(NOTE: some older links may not work)

  • Kenseth and Logano meet before practice at Homestead: #20-Matt Kenseth met with #22-Joey Logano and NASCAR officials before practice Friday morning at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Kenseth, in his first race weekend back from a two-race suspension, met face-to-face with the driver he has feuded with over the past few weeks. "We had a little discussion before practice with NASCAR and met with them a little bit," Kenseth said. "Everything will be fine there. I wish none of it would have happened obviously. There's probably certain things we'll never totally agree on, but I think long term it probably will be fine, and I think we will work it all out."(ESPN)(11-20-2015)

  • Team Penske plans to eventually have four teams: For Team Penske to make the next progression longer-term, president Tim Cindric said, it will eventually have to field four teams, like powers Joe Gibbs Racing and Hendrick Motorsports. Until then, he said, the organization will not be regarded as an "elite team."
    "I don't think we're looked at as that yet," Cindric said. "I mean, you look at the pedigree, and you look at the time, it's only been since Joey arrived (in 2013) that we've had two cars consistently contending. I think you could say maybe there was a year with Brad and Kurt (Busch, in 2011) but before that, if you look at the 90s and you look at the 2000s time period, we were hit and miss. I don't think that we got to the point where we were a consistent contender with multiple cars, and I think we're almost over that hump. But I don't think we're viewed yet as an elite team within NASCAR because we only run two cars." Sponsorship shortfalls this summer quashed a plan to field a full-time program beginning in 2016 for Ryan Blaney, Cindric said. The 21-year-old is running partial national touring campaigns this season, with the Wood Brothers in Cup, for Penske in Xfinity, where he has won twice, and for Keselowski's trucks team, where he has one victory. "There's a certain tolerance that you have," Cindric said of sponsor money, "but you can't close the gap so far. For '17 it's a definite goal of ours to get ourselves back up to three and longer-term we want to be a four-car team." NASCAR currently limits to four the number of full-time Sprint Cup cars an organization can race. Teams capable of funding such operations benefit from economies of scale in building cars and information-gathering and -sharing. Of the three teams with the maximum, JGR qualified all four drivers for the 16-person Chase this season, HMS three and Stewart-Haas Racing two. "I think four is the right business model, but we felt like we had to go to two to get ourselves focused," Cindric said. "When you have two successful cars or one successful car and others that aren't successful, you spend as much time or more time on the car that is not successful. And we felt like we needed to take a step back and get ourselves to a point where we could simplify things.For sure we want to get back to three and eventually four. I do think four is easier to manage than three just because you typically have a better balance. I do think there is some truth to three's a crowd and it's harder to manage the three."(USA Today)(11-16-2015)

  • Kenseth: no regrets over wrecking Logano: Pushed to his limit after three races worth of slights, #20-Matt Kenseth firmly believed he had no choice but to retaliate against #22-Joey Logano. His deliberate wrecking of Logano drew a two-race suspension from NASCAR, and Kenseth said Friday he would have handled the payback differently had he known he'd draw such an unprecedented penalty. But in a telephone interview with The Associated Press, Kenseth said he would do it again. "I really stand by my actions," he said. "I feel like there's a breaking point. It wasn't just about being mad, it was about getting this fixed. It was time to make it stop." Logano spun Kenseth while racing for a win at Kansas that Kenseth needed to continue his championship chances. Kenseth retaliated two races later by wrecking Logano as Logano raced for a win at Martinsville Speedway that would have landed him a berth in the championship field. Kenseth had returned to the track down nine laps after a wreck with Logano teammate #2-Brad Keselowski. "You have to have respect in the garage area. If you are going to go out and try to race for wins and race for championships, you can't be a doormat or next year you are going to get knocked out again," Kenseth said. "Drivers are going to be like, 'Well, he ain't going to do nothing. We'll just knock him out of the race and then jack with him as much as possible and make sure he's not going to make it through because he's not going to retaliate.' "At some point, in my opinion, you have to retaliate." His mood upbeat and his deadpan humor intact in a 30-minute interview from North Carolina, Kenseth accepted responsibility for wrecking Logano but insisted he feels no remorse that it potentially ruined Logano's title chances. Kenseth will return for next weekend's season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and admitted the first four days after the suspension were "were really hard on me" and he struggled to watch Erik Jones drive his race car. He watched Sunday's race at Texas on television, and is eager to get back to his Joe Gibbs Racing team for the finale. When he makes his return, he vowed to be more aggressive on the track than he's ever been.(see full article at the Associated Press)(11-14-2015)

