#22 Joey Logano
|Crew Chief||Todd Gordon|
|Birthday||MAY 24, 1990|
Life at Team Penske and Ford seems to agree with Joey Logano.
Since joining both organizations four 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 15 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races in that time, including a season-high six in 2015 that topped all drivers. Included in those six wins was a bit of NASCAR history as Logano swept an entire three-race segment in the Chase when he won Round of 12 events at Charlotte, Kansas and Talladega.
While he was unable duplicate that feat last season, Logano repeated his Talladega win and advanced to the Championship 4 at Homestead-Miami Speedway for the second time in three years. He was in position to win his first title in the closing laps, but ended up finishing second overall to Jimmie Johnson. That marked a career-high in points for Logano, who won three times in 2016.
Overall, Logano has posted multiple victories in Cup and XFINITY the past two 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 in 2015.
Prior to joining Team Penske, Logano drove four full seasons at Joe Gibbs Racing, where he won two Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races and 18 NASCAR XFINITY events. He made his first Cup start with the organization at the age of 18.
Logano enters 2017 with 17 career Cup victories and 27 XFINITY wins, which ranks ninth on the all-time NASCAR list.
· Logano made his Monster Energy NASCAR 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.”
· 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.
