Joey Logano 2013 Charlotte Race Talk
History 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway (1.5-mile speedway, Concord, North Carolina)

The No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang driven by Joey Logano

Saturday, May 25, 2:30pm ET

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • 22 TEAM AND LOGANO DEFENDING WINNER: Based upon the last two NASCAR Nationwide Series races at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the No. 22 Discount Tire team has a pretty good shot at taking the checkered flag in this weekend’s History 300. Logano’s Penske Racing teammate, Brad Keselowski, is the defending winner of the History 300. Logano, who will drive the No. 22 this weekend, won the last Nationwide Series event at Charlotte Motor Speedway, coming in October.
  • MOVING ON UP: Since taking over the wheel of the No. 22 Discount Tire car at Talladega Superspeedway, Logano has moved the team up three spots in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Owner’s point standings. Following the Richmond event, the team was sixth in the Owner’s Standings. On the strength of Logano’s second-place finish in Talladega and fourth-place finish in Darlington, the team now sits third in Owner’s points.
  • CHARLOTTE A FAVORITE? One of the questions Logano is asked the most at various Q&A sessions always is “what’s your favorite track.” And while his standard answer is “the next one” Logano really loves Charlotte. In nine-career NNS races at Charlotte, Logano has one win, four top-fives and five top-10s. He also has a pole award, which came in the History 300 last year.


WHAT MAKES YOU GOOD AT CHARLOTTE?

“I really don’t know what I like about the track so much, but it has always suited my driving style. It’s just a fun track to drive. You can work the top, you can work the bottom and both lanes can be really fast depending on how your car is set up. I was fortunate enough to get to win the last Nationwide race here last year and I learned a lot of things that day. So I’m excited to go back with the 22 team and see how it’s different and see how fast we can make this Discount Tire Ford Mustang. We’ve got two races under our belt together, so I’m thinking this could be our breakout weekend together.”

HOW TOUGH IS THE COMPETITION THIS YEAR IN THE NATIONWIDE SERIES?

“The last few years, the competition has really ramped up. You have a lot of good Cup Series drivers that come over and run. Kyle (Busch) is always fast. (Kevin) Harvick and Kasey (Kahne) are always fast. But you have a lot of really good, really fast regulars now that can win races every weekend. Sam (Hornish Jr.) has really been good this year and he and Greg Erwin can win a race on any weekend. So the competition is tough and makes winning these Nationwide Series races even harder.”
