Driver of the No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Ford Fusion
Joey Logano's career took off quickly, right from the start. When he was just 19 years old, he became the youngest winning driver in NASCAR Cup history, and he’s been flying on the track ever since. Pennzoil, alongside Shell, is proud to serve as the primary sponsor for Logano. Pennzoil works with Team Penske and Roush Yates Engines to create an oil that's formulated to exceed expectations and hold up for over 500 miles at extremely high temperatures.
Recent NASCAR Career
The 2014 season proved to be a landmark year for Logano, as he transitioned from a hard-nosed competitor to one of the frontrunners to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship. By season's end, Logano helped drive the already legendary Team Penske to a historic year, racking up five wins, 16 top-five finishes, 22 top-10 results, 993 laps led, and the best average start (9.8) and average finish (11.3) numbers of his career.
These impressive results kept him in the 2014 NASCAR Playoffs until the very last race, and he ended the season with an impressive 4th place in the standings. Logano took this momentum into his next season by winning the first race of the season, the prestigious Daytona 500, and ensuring his place in the 2015 NASCAR Playoffs. Logano would go on to a career-high year in 2015 with six Monster Energy NASCAR Cup wins, 22 top-five finishes, and 28 top-10 results. During the season, Logano managed to secure victories on all types of tracks on the circuit: superspeedway, road course, intermediate track, and short track, and his average starting position was 6.9, the highest among all active drivers that season.
In 2016, after an electrifying and momentum-shifting victory in the penultimate race of The Playoffs in Phoenix, Logano finished 2nd place in the NASCAR Championship, narrowly losing to seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson. In the season finale race, it came down to the final laps of the race to determine the championship.
Logano continued to push performance in 2017 with 17 top-10 finishes, 10 top-five finishes, his career-first victory at The Clash at Daytona to start the season…and a win in the spring at Richmond. Logano proves year after year he can consistently compete with the best drivers NASCAR has to offer.
Stay tuned to watch his momentum carry him forward in 2018 in what is sure to be another exhilarating season.
