Biography - About Joey Logano

Joey Logano is part of a dynamic trio for Team Penske, including Brad Keselowski (No. 2) and Ryan Blaney (No. 12) with him in the No. 22 Mustang. He is entering his ninth season with Penske and 13th overall as a full-time Cup Series driver. Logano broke in Joe Gibbs Racing in 2009 with a somewhat dubious debut, wrecking in the Daytona 500, but was the youngest to start The Great American Race. He had just three Premier Series races under his belt from the season before, two for Jeff Moorad and one for JGR.

Joey Logano - Racing Career

In four seasons with Gibbs, Logano has just two wins in 144 starts but found enormous success with Penske with 24 since, including the 2018 Cup Series championship. He has made the playoffs seven times and four times reached the Championship 4, including last year. A 2009 Sunoco Rookie of the Year, Logano became the youngest in series history to win a race when he held off Hall of Famer Jeff Gordon at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He was 19 that year.

Logano had eleven wins in a two-year span, five in 2014, and a series-leading six the next with seven poles. It included 38 top-five and 50 top-ten finishes. The year he won the title, he had an average start and finish of 9.8 and 10.7, respectively.

Logano has run a partial Xfinity Series schedule spread over a dozen years. In just his third start at the age of 18, he became the youngest driver in series history to win a race, doing it at Kentucky Speedway. He would win 29 more; however, the stat that jumps off the page is the 143 top-tens in 176 starts. Logano also has a win in seven tries in the Camping World Truck Series and two more in ARCA Menards with four top-fives in as many starts.
