#22 Joey Logano
|Crew Chief||Todd Gordon|

Life at Team Penske and Ford seems to agree with Joey Logano.
Since joining both organizations three years ago, Logano has blossomed into one of the sports top drivers and figures to maintain that status for many years to come. He’s won 12 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races in that time, including a season-high six last season that topped all drivers, and has finished in the top-10 a total of 69 times in 108 starts (64%). Included in those six wins was a bit of NASCAR history as Logano swept an entire three-race segment in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup when he won Contender Round events at Charlotte, Kansas and Talladega.
Logano also played a key role in helping Roger Penske win his third straight owner’s title in the NASCAR XFINITY Series as he won four of his 11 starts.
Overall, Logano has posted 12 NSCS and 7 NXS wins in the past three years. He joined a select group of drivers to win at least one race in all three of NASCAR’s top touring series with his victory at Martinsville in a Brad Keselowski Racing F-150 truck last season.
Prior to joining Team Penske, Logano drove four full seasons at Joe Gibbs Racing, where he won two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races and 18 NASCAR XFINITY events. He made his first Cup start with the organization at the age of 18.
Logano goes into the 2016 season with 14 Cup victories and 25 XFINITY wins, which ranks ninth on the all-time NASCAR list.
· Logano earned his first major stock car victory in the USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series when he was only 15 years old, taking the checkered flag at Mansfield (Ohio) Motorsports Park in 2005. He ended that season with one win, six top-five and seven top-10 finishes in 14 starts.
· Logano made his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in September of 2008 and finished 32nd.
· In 2013, Logano started the Joey Logano Foundation, which goes to “improve the lives of children and families with life-altering needs in racing communities.”