  • Three Chase teams with three warnings before Texas UPDATE: In the wake of #88-Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s team losing its pit stall selection because of a fourth warning for inspection failures, three championship contenders are facing the same fate. The teams of #4-Kevin Harvick, #2-Brad Keselowski and #22-Joey Logano each have compiled three warnings since August, when NASCAR revamped its policy so that a fourth warning ensured the loss of pit selection for a race. If the fourth warning is issued before pit selection occurs after qualifying, the penalty is enforced for that race. Otherwise, it is assessed in the next event. That means if the teams of Harvick, Keselowski or Logano were to receive a warning in prerace inspection Sunday for the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, the penalty would be enforced next week at Phoenix International Raceway - where a tight pit lane magnifies the importance of stall selection. A prequalifying warning next week also would result in loss of pit selection at Phoenix. If a fourth warning was issued in prerace inspection at Phoenix or prior to qualifying at Homestead-Miami Speedway, the loss of pit selection would be enforced in the championship finale. Keselowski's team received its three warnings at Michigan International Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway. Harvick's warnings were amassed at New Hampshire (twice) and Charlotte. Logano's were at Bristol, Charlotte and Kansas Speedway.(NBC Sports)(11-7-2015)
    UPDATE: Kevin Harvick's team has compiled three warnings since August, when NASCAR revamped its policy so that a fourth warning ensured the loss of pit selection for a race. Harvick's warnings were amassed at New Hampshire (twice) and Charlotte.
    There are two more remaining title-contending teams currently with two warnings: Joey Logano's #22 (Bristol and Charlotte) and Jeff Gordon's #24 (Bristol and Charlotte). Two have a warning apiece: #41-Kurt Busch (Dover) and #78-Martin Truex Jr. (Dover).
    Brad Keselowski's #2 Ford has zero warnings after his team's total was reset following a fourth warning that resulted in loss of pit selection last month at Kansas Speedway.(NBC Sports)(11-8-2015)

