Joey Logano GoBowling 400 - Sunday August 4th - Race Talk
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series GoBowling 400 at Pocono Raceway (2.5-mile oval – Long Pond, Pennsylvania)

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

Sunday August 4, 1:00 pm ET

Primary Chassis: PRS-848
Last Raced: Indianapolis (finished 8th)
Backup Chassis: PRS-839
Last Raced: Backup at several tracks

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • 50th TOP-10 RUN: With last weekend’s eighth-place finish at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Joey Logano recorded his 50th career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series top-10 finish. It gave Logano nine top-10 finishes after just 20 races in 2013, which puts him on track to surpass his career best mark of 16 top 10s in 2010. His nine top-10 runs this year already tops the total top-10s he had in the 2009 and 2011 seasons.
  • SIX RACES, 35 POINTS: The No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil team is working hard to earn the number of points it needs to qualify for the Chase for the Sprint Cup at the end of the year. With a half dozen races remaining before the Chase starts, Logano and the team need to make up about six points over the next six races in order to have a shot to make the Chase.
  • QUALIFYING UP FRONT: Two of Logano’s five career Sprint Cup Series pole positions have come at Pocono Raceway. He earned the pole in the second race at the track in 2011 and again in the first race at the track last season, where he also set a track qualifying record.
  • STATS TELL THE TALE OF A SOLID YEAR: Despite being ranked 18th in the point standings, Logano’s top-five and top-10 finishes tell the story of how strong the No. 22 has run in 2013. Logano’s five top-five finishes are more than eight drivers currently ranked ahead of him in points. And his nine top-10 finishes are also more than eight competitors that are in front of him in the standings.


YOU LED LAPS AND FINISHED IN THE TOP 10 AT INDY. CAN YOU KEEP THAT MOMENTUM GOING?

“For sure we can keep everything going. We have run really well all year long. If you look at our races, there are only three or four where we can say that we missed it. And the two weeks before Indy, we had really fast cars and just fell victim to tire problems each week that really put us in a hole. We are contending and we are leading laps and we are running up front each week. If we continue to do that, we will make up the points and maybe even get a win or two before the Chase starts.”

HOW CLOSE ARE YOU TO GETTING THAT WIN?

“I think we are right there. We just need to have a week where everything falls into place. I think if we can start the race off a little better and have a solid day in the pits, we can do it at any of the remaining tracks on the schedule. We always seem to be a little off at the beginning of these races and then we make the car better as the race goes on. If we can start off as a top 10 and then make it better and into a race-winning car, I know we can go out there and win. And that’s our one goal over these final six races before the Chase starts - win a few races.”

Agree pit stops were an issue last week. Need to be better there. Need to qualify up front. Same cars last week will be there this week.

Larry Mac picked Joey today. I think he is going to be fast. He did race runs on friday and I think that will prove beneficial for sure. I am very confident today. Also love starting on outside. And it makes sense, 29 Ford, with Blaney owned by BK wins yesterday. BK wins last night. Naturally 22 wins today! I feel very good. Go Joey
