Can Ford Teams Capitalize During Daytona Speedweeks

Depending on what driver or person you ask, the answer may vary on what to expect out of the Ford teams for the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season.

Logano “Blindsided” By Struggles Last Year, Hopes For Better 2018 Ahead

2017 started off as good as one can for Joey Logano. He won the Clash at Daytona, then jumped out of the gates with eight top six finishes in the first nine races. That stretch ended with a win at Richmond in a Penske 1-2 finish. But, that win was later encumbered. To me, that encumberment was the turning point of the entire season. All the speed that they had prior to that costly penalty was gone. Logano, 27, had just five top six finishes over the remaining 27 races…

NASCAR’s Penalties Getting Wacky, What Logano Had To Do Made 0 Sense

First off, I applaud NASCAR for taking the stance that they did for Joey Logano and his team on Saturday. There’s absolutely no reason at all to have your car fail inspection four times. In fact, the embarrassment was on them on Friday when they weren’t even able to make a qualifying attempt as they couldn’t get his No. 22 Ford through inspection. Shame on you Todd Gordon for having yet another illegal car. Don’t say you were barely off or blame NASCAR’s lasers. 38 other cars all got through.…