  • Penalty Announcement: Kenseth suspended 2 races; Patrick fined UPDATES Penalty upheld: Matt Kenseth , the driver of the #20 car, has been penalized for an infraction that occurred during the Nov. 1 race at Martinsville Speedway. This is a Behavioral Penalty (Sections 12.1, 12.8). Kenseth has been suspended from NASCAR through the completion of the next two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship events and placed on NASCAR probation for a six-month period following issuance of the penalty notice.
    "Based upon our extensive review, we have concluded that the #20 car driver, who is no longer in the Chase, intentionally wrecked the #22 car driver, a Chase-eligible competitor who was leading the race at the time,"said Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president and chief racing development officer. "The #20 car was nine laps down, and eliminated the #22 car's opportunity to continue to compete in the race.
    "Additionally, we factored aspects of safety into our decision, and also the fact that the new Chase elimination format puts a premium on each and every race. These actions have no place in NASCAR."
    Danica Patrick, the driver of the #10 car, has been penalized for an infraction that also took place during the Nov. 1 race at Martinsville Speedway. This is a Behavioral Penalty (Sections 12.1, 12.8). Patrick has been fined $50,000, assessed with the loss of 25 series championship driver points and placed on NASCAR probation through Dec. 31.(NASCAR)(11-3-2015)
    UPDATE: Joe Gibbs Racing announces today that driver Matt Kenseth will appeal the penalty issued by NASCAR. The appeal will challenge the severity of the penalty which is believed to be inconsistent with previous penalties for similar on-track incidents. There will be no further comments from JGR personnel during he appear process.(JGR)
    UPDATE 2: JGR's appeal will be expedited, meaning Kenseth's case will be heard by a three-person panel this week before Sunday's race at Texas Motor Speedway. If he loses, he can make a plea to Final Appeals Officer Bryan Moss. While Kenseth appeals the suspension, it can be deferred at NASCAR's discretion. Depending on the timing of the appeal hearings, that means Kenseth could be driving his #20 Toyota in practice or qualifying at Texas this weekend in advance of Sunday's race. The appeal likely would be settled before then, however.(NBC Sports)
    AND: Kenseth currently has 571 consecutive Sprint Cup starts, second only to Jeff Gordon's 794. He has run every race since the beginning of the 2000 season.
    UPDATE 3: The National Motorsports Appeals Panel has scheduled Kenseth's expedited appeal of his NASCAR penalty for 9:00am/et Thursday in Concord, NC.(11-3-2015)
    UPDATE 4: The National Motorsports Appeals Panel heard and considered the appeal of a Behavioral Penalty issued on Nov. 3 to Matt Kenseth (driver) relative to NASCAR Sprint Cup Series vehicle #20 at Martinsville Speedway. The penalty concerns the following sections in the 2015 NASCAR Rule Book: Sections 12.1 and 12.8. The original penalty assessed included suspension from NASCAR until the completion of the next two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events and placed on NASCAR probation for six months following the issuance of the Penalty Notice. Upon hearing the testimony, the decisions of the National Motorsports Appeals Panel are:
    1. The Appellant violated the rules set forth in the Penalty notice;
    2. The Panel affirms and upholds the original Penalty levied by NASCAR.
    The panel consisted of the following three individuals: Mr. Ken Clapp, Mr. Bill Mullis, Mr. Dale Pinilis.
    The Appellant has chosen to appeal the decision of the National Motorsports Appeals Panel to the National Motorsports Final Appeals Officer in accordance with Section 15 of the NASCAR Rule Book. The appeal will begin at 1:00pm/et.(11-5-2015)
    UPDATE 5: Today the National Motorsports Final Appeals Officer, Mr. Bryan Moss, heard and considered the appeal of a Behavioral Penalty issued on Nov. 3, 2015 to Matt Kenseth (driver) relative to NASCAR Sprint Cup Series vehicle #20 at Martinsville Speedway. The penalty concerns the following sections in the 2015 NASCAR Rule Book: Sections 12.1 and 12.8. The original penalty assessed included suspension from NASCAR until the completion of the next two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events and placed on NASCAR probation for six months following the issuance of the Penalty Notice. Upon hearing this afternoon's testimony, the National Motorsports Final Appeals Officer made the following decisions:
    1. The Appellant violated the Rules set forth in the Penalty Notice;
    2. The Penalty is amended to: "Suspended from NASCAR until the completion of the next two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship Events. Placed on NASCAR probation through December 31, 2015."
    The decision of the National Motorsports Final Appeals Officer is final and binding on all parties.(NASCAR)
    AND: "It didn't turn out like we wanted," Kenseth said after the final decision was announced. "I'm obviously more than a little disappointed on the decision and the penalties to start with. I'm the first driver in the 65-year history of NASCAR to get suspended for an incident that happened in a Sprint Cup Series race. I feel like I was unfairly made the example instead of knowing where the line is and what the penalties are. I'm extremely disappointed, but we'll get through this and go to Homestead.
    "I'm not going to change who I am, not going to change what I stand for, I'm not going to change how I race. I've been in this business for a long time, I feel like I've had a pretty good career to this point and I feel like I'm going to continue to have the respect on the racetrack I feel like I deserve. I'm looking forward to going to Homestead, hopefully going there and getting a win before the year is out."(USA Today)(11-5-2015)

  • France discusses differing penalties for Kenseth, Patrick: NASCAR Chairman & CEO Brian France appeared on the SiriusXM Radio Speedway show on Wednesday and addressed the two-race suspension handed out to #20-Matt Kenseth for his role in the wreck that knocked himself and Joey Logano out of Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Martinsville Speedway. Also penalized coming out of Martinsville was #10-Danica Patrick for aggressive driving on #38-David Gilliland. Patrick received a $50,000 fine and the loss of 25 driver points. When asked about the difference between Kenseth's aggressive driving and Danica's, France noted the stakes that were on the line.
    "Going back to Richmond, we made it very clear that anybody in the industry, any driver or participant who intentionally tries to alter the outcome of events or championships, that that crosses a different line than a racing problem between two drivers," France said.
    When asked about whether NASCAR drivers should be allowed to self-police the sport, France clarified the sanctioning body's position. "What Robin (Pemberton) was saying a few years ago was hey look, boys have it, do your normal thing, and if we over-officiate, we'll draw back on that and let the normal racing action of NASCAR happen," France said. "And that's what he meant, and that's what we tried to do."
    "... when there are lines that are crossed, like we believe there were in Martinsville, then NASCAR will step in and deal with that. And it's as simple as that."(NASCAR)(11-5-2015)

