It's not worth jumping down a notch to race more races if you're not going to be competitive."

The Cup offer at Gibbs is dependent on finding sponsorship.

"They're working through a lot of that stuff," Logano said. "That's why the next few days will be interesting on how a lot of things go."

Logano would not say if he preferred to stay at Gibbs, where he has been driving since he started his NASCAR career as a teenager in 2008.

"It's a very, very hard decision," Logano said. "At the same time we've been able to focus in on our car and still have fast Home Depot cars. We haven't lost focus on going out there and making the Chase this year.

"When you do that, that makes life a lot easier and your decisions a lot easier."

Logano is 17th in points, but he remains in contention for one of two wild-card spots in the Chase because of a June victory at Pocono. Kasey Kahne currently has the first wild-card spot with two victories.

Jeff Gordon, who won Sunday's race at Pocono, has the second spot with a win and the tiebreaker over Ryan Newman for 13th in points.

"These next few races leading up to the Chase are important for a lot of cars," Logano said. "I think two or three wins is what you're going to need to make it."

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

Sources say Tom Logano, Joey's father and manager, has met with Penske team representatives to try to hammer out a deal. The ball, apparently, is in Penske's court.

RE: Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013
Should be interesting. If in fact Joey goes to PRS, expect if he misses the chase to move over there for the final 10 races and get started for 2013. I just hate he will have another new CC next year if this proves to be the decision

Regardless of where he goes, he would still need to finish his 2012 obligations with Joe Gibbs Racing. He has races with Home Depot Car, GameStop, Dollar General that he needs to completed. I just don't see him getting an early release at JGR.

You may be correct but this has happened before so I wouldn't be surprised.

RE: Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013
I hear ya Mama! Regardless if he stays a JGR the old Orange is going to be retired because Matt has that sponsorship. I dropped some coin in July on DG stuff and that's looking like a waste but unfortunately that is NASCAR for you. There aren't many drivers who have a consistent sponsor. If he goes to PRS all new Shell and AAA stuff it looks like!
I am assuming we will hear something within the next 10 to 14 days

While you may not be able to talk Old Man Fan, my source in the garage area is predicting that Joey will likely sign with the 22 car.

Maybe that blurred car is a car that had Trans-lux mentions on it?

RE: Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013
Gibbs says Logano's future still up in the air: #20-Joey Logano, 22, has been with JGR since he was 16. The organization has a lot invested in him and Logano has a lot invested in the organization. There are loyalty issues on both sides. But without a guarantee of sponsorship to drive a full season in 2013 and beyond, with primary sponsor Home Depot likely going to Matt Kenseth next year, the opportunity to latch on with Shell Pennzoil or another sponsor at Penske would be too good to pass up. Here's what we know: Logano has two offers on the table, including one from Gibbs. The JGR offer depends on sponsorship, and team owner Joe Gibbs said on ESPN on Wednesday that "everything is up in the air'' with Logano. Without directly addressing Kenseth, Gibbs said he hoped to be able to announce something in two weeks, which coincidentally would have the Cup series in Atlanta, the headquarters for Home Depot. Logano said last week he should have clarity in a few days to two weeks, with the two weeks now in the equation since a few days have passed. He also was noncommittal on whether he preferred to stay at JGR.(ESPN)(8-16-2012)

RE: Joe Gibbs Plans To Resign Joey For 2013
This to me isn't even a question mark. One company cannot give you cup full time. The other can. You have a great sponsor. Both organizations have top owners. Brad and you get along real well. Just get papers signed and start fresh. I love Joeys loyalty but sponsors, top sponsors that is are hard to come by.
