Joey Logano FedEx 400 - Sunday June 2, 2013 - Dover Race Talk

Joey Logano FedEx 400 - Sunday June 2, 2013 - Dover Race Talk
The FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway (1-mile oval, Dover, Del.)

No. 22 Pennzoil Ford Fusion driven by Joey Logano

Sunday June 2, 1:00 pm ET

Primary Chassis: PRS-842
Last Raced: Bristol (finished 17th)
Backup Chassis: PRS-836
Last Raced: Backup at several races (not yet raced)

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • NOT WANTING TO LEAVE CHARLOTTE: Joey Logano might not want to leave the friendly confines of Charlotte Motor Speedway to head to Dover this weekend. Over the last two weeks, Logano had found some serious success on the track. Logano finished second in the All-Star race at Charlotte two weekends ago and then followed that up with a third-place finish in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at CMS and a fifth-place finish in the Coca-Cola 600.
  • THE BOYS ARE BACK: Often before the start of Sprint Cup Series races, the Dropkick Murphys song “The Boys Are Back” is played over the loud speakers. This weekend, that song will be apropos for Logano, who will get his Crew Chief, Car Chief and lead Engineer back this weekend. They come back following a three-week suspension.
  • A LITTLE TESTING: Logano and his No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil team spent a day this week testing their road course program at Virginia International Raceway in an open test session at the 3.27-mile road course. Both Logano and his Penske Racing teammate Brad Keselowski, along with the Penske Racing Nationwide Series teams, took part in the test.
  • CLIMBING BACK IN THE POINTS: Despite a fifth-place finish in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway last weekend, Logano remains 19th in the series’ point standings. However, he did make up significant ground in the points. And though the 23-year-old is 19th in the standings, he sits just 37 points outside of the Chase cutoff and only 30 points out of 12th position.

ARE YOU EXCITED TO GET TODD GORDON BACK THIS WEEKEND?

“I am excited to get Todd back at the track. It’s been tough just talking with him away from the track and seeing him at the shop. But the guys that filled in during the time he and everyone else was out did a great job. I think we really made the best of the situation and I don’t think we really missed a beat and that was obvious the last couple of weeks in Charlotte. But it will be nice having Todd back at the track for sure. I’m ready for things to get back to normal and focus on winning some of these races.”

DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE RIDING A HOT STREAK?
“Well, anytime that you are running good and getting good finishes, it helps pump the team up and helps pump you up as a driver. But I feel like we have been running well all year long, we just don’t have the finishes to show for it. I think we have only had a couple of races where we actually ‘missed it.’ But we will take the last couple of weeks and keep going with it.”

Yep, could have flatlined but this team fought. Great 7th place run. One year anniversary from last win. I think he will be bad fast next week

What a day! Had that tire issue in the beginning. I thought that was the race for him. Was -2 laps down but fought hard to get it back and he did. So proud of him and the 22 team. Expecting great things next week. Pocono baby!! Big Grin I'm thinking Pocono sweep!

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