  • Logano comments on Kenseth's penalty: #22-Joey Logano said NASCAR made the right decision to suspend #20-Matt Kenseth two races for wrecking him at Martinsville Speedway because series officials "needed to regain control of our sport." "Obviously, they put their foot down," Logano told [NBC's Tony] DiZinno. "I feel like it's a good thing. They needed to regain control of our sport. I feel like it's a good direction and the right thing to do."
    Logano also reaffirmed that his contact with Kenseth at Kansas was different from what happened at Martinsville. At Kansas, they were racing for the lead in the final laps. At Martinsville, Kenseth was 10 laps down and Logano led with 45 laps left. "If I look at Kansas, it's a racing thing," Logano told NASCAR Talk. "If I look at the way we were racing each other, he threw some blocks, I understand that. The third one, I was on the inside, I didn't back out. There's really not much for me to say to him after that. That was kind of what happened. And he knows what happened. He's a smart enough race car driver to know what happened. Whatever happened at Martinsville was, apparently to NASCAR, unacceptable."
    Both Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. said this week that they believe Logano didn't help himself with comments he made after the Kansas race, saying that further ignited the situation with Kenseth and played a role in Kenseth's desire for retaliation. Logano said he had not heard what Gordon or Earnhardt said, but defended himself. "I think this is a test of your character and a test of your faith," Logano said. "You need to stay true to your character in these types of situations and the type of person you are. It's an amazing opportunity is the way I look at it. We have an opportunity right now to win a championship. "Our minds are focused on doing that. We can be the great team we know we are. This isn't going to shut us down. We're way stronger than that. I'm excited to get to Texas. I'm excited to get back on the track and give it our best shot."(NBC Sports)(11-4-2015)

  • Martinsville penalties to be announced later today: NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France indicated a harsh penalty could be in store for Matt Kenseth when officials release their decision later Tuesday. France, appearing on Sirius/XM Radio, said Kenseth went too far in intentionally wrecking Joey Logano at Martinsville Speedway as payback for an incident at Kansas Speedway last month. "We don't want that to happen again," France said. "We don't want any of our events to be altered in a way they shouldn't be. What we want to prevent happening is drivers or any participant in NASCAR to take matters into their own hands and begin to control the outcome of races beyond hard racing. When that happens, that's a very serious thing for us. And we'll be dealing with that."
    Asked specifically about a possible suspension for Kenseth, France said all options were on the table and indicated some penalty could also be issued to Danica Patrick after she intentionally crashed into David Gilliland.
    France said Martinsville was much different than the racing incident between Logano and Kenseth at Kansas, which he had termed "quintessential NASCAR." "That was an entirely different situation," he said. "What we're not going to do is take the style of NASCAR and parlay that into something where one driver believes the way to pay back somebody for something that happened is take matters into their own hands. Obviously, we won't be accepting that.The way to pay drivers back is to race them hard. That's NASCAR. But what happened on Sunday is not quite the way we'd like things to turn out."(USA Today)(11-5-2015)

