Michigan Quickly Becoming Logano’s Best Tracks

Joey Logano has really turned his stats around when he joined Team Penske in 2013. No track is that more evident at than the Michigan International Speedway. See, since Logano joined Penske five years ago in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, the Connecticut native has only finished outside the top 10 just once. In fact, out of his 10 career starts on the 2-mile, D-shaped oval with Penske, Logano has reached victory lane twice. He finished ninth and first respectively in 2013. He backed that up with being ninth…

Logano Has Led A Ton Of Laps In Pocono, Just Doesn’t Have The Finishes, His Teammate Keselowski Has Been Dominant Instead

The “big three” among the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers should be the ones to beat this weekend in Pocono. After all, when Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick have combined to win 10 of the first 13 races of the season, you can’t go against them. But, this may be the time when Team Penske lands in victory lane again. So far, Joey Logano is the only one of the three drivers to win in 2018. Can he or his two other Team Penske teammates of…

Can Penske Turn Dover Struggles Around In Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive For Autism (2 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

If there’s any week where you may want to steer clear of the Team Penske drivers in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, this may be the week. Unfortunately, their trio of drivers haven’t fared too well at the Dover International Speedway lately. That’s why I wouldn’t think any of them would be in the hunt to win Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive For Autism (2 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Joey Logano hasn’t taken his No. 22 Ford home to a top five finish at the Monster Mile since 2004. In…

Fords Strong As Logano Ends Winless Streak In Victory In Sunday’s Geico 500

TALLADEGA, Ala – We shouldn’t be shocked that the Ford drivers combined to lead 126 of the 188 laps in Sunday’s Geico 500. After all, Fords were dominant in the season opening race at the Daytona International Speedway, the other restrictor plate track on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series schedule. We also shouldn’t be shocked by the winner in Sunday’s race at the Talladega Superspeedway either. Joey Logano led a race-high 70 of those 188 laps en route to his third victory at the high banked 2.66-mile Alabama track…

Busch, Harvick, Truex Leaps and Bounds Ahead Of Everyone Else In 2018

Parity is normally high in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. We’d threaten to have 16 winners heading into the playoffs each of the last two years. But, in 2018, three drivers have combined to win seven of the nine races. If you’re looking at a favorite to win the 2018 Cup championship, look no further than Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick or Martin Truex Jr. That trio of drivers are the ones everyone is trying to beat right now. The problem is, no one has enough speed to catch them.…

5 Favorites and 5 Sleepers For Sunday’s Geico 500 (2 p.m. ET/FOX/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

Talladega, Ala – Restrictor plate racing in NASCAR is one of the most hardest things to predict. That’s why some places will offer $1-million to whoever can predict the exact same finishing order as the top five at races in Daytona and Talladega. The reason they do this? They know it can’t be done. With cars are racing at speeds in excess of 200 mph and running wheel-to-wheel, you could be running in the lead pack but fall from a top five result to sub 20th place finish in a matter…

Hamlin, Logano Nab Top 5’s, But Still Don’t Have Overall Speed To Win

Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano have each been solid at the start of the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. Hamlin, now has five top six finishes through nine races. See, that stat could really be even more. Hamlin, was running well inside the top 10 in the closing stages at Las Vegas before having an unscheduled pit stop inside of 20 laps-to-go. Then, in Martinsville, the Joe Gibbs Racing driver had late contact with Kevin Harvick when the Stewart-Haas Racing driver brake checked Hamlin, and he’d have to…

Penske Duo Hoping For Same Richmond Success, But Better Luck Leaving The Spring Race This Time Around

Last year, the then Team Penske duo of Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski left the Richmond Raceway in the spring race with a 1-2 finish. Logano, capitalized on a late caution to take his No. 22 Ford to victory lane. Keselowski, led 110 laps and finished runner-up in his No. 2 Ford. At that point, Logano had eight top six finishes through the first nine races of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. Keselowski, has seven top sixes in those same nine races. But, after that race, Logano was…

Team Penske Falters Out In Food City 500 at Bristol

I originally didn’t expect much out of the Team Penske trio for this weekend’s Food City 500 at the Bristol (Tenn) Motor Speedway. In the two race practices on Saturday morning, they were seventh (Joey Logano), 20th (Ryan Blaney) and 28th (Brad Keselowski) in the first session, followed by 16th (Blaney), 20th (Keselowski) and 21st (Logano) in final practice. But, in the race itself, they were all three actually very strong.
