Joey Logano NRA 500 Race Talk - Saturday, April 13, 2013

Joey Logano NRA 500 Race Talk - Saturday, April 13, 2013
The NRA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway (1.5 mile oval, Ft. Worth, Texas)

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

Saturday, April 13, 7:30 pm ET

Primary Chassis: PRS-848
Last Raced: New Chassis
Backup Chassis: PRS-844
Last Raced: Backup chassis from Fontana (not used)

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • CHASE WATCH:Even though the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season is just six races old, it is never too early for teams and drivers to start looking at the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship standings. After six races, Joey Logano finds himself 11th in points despite a string of bad luck and mechanical issues early in the season. Logano is positioned just five points outside of the top 10 and less than 20 points out of eighth place in the point standings.
  • IMPORTANT SHELL WEEKEND: The annual races at Texas Motor Speedway are always among the most important events of the season for Logano’s primary sponsor, Shell-Pennzoil. The company’s US headquarters are located in the state of Texas, 250 miles away in Houston.
  • LOOKING TO JOIN EXCLUSIVE COMPANY: This weekend, when most of the Sprint Cup Series drivers are enjoying a rare Sunday off, Logano will be hoping to fulfill one of his career goals. Logano will make his return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Sunday afternoon at Rockingham Speedway, piloting the No. 19 Ford F-Series for Brad Keselowski Racing. Logano is looking to become the 24th driver to earn at least one win in the top-three NASCAR National Series divisions (Cup, NNS, Trucks).

HOW DO YOU FEEL YOU HAVE BEEN ON INTERMEDIATE TRACKS THIS SEASON?

“So far, I think the intermediate tracks have been our strong point for sure. We were really strong at Vegas and had a car that was capable of finishing in the top five and I had a small mistake on pit road. At California, I think we were one of the two or three best cars all day long and we should have won that race. So I feel like the 1.5-mile and the two-mile tracks have been our strong suit so far this year. That makes me pretty excited for this weekend.”

WHAT ADVANTAGE WILL YOU HAVE WITH THE OPEN TEST DAY ON THURSDAY?

“You can never gather too much information about these new Gen6 cars. With the testing rules that we have now, you can’t just go and test all the time, so having these open days gives us all a shot to put some information-gathering devices on these cars and really learn more about them. It will make us all closer when the weekend comes around for sure.”

Based on Joeys twitter comment, if we can get a top 15 it would be good. Not warm and fuzzy right now, feel the same way I did in beginning of week. Need a "rabbit from the hat" tonight! Go Joey

It is not looking good for either Penske Team tonight. Both teams are in trouble by NASCAR for having rear end housing that were "not in spirit of the rules." Both teams parts were confiscated but they will not have to start in the rear for the race. They keep their positions. I do not know what this means for the teams come Monday-Tuesday when NASCAR looks into the situation. I just hope they don't lose Paul or Todd, or worse, points. Sad

RE: Joey Logano NRA 500 Race Talk - Saturday, April 13, 2013
Some are predicting that Paul and Todd will be suspended 6 races and hit with $100,000 fines. Sad Ouch! I sure hope not. Other teams are looking at the parts and equipment to compare their cars. Media outlets are pointing out the question as to why this was not caught in previous inspections or if they made changes to the cars today. I am hoping for Joey or Brad to win tonight and rub it in NASCAR's face. Tongue I want Joey to win regardless, I am just saying. lol

It definitely does, Jean. I'm just worried Joey is going to lose points. The 48 was going to lose 43 points last year with a C Post problem but appealed it and didn't lose it. I have my fingers crossed. Go Joey! I'm so proud to be a #22 fan.
