Joey Logano Quaker State 400 Race - Sunday June 30 - Race Talk
The Quaker State 400 presented by Advance Auto Parts at Kentucky Speedway (1.5-mile oval, Sparta, Kentucky)

No. 22 Pennzoil Ford Fusion driven by Joey Logano

Saturday June 29, 7:30 pm ET

Primary Chassis: PRS-858
Last Raced: New chassis
Backup Chassis: PRS-844
Last Raced: Backup at several races (not yet raced)

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • THE KENTUCKY KING: Before the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series ever visited Kentucky Speedway, Logano was long considered the “Kentucky King” in Nationwide Series competition at the track. Logano won three straight Nationwide Series races at Kentucky between 2008 and 2010, with each of those wins coming from the pole. His win in 2008 was his first Nationwide Series triumph and made Logano the youngest winner in NNS history.
  • SOLID FINISHES CONTINUE: After leading 10 laps last weekend in Sonoma, Logano was able to log an 11th-place finish on the 1.99-mile road course. While the result broke Logano’s streak of five straight top-10 finishes (including the All-Star race), it kept his streak of solid race performances alive. Logano has finished 11th or better in eight of the last 12 races this season.
  • TESTING, TESTING, TESTING: Logano and his No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil team, along with his Penske Racing teammate Brad Keselowski and the No. 2 Miller Lite team, are testing Tuesday and Wednesday this week at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The test is being run in conjunction with the Roush-Fenway Racing teams as the Ford programs work together to maximize the time testing.
  • MEET LOGANO: Logano will sign autographs at his merchandise trailer on Saturday afternoon at 4:00 pm ET. Fans can check at the trailer for ticket distribution times.

WILL YOUR PAST KENTUCKY SUCCESS TRANSLATE OVER TO THE CUP SERIES?

“I always loved Kentucky in the Nationwide Series. We always ran well there and the place is pretty special to me because I was able to get my first NNS win there. But once we started going there in the Cup Series, it seemed like that success didn’t translate over. We just struggled with our cars there the last two years and you need a really good handling car to get around the place because it’s rough. So I think we will have a better handle on it this year and I’m looking forward to getting back there.”

DO YOU THINK ABOUT WHERE YOU COULD BE IN THE POINTS WITHOUT THE BAD LUCK FROM EARLIER THIS YEAR?

“No. What’s done it done. There is nothing you can do about the issues we had earlier this year. Sure, you could say we would be sixth or seventh (in the points) without those, but a lot of guys can say that about a few races. We just need to keep moving forward from where we are and keep learning together. I think we are getting closer and closer and that first win with the 22 team could come at about anytime.”

Starting 11th. Track position will be king tonight. Hate starting on bottom as you cant pass there without slide job. He wasnt fast in practice but the races he wasnt fast in single lap, he was good long runs so hoping thst the case. Need to beat the 18, 2, 48and 99 tonight.

One thing I will say though is that you can't base results off the practice session considering the race will be run during the night where as the practice session was during the day.

Great finish and great fight at the end to make up a few spots! It's amazing how good he's running this year. Top 10 in points is HUGE, and that's with a 25 point penalty out of his control! These are the results that we've been expecting for a few years now and it's great to see! There's no doubt in my mind that Joey will keep it up and probably win a race or two soon!