  • Contact between Kenseth and Logano at Martinsville; NASCAR will consider penalties for Kenseth: Two weeks after #20-Matt Kenseth was taken out by #22-Joey Logano, Kenseth returned the favor, wrecking him when Logano was leading the Sprint Cup Series race with 47 laps remaining Sunday at Martinsville Speedway. Kenseth, who himself was vying for the lead a handful of laps earlier, was involved in a wreck that he felt was triggered by Logano's Penske Racing teammate #2-Brad Keselowski. But Sunday's wreck appeared to be in response to an incident two weeks earlier, when Logano turned Kenseth for the win with five laps remaining at Kansas Speedway, a move that eventually kept Kenseth from advancing to the third round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
    "What happened at Kansas was a completely different deal," Logano said. "We were racing for the win, and he blocks you a few times, and we raced hard, and he blocked me and spun out. That's what happened there. Here, he was a complete coward. ... It's a chicken-you-know-what move to completely take out the leader when your race is over. ... He'll have his."
    Although Kenseth's car was heavily damaged, NASCAR told his team not to repair it and that he couldn't return to the race.
    "I had two chances to win in the last three weeks and got wrecked out of both of them going for the lead, one from him and one from Brad," Kenseth said. "That's disappointing." Kenseth didn't directly answer whether he turned Logano intentionally. "The right front was dragging down there and probably should've went to the garage area and went into the corner there and, man, couldn't get it to turn and collected him," Kenseth said. "I know it's got to be disappointing for him, you know? It's a tough sport. Some days you're the bat, and some days you're the ball. I was the ball a few weeks ago, and I was the ball again today, so that part is never fun."
    Kenseth and team owner Joe Gibbs met with NASCAR officials after the race. They both declined to comment after the meeting.
    Keselowski said he lost control of his car after getting hit from behind.
    NASCAR executive vice president Steve O'Donnell said after the race that he was disappointed in Kenseth's actions and that NASCAR will make any decisions of additional discipline by Tuesday. He wouldn't rule out a suspension. "There's still a lot to digest from what happened tonight," O'Donnell said. "We'll do that and have some additional conversations. ... What was disappointing today was in the incident, [it was] a driver not competing for a win [and] was in fact many laps down when that happened. In our minds, that's a little bit different than two drivers really going after it coming out of Turn 4 for a win."(ESPN.com)(11-1-2015)

  • Logano going for 4th straight win: #22-Joey Logano is approaching rarefied air. With last Sunday's victory at Talladega Superspeedway, he's already the first driver ever to sweep all three races in a single round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Admittedly, the Chase's elimination format is only two years old, but three straight wins puts Logano in elite company. A fourth straight at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday would elevate his growing stature as a major player in NASCAR's top series. Only two drivers have ever won more than four straight races: Richard Petty, who had streaks of 10 (1967) and five (1971), and Bobby Allison, who won five straight events (1971). Since #24-Jeff Gordon won four in a row in 1998, only one driver has duplicated the feat - #48-Jimmie Johnson in 2007.(NASCAR Wire Service), to see a list of all drivers who have won three or more consecutive races, see the Sprint Cup Series All-Time Winners page..(10-31-2015)

  • Logano wins at Talladega: #22-Joey Logano won the CampingWorld.com 500 Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway for his 6th win of the season, 1st win at Talladega and 14th career win. Logano led 20 of the 196 laps.
    It was an unusual end to the race. First, coming to the green flag for the green-white-checkered finish, #48-Johnson and #42-Larson spun out as the cars got through the restart zone. NASCAR had thrown the green flag, but put the yellow back out before the cars got to the start-finish line and froze the field to attempt another restart.
    Then on the next restart, #4-Harvick, who had been reporting engine problems, failed to get a clean start. #6-Bayne passed Harvick, but made contact with him trying to get back in line and was spun out. Several drivers accused Harvick of intentionally wrecking Bayne. About a dozen cars were collected and NASCAR threw the caution just past the start finish line.
    NASCAR had to review video tape to determine Logano was in the lead at the time the caution came out and establish the finishing order for the rest of the field.
    Logano won all 3 races in the Contender round of The Chase.
    #88-Earnhardt, Jr. finished 2nd followed by #24-Gordon, #2-Keselowski, #19-Edwards, #27-Menard, #78-Truex, Jr, #15-Bowyer, #17-Stenhouse, Jr., and #41-Busch.
    #11-Hamlin, #31-Newman, #88-Earnhardt, Jr., and #20-Kenseth were eliminated from the Chase.
    The race went caution free for the first 131 laps, the longest green flag strecth to start a race this season.
    There were 30 lead changes among 18 drivers and 3 cautions for 18 yellow flag laps.
    The average speed was 167.311mph.

