Joey Logano 2013 Darlington Race Talk

Wink Joey Logano 2013 Darlington Race Talk
The Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway (1.366-mile oval, Darlington, SC)

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

Saturday, May 11, 6:45 pm ET

Primary Chassis: PRS-839
Last Raced: Phoenix (finished 26th)
Backup Chassis: PRS-844
Last Raced: Backup at several races (not yet raced)

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • MOTHER NATURE NOT A FAN: Joey Logano and Mother Nature might not be seeing eye-to-eye these days. Last weekend at Talladega Superspeedway, Logano had raced his way up to third when rains came and set off a three-hour rain delay. However, the weather cleared up and the race resumed. And when it did, Logano continued to run up front before eventually succumbing to an engine issue that was caused by a small hole in the radiator that allowed all the water to escape.
  • ROLLER COASTER: Logano has truly had a roller coaster season so far in 2013. After finding himself as positioned as high as eighth in the point standings, Logano’s last six races have been a mixture of up and down results. Logano dominated at Auto Club Speedway before eventually finishing third. He followed that up with a 23rd-place finish at Martinsville. A top-five run at Texas was followed by an early crash at Kansas. And a third-place effort at Richmond was followed by last week’s 35th at Talladega.
  • LADY IN BLACK COASTER AS WELL: TIt’s not just the 2013 season, but Logano’s career at Darlington that can also be described as a roller-coaster ride. Logano has two top-10 finishes at Darlington (a ninth and a 10th) along with two finishes outside of the top 25. His career-best qualifying effort at the legendary track is fifth, which came in his rookie season.
  • MOTHER’S DAY: Logano’s mother, Deb, will be at the track this weekend to help celebrate Mother’s Day. Deb has been an integral part of Logano’s career and still runs his Fan Club.


HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THE UP-AND-DOWN SEASON YOU’VE HAD SO FAR?

“It’s frustrating for sure, because it’s not really a true representation of how well this Shell-Pennzoil team has run. I’d say since California, we’ve have a great car each and every week with maybe the exception of Martinsville, where we just missed it. We have had some great top-five runs and then we have had some disappointing runs with things that were out of our control. At Kansas, we were working on the car and got swept up in an accident. And at Talladega, I feel like we had a car that could easily win and we had an issue after the rain delay. It’s frustrating, but we all know that we are running well and working hard. We are close to getting that first win and when that happens, I think we will have a shot to win several of these races.”

DO YOU FEEL PRESSURE, BEING 18TH IN POINTS, YET?

“No. There are still a bunch of races left before the Chase. I really think we can start being a regular top-five and top-10 car and if we were able to win a couple of races, we would have a good shot. So I’m not worried about it. I’m just going to keep doing my job.”

RE: Joey Logano 2013 Darlington Race Talk
This season was supposed to be different, i know things have happened but we have to get better NOW. Its his 5th season and he is on a championship calibre team. We all said, a fresh start, not being in the shadow of Tony or playing behind Kyle and Denny were the answers. Now im wondering what excuses we all will have to come up with for next year if things fail again.

Oh! i got one already!! Joey is allergic to Orange Paint! that is why he did so much better in Nationwide at gibbs being in a mostly dark coloured car and why his best finish in cup at Penseke was in the AAA car which is blue and red. Think about it...allergic to Orange Paint.... lol

RE: Joey Logano 2013 Darlington Race Talk
I know ,,, it is disheartening,,,what is he now 17th or so? Please lets have things turn around a little. I can't help wondering if Joey feels bad.... since already Kenseth is doing fantastic in the #20....and then on top of that, damned Denny comes in #2 on his first race after the back injury, supposedly, Joey's fault.....geez,,,,my heart aches for Joey,,,,,again,,,,he needs a lot of our support.....gws

You cant compare joey and matt. Matt is an amazing driving driver. Him doing so well is no suprise. Toyoyta are bes right now. As for Denny, Darlington is one of his best tracks so no surprise with finish.
Joey will win and soon. I expect MIS when Gordon is back
