Joey Logano Kobalt Tools 400 Race Talk - Sunday, March 10, 2013
The Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (1.5-mile oval, Las Vegas, Nev.)

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

Sunday, March 10, 3:00 pm ET

Primary Chassis: PRS-840
Brand new chassis for 2013
Backup Chassis: PRS-835
Brand new chassis for 2013

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • 8 LAPS FROM BIG START:While the race finishes to Joey Logano’s season reflect 19th and 26th on paper, it is not indicative of the way he has performed in the first two races of his Penske Racing career. Logano is really just eight laps short of starting the year with two top-10 results. In Daytona, Logano was running sixth when he lost his drafting partners with just three laps to go, causing him to fall back to an eventual 19th place finish. In Phoenix, Logano was running 10th when he ran into fuel pickup problems with just five laps remaining, which forced him to pit under green and relegated him to a 26th-place result.
  • MAGIC 150: When the green flag flies in Vegas, Logano will reach yet another milestone in his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series career. On Sunday, he will make his 150th Sprint Cup Series start. His first start came in September of 2008 at New Hampshire.
  • CUP O’ JOEY: ESPN debuted what will be a new segment on their NASCAR Now Sunday morning programs last weekend. “Cup O’ Joey” will follow Logano around on and off the track and give viewers an inside look at his personality as it relates to on-track competition and off-track fun. The segment will be a regular feature on the Sunday morning shows.


HOW DO YOU OVERCOME YOUR TOUGH START?

“You just have to look at it like there is nothing you can do about what has already happened. The best thing you can do is learn from what happened and make sure it doesn’t happen again. We need to figure out what happened with the fuel pickup problems in Phoenix and make sure it doesn’t happen again. And I learned things about what to do and not to do at the end of the race at places like Daytona. We are only two races into the season though. There is plenty of time to keep moving forward.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR’S TEAMS PERFORMANCE SO FAR?

“We haven’t gotten the finishes we want, but that doesn’t really mean we haven’t been a factor. We were running in the top 10 both races with less than five to go. To be able to do that right out of the box is impressive. But we need to finish those types of runs. You can’t blame luck. You make your own luck. So we just need to finish things. The speed is there. The chemistry is there. Now, we just need to put it together. This team can and will win races this year.”

Im looking forward to this weekend. Joey has been fast in both races so far. A bit of bad luck doesn't make a season. They have been giving Joey decent cars and after coming back last weekend to almost get a top 10 shows they're working well together. I love the way he's being aggressive and racey not laying back like before. I think he's got a new attitude and confidence and that's going to show, it already is. He's going for the risky moves, making passes, driving up from the back in few laps. I think were in for a good season and beyond with Penske Racing.

These are the type of tracks Joey has struggled on. Seems like there isn't a ton of one lap speed in either him or the 2 so hoping they working on consistent. Wish he was in the Nationwide race today.

I am so happy that Joey bounced back after an early mistake but Matt Kenseth winning in only his third race with JGR, leaves me with a sore stomach. Ugh! I was the biggest Kasey Kahne fan those last 26 laps. But I am very proud of Joey and I know he will be in VL very soon. Go #22! Smile

Yes, nice comeback,,,never mind your sour stomach,,,,wonder how Joey's stomach is doing....I feel much sympathy for him tonight. Gibbs must be smiling from ear to ear and Matt is having a happy birthday. OK,,now on to bigger and better things. At least Brad did pretty good, he fought hard.....gws

Joey had a fast car today, just couldn't catch a break on the yellow's. Finally got the break with around 40 to go and from there he raced his way forward to finish 12th. There were times there that he was running lap times faster than the leader. Oh... and not to mention that he was the 3rd highest finishing Ford driver! It's only a matter of time until we see the 22 car in victory lane this year.

This should be a good day in his playbook. Had a speeding penalty and -2 laps down. He got the Lucky Dog and drove the wheel off that Fusion, I'm very happy he fnished 12th. I'm just sad that Matt Kenseth won in that 20 car. It's a bummer actually :/ because the 20 wasn't a championship contender for a long time. Joey tried to make it happen, but the luck never fell for him. I'm very pumped for Bristol. I think times are chaning in that 22 camp. Let's go Joey! Big Grin

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

“The guys did a good job though giving me what I needed – a really good race car today. I screwed up and sped down pit road on the first stop. I went down a lap and tried the wave around but never caught our break. I felt like we had a top-five car but I just made a mistake. Too many mistakes on both sides right now. The car was great but I made a dumb mistake. I never really had an opportunity to recover (like) we wanted to.” – Joey Logano on his pit road penalty.

“It’s frustrating because we’ve had three good cars and just haven’t gotten the breaks. To get the finishes we need. I felt like today, we had a car that could run with the front guys. We were running lap times faster than the leaders. It’s tough when the breaks don’t go your way, but it happens. We have had three races and three really fast cars. We’ll put it all together and we will win some races.” – Logano on the start to his season.
