Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway - Race Talk
Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (1.058-mile oval, Loudon, N.H.)


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

Sunday, September 22, 2:00 pm ET

Primary Chassis: PRS-848
Last Raced: Fall Pocono (finished seventh)
Backup Chassis: PRS-844
Last Raced: Backup at several races (not raced)

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • LET’S DO IT AGAIN: With a 37th-place finish at Chicagoland Speedway last weekend due to an engine failure, Joey Logano is now 12th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series point standings and the Chase for the Sprint Cup rankings. He sits 52 points behind the leader and 21 points out of the top 10. This isn’t the first time this season that Logano has had to try and climb back up in the point standings. Following the NHMS event in July, Logano found himself 18th in the point standings, 36 points out of the top 10. In the six following races, Logano raced his way back to eighth place in the standings. It happened earlier in the year as well. Following the Darlington event in May, Logano was 19th in the point standings and 56 points out of the top 10. In six races, he was able to make up those points and work his way back inside the top 10.
  • BACK WHERE IT STARTED: Logano made history back in 2009 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway when the then 19-year, one-month and four-day-old driver became the youngest ever winner in Sprint Cup Series history. The victory, which came in his Rookie of the Year campaign, allowed Logano to add to an already impressive resume. This included becoming the youngest NASCAR Nationwide Series winner the previous season when he won at Kentucky Speedway just three weeks after his 18th birthday. Logano is also the youngest pole winner in the history of the Sprint Cup Series.
  • 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 http://www.joeyloganofoundation.org.

YOU ONLY MADE THREE LAPS IN THE FIRST RACE AT NHMS. ARE YOU LOOKING TO REBOUND?

“We are looking to rebound at New Hampshire and after our first Chase race. I thought we had a pretty good car there in July, but we never got a chance to show it as we had a tire issue on the third lap and hit the wall. We never got a chance to show what we could do. So we are going to try and scratch that from our memory banks and just go out there and do what we need to do. We don’t have a lot of notes to go off of. We will rely on our teammate a little bit there.”


HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR TEAM’S SPIRITS UP AFTER THE FIRST CHASE RACE RESULT?

“There is nothing you can do about an internal engine issue. This isn’t something you can control. It happens sometimes. The biggest thing is that we need to be able to bounce back from it and keep our spirits up. We were fast all weekend long. We were on the pole, we led laps and we were going to finish in the top five and I think we were fast enough to win the race. We can win a couple more before the year is over. We just need to keep our heads in the game and that’s what we are going to do.”

Absolutely not! Joey was junk on 2 tires earlier in the race. He would have finished 20th if he did that. It was the correct call to take 4.
