Logano Looking for First Sprint Cup Title
For the third consecutive season, Joey Logano will be battling 15 other drivers in the NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup, including Penske teammate Brad Keselowski. Statistically, Logano is on track to have the best Sprint Cup season in his 7 years of racing in the series. Here’s a few stats for keep in mind for comparison.
Through 26 races, Logano has placed in the top five 16 times, a feat that took him the entire 36 race schedule to obtain in 2014. He’s been more consistent.
He’s notched five pole positions thus far, up from only a single pole start in 2014. He’s been faster.
With 10 races left on the schedule, he can easily surpass his 2014 career-best of 993 laps led only needing to lead the pack for 129 laps to reach the mark. He’ll likely be out front longer.
He may have only won three races thus far in 2015 compared to his five in 2014, but we’re also reminded of his two wins in last year’s Chase at New Hampshire and Kansas, which are tracks where he performs very well with the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion. Given his performance in the 2015 thus far, with checkered flags on a Superspeedway at Daytona, a road course at Watkins Glen, and at the circling madness short-track of Bristol, Logano has proven he has the ability to dominate under any condition. Just like Pennzoil Synthetics.
The first race on The Chase schedule is the myAFibRisk.com 400 at Chicagoland Speedway. Coverage starts Sunday, September 20 at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN. Remember to show your support for Logano on social media by using #TeamJL.
