Joey Logano's predicted performance for NASCAR Pennzoil 400

Joey Logano’s skills cannot be underestimated in this race, considering he has won it twice, once in 2019 and a second time in 2020. The prediction table places Joey Logano in second with odds of +700.

Logano considers the 1.5 mile D-shaped oval track to be one of his best tracks.

The Penske driver has not yet collected any wins this season. However, he was the winner of NASCAR’s pre-season race, Busch Clash, at the LA Coliseum. Logano has an average finish of 8.8.

He has yet to earn any pole, but he performed excellently in the Wise Power 400 in Fontana, California, finishing in fifth place.

Currently, he stands second place in NASCAR’s point table with 77 points. He will be pushing hard to catch rookie driver Cindric, who is leading the table with 85 points.

Chase Elliott placed in the same tier as Joey Logano, with odds of +800. It would not be a surprise if he wins the Pennzoil 400. After his performance at the Auto Club, it's obvious that he has great potential.

For those willing to take a long-short, Ryan Blaney and William Byron are the best fit, with odds of +1000 and +1200, respectively.
