The DuPont Pioneer 250 - June 8, 2013 - Iowa Speedway Race Talk
The DuPont Pioneer 250 at Iowa Speedway (7/8 - mile speedway, Newton, Iowa)

No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang driven by Joey Logano

June 8, 2013

Primary Chassis: PRS-252
Last Raced: Richmond (finished 1st)
Backup Chassis: PRS-242
Last Raced: Phoenix (finished 2nd)

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • EXTREME DOUBLE DUTY: It’s nothing new when Joey Logano, or his Sprint Cup Series teammate Brad Keselowski, pulls double duty between the Cup and Nationwide Series. But this weekend will be a little different. Logano will be pulling double duty between the Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono and the Nationwide Series race at Iowa. The plan calls for Logano to practice and qualify his Cup car in Pocono, then fly to Iowa to compete in final practice before heading back to Pocono. On Saturday, he will compete in both Sprint Cup Series practices before heading to Iowa for qualifying and the NNS race.
  • BACK IN VICTORY LANE: Logano won his first Nationwide Series race of the season last weekend at Dover. The win marked several significant accomplishments for Logano. First, it was his 19th-career Nationwide Series win, good enough for 16th all-time. It also extended his streak of six-straight years with at least one NNS race victory. The win was his first for team owner Roger Penske, first for Ford and the 199th Nationwide Series win for Ford Racing. It was also Logano’s third-straight win at the “Monster Mile,” matching his accomplishment set at Kentucky Speedway, when he won at that track three-straight times.
  • OWNER’S POINTS: The victory in Dover allowed Logano to bring the No. 22 Discount Tire team within eight points of second-place in the Nationwide Series owner’s point standings.
  • FORMER WINNER: Even though Logano has never raced in the Nationwide Series at Iowa Speedway, he is a former winner at the track. He won the K&N Pro Series East vs. West race at Iowa in 2007, beating Kevin Harvick for the win.


WHY ARE YOU RUNNING THE RACE IN IOWA?

“I’m a racer and I love to race. I always tell people that. Any opportunity that I get to race I’m going to take that chance and do it. It’s just what I love to do. I know originally Ryan Blaney was supposed to run the event, but since he is running full-time in the Truck Series this year for Brad, he’s got a race that night. So I have the opportunity to do it and I’m going to make the most of it. We’ve have a good start of the season with me and the No. 22 guys with four top-fives and a win. So hopefully, we can just continue to keep that streak going in Iowa.”

HOW TOUGH WILL THE WEEKEND DOUBLE DUTY BE?

“It’s going to be tough for sure, but we have a plan that will help me get as much rest as possible. I’ll get a chance to rest and debrief and change on the plane rides between Pocono and Iowa each night. But when I’m in Pocono, I’m going to be focused on my Shell-Pennzoil Ford. When I’m in Iowa, I’m going to be focused on my Discount Tire Ford. It will all work out just fine. The ultimate goal is to go out there and win both races this weekend and I think we will have a shot at it for sure.”
