Joey Logano STP Gas Booster 500 Race Talk - Sunday, April 7, 2013
The STP Gas Booster 500 at Martinsville Speedway (0.526-mile oval, Martinsville, Virginia)

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

Sunday, April 7, 1:00 pm ET

Primary Chassis: PRS-835
Last Raced: Backup chassis from Las Vegas (not used)
Backup Chassis: PRS-836
Last Raced: Backup chassis from Phoenix (not used)

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • ALL ABOUT POINTS:After five races this season, Joey Logano finds himself positioned ninth in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series point standings following his third-place finish at Auto Club Speedway two weeks ago. The ninth-place position is the highest Logano has ever found himself after the first five races to start a season. In his rookie year of 2009, Logano was 34th in points after five races. In 2010, he was 17th, 2011 he was 29th and last season he was 13th after the first five races.
  • STATS TELL THE STORY: Despite a bit of late-race bad luck so far this year, the stats actually tell the story of how good Logano has been to start the 2013 season. He actually ranks in the top-10 in almost all the NASCAR Loop Data statistical ranks, including ninth in overall driver rating. He’s also top 10 in Average Running Position (sixth), Fastest Laps Run (fifth), Quality Passes (fourth) and Fastest in Traffic (sixth).
  • CREW CHIEF AND GOLF CHAMPION: Logano, his Penske Racing IndyCar teammate Helio Castroneves and Logano’s crew chief, Todd Gordon, all played in the Shell Houston Open Pro-Am last week. Both Castroneves’ team and Gordon’s team won as there was a morning session and afternoon session winner.

HAVE YOU PUT THE AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY RACE BEHIND YOU?

“You have to always look forward in this sport. If you linger on things, you will only go so far. So I’ve been focusing on Martinsville from the time we left California. It was good that we had an off weekend so everyone got a little rest before the upcoming stretch of races, but with the way we have been running, I want to keep the momentum going. So I’m ready to get back at it and move on. I know our team is ready to keep racing as well.”

WHAT ARE YOUR FEELINGS ON HOW YOUR TEAM IS RUNNING?

“Our speed has been there every single week. You can go back and look at each race thus far this year and pinpoint one thing that happened that kept us from getting the finish we should have from fuel pickup issues to my speeding down pit road to getting wrecked at Bristol. We have been fast every weekend and we’ve been there. So we just need to put it all together now. Once we do, I feel we can win multiple races this year and that makes me really excited.”

This is NASCAR trying to hype up something that isn't real. Joey ran out of gas and was trying to get out of Jimmie's way and hit the curb. NASCAR is just trying to get better ratings for the race. Chad and Todd have already talked and everything is fine. Jimmie's car is still fast. They taped the nose back up and he went back out to practice and got 2nd fastest. Didn't hurt it a bit.

Hahahaha well me too, silly. I'm going to be there tomorrow. In turns 1 and 2. So I'm excited Joey chose pit stall 2. I will see him pit every time and start 4th. I'm hoping the 22 will finish one spot higher then last Spring. Wink Go Joey! Btw I was referencing Jimmie's do to media hype. They acted like his car was totalled but it was perfectly fine. Tongue Tabb and Jeremy both said Joey's car will be good as new tomorrow.

Well folks, we came out not talking about Joey. He can go back to racing next week and not having to talk about feud. Nit sure what happened on that pit stop but on to Texas. This was the first week I can say he didnt have that great of a car. But keep the faith!

Joey's car was decent but had multiple issues. He started off tight but his car was still fast but then a caution came out and they pitted. On the restart Joey got stuck on the outside and that was brutul today. But then the line checked up and Joey's hood got pushed up but no other problems, yet. Then his oil pressure gauge broke. Then when trying get by Kurt Busch, Kurt turned down on Joey's nose but Kurt got mad at Joey and on the next restart wouldnt cut him a break so Joey had to try the outside and then he got stuck up there. From there his battery died so he switched to the second and had bad voltage which resulted in him going a lap down. He was fighting for the lucky dog when Kurt's brakes failed and the car caught on fire. They red flagged the race and Joey had to be pushed to start by a wrecker. They didn't want to risk going another lap down to change the battery so they didn't. Joey was finally the lucky dog on the last restart but there was never a caution after that. So he had a rough day but he is at least still in the top 12. He is 11th in points.

It was just a bad day. He fought hard, just caught up in a pile-up and had some in-car issues. He will do better at Texas. Victory Lane is calling his name! He is due for a win! Big Grin

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

RE: Joey Logano STP Gas Booster 500 Race Talk - Sunday, April 7, 2013
“I’ll be glad to get out of Martinsville and head to Texas. We just didn’t have anything go right today for our Shell-Pennzoil Ford. I felt this morning that we had a top-10 car and once we were able to get the car dialed in about halfway through the race, I felt like we were back to where we should be. If we were just able to avoid the problems we ran into during the race, I think we could have come out of here with a top 10 for sure. Now, I’m just ready to get out of here and head to Texas.” – Joey Logano on Sunday’s result

“I’m not sure what happened to the battery. We are going to go back and try to figure it out. We just lost power and had to switch to both batteries and turn off a bunch of switches to keep the voltage at a manageable level. That hurt us in the long run. I just hope we can get past these mechanical issues and get back to racing up front.” – Joey Logano on the battery issues on the No. 22 car
