Joey Logano Pure Michigan 400 - Sunday August 18th - Race Talk
Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway (two-mile oval, Brooklyn, MI)

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

Sunday August 18, 1:00 pm ET

Primary Chassis: PRS-857
Last Raced: Michigan (finished 9th)
Backup Chassis: PRS-839
Last Raced: Backup at several races (not raced)

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • FOUR RACES, 27 POINTS: With just four races remaining before the start of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase for the Championship, Joey Logano and the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil team are trying to claw their way back into the top-10 position needed to qualify for NASCAR’s “playoffs.” Logano sits 16th in the points, just 27 outside of the top 10. In June, Logano started sixth and finished ninth after leading 21 laps at the first Michigan race.
  • TOP-10 STREAK REMAINS: Logano has been a picture of streaks this season. Following a streak of top-10 finishes earlier in the year, Logano has rolled off three more top 10s in his last three races. His 11 top 10s this season are tied for the fifth most of all drivers in 2013.
  • RACER’S DREAM GARAGE CALENDAR: Last weekend, Logano announced a new project to help raise money for his Joey Logano Foundation. The 2014 Racer’s Dream Garage presented by Shell V-Power calendar will show off drivers like Logano, Brad Keselowski, Travis Pastrana, Kyle Busch, Greg Biffle and Team Penske’s Helio Castroneves along with their personal street vehicles. Fans can also win a chance to have their car featured in the calendar through the Shell Ultimate Enthusiast contest. More details on the calendar are available at www.joeyloganofoundation.org.
  • TRUCKIN’: Logano will get back behind the well of the No. 19 Draw-Tite Ford at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday for Brad Keselowski Racing. In Logano's previous two starts this season for BKR, he's finished second at Rockingham Speedway and 24th at Kansas Speedway, after battling a mechanical failure that took him out of contention early in the race.
  • MEET LOGANO: Logano will make an appearance at the Meijer Superstore in Jackson, Mich., (3333 E. Michigan Avenue) on Friday night beginning at 7:00 pm ET. All of Logano’s public appearances are listed at JoeyLogano.com


DO YOU FEEL ANY EXTRA PRESSURE WITH JUST FOUR RACES LEFT BEFORE THE CHASE

“You always feel a little pressure. The time to try and make something happen is getting smaller and smaller. But we are not going to go out there and do something totally different than we have been doing up to this point. We’ve been strong all year long. We’re running up front. We just need to put a good finish on some of these strong runs. I think we have a couple of good opportunities to win a race or two in the next four races. There are a couple of tracks that I feel I’m really good at, including Michigan. So we will just go out there and do our thing.”

YOU HAVE 11 TOP-10 FINISHES IN 2013. DO YOU CONSIDER THE SEASON A SUCCESS SO FAR?

“We are still really focused on making the Chase at this point. We aren’t looking at anything as if we aren’t going to make it. But we have been running really well. We’ve been in the top 10 a lot this year. I just want to get a few more top fives and then focus on the wins. But we’ve had a lot of missed opportunities this year. If you look at some of the guys ahead of us in points, I think we’ve run better as a whole all year long than a lot of them. We’ve just had some bad luck and some mistakes. But there is still time and that’s what we are focused on.”

I agree 100%. What got us behind was the bad finishes were really bad. The 25 point penalty didnt help. He has to win minimum of 1 to have a chance. 2 to make it for sure. These next 2 weeks are his chances

Great starting spot and got us in shootout. Now need the win. 48 wrecked and starts from rear which is solid. Joey said Friday he had great car in race trim as well. Speeds didnt show it today but you never know what they were doing. I feel confident