  • Kenseth still not happy with Logano: After late contact from #22-Joey Logano knocked #20-Matt Kenseth out of the lead at Kansas, causing him to finish 14th, Kenseth said Logano had wrecked him on purpose. He as asked about the incident again on Friday at Talladega:
    Have you talked to Joey Logano?
    Kenseth: "No. Um, no. Yeah, I haven't heard from him (Joey Logano)."
    Is there anything you would do differently last week in Kansas?
    Kenseth: "Well, I wouldn't have done anything differently because I didn't do anything wrong. I did everything I was supposed to do. I tried to get away. He (Joey Logano) drove the car in the wall himself twice. I don't know how you can possibly either, 'A,' block someone or put somebody in the wall when they're not up alongside you - it's pretty talented if you can do that when somebody's four feet behind you, so, no, I did everything I could to win the race. That's the way I'd race to win any race is to race hard as you can and do whatever you can, be clean about it and go as fast as I could go and that's all I was doing. I got hit from behind. I couldn't do anything about that. I couldn't change that."
    Would you feel better if Joey Logano said he wrecked you intentionally to win?
    Kenseth: "Yeah, some day he might mature a little bit, but, first of all, he should have stopped running his mouth, 'A,' and, number two, he's lying when he said he didn't do it on purpose because he lifted your tires off the ground offset to the left and he's too good a race car driver to do that by accident."
    (Toyota Racing)(10-24-2015)

  • Kenseth, Logano comment on contact at Kansas:
    What happened between yourself and Joey Logano in the closing laps?
    Kenseth: "It's hard to drive a car with the rear tires off the ground. I was moving around the best I could, Joey (Logano) was a lot tighter, a lot faster on the short run, but we were so much better on the long run. I could still kind of get up to the top and get a run and get around him. We caught those two lapped cars, 'Crazy' (spotter) told me I was clear and I was, I pulled up in front of him and he just lifted my tires off the ground and he wrecked us."
    What will you talk to Joey Logano about after the incident?
    Kenseth: "I won't talk to Joey (Logano), I don't have anything to talk to him about really. You make decisions every day, you make decisions every minute behind the wheel. To me strategically, that doesn't seem like such a great decision for him, but it's the one he made and that's how he wanted to win. I'm one of the only guys that I think hasn't been into yet with Joey and I've always raced him with a ton of respect, I've actually been one of his biggest fans - I'm certainly not anymore, but I always was. It's a shame, I'm glad the cars not wrecked, we'll just go onto Talladega and race them there."(Toyota Racing)
    Take us through what happened with Matt and the laps before:
    Logano: "It was just hard racing. He raced me really hard. I raced him the same way he raced me. It was a lot of fun out there racing for a win like that. The cars were very fast, equally paired and I couldn't be more proud of what this Shell/Pennzoil team is doing right now. We're such a fast race car, such a great team. We've showed it two weeks in a row now and this is a lot of fun. We've just got to ride this wave and we've got to get to Homestead still."
    You got to im and then fell back, and then caught back up. What happened at that point?
    Logano: "He came up and started taking my air away, as he should, and I had to kind of adjust what I was doing and try to find a fast way back to him. I was able to get those runs back to him and get back to him."(Ford Racing)(10-19-2015)

  • Logano wins at Kansas: #22-Joey Logano won the Hollywood Casino 400 Sprint Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway for his 5th win of the season, 2nd win at Kansas and 13th career win. Logano led 42 of the 269 laps.

  • Penske questioned NASCAR for not penalizing Kenseth on final restart UPDATE: Car owner Roger Penske questioned NASCAR not penalizing winner Matt Kenseth on the final restart of Saturday night's race at Richmond International Raceway, saying "you just can't have that kind of officiating.'' Restarts have been an issue in recent weeks. Drivers and a car owner raised questions about restarts in the pre-race meeting at Bristol last month. Dale Earnhardt Jr. said NASCAR needed to do a better job policing restarts after that race. Kenseth led the field to green with 18 laps to go and accelerated quickly. Logano, who was second and started on the outside of Kenseth, did not mount a challenge as Kenseth pulled away. Logano finished third. "I think the last restart, the guy must have closed the window and pulled the blind down,'' Penske said. "That's how bad it was.'' Penske wants a clearer definition of the restart rule. "I think they've got to come up with some way to say what's right or what's wrong,'' Penske said. "To me, this is a perfect example of inconsistencies. When you're racing for as tight as we are and everything that is on the line, you just can't have that kind of officiating.''
    Kenseth said he was focused on getting a quick restart. "I knew for sure I wasn't going to go late,'' he said. "Joey and Brad and are just so good on restarts. They just launch so good. I don't know what they do. I wish we did. They just launch so fast. All the restarts I had tonight, Joey would typically beat me. When we got that debris caution ... I knew that I had to have a good pit stop, and I had to have a good restart and get some distance and hold on because our short run wasn't the strongest part of our car tonight. I knew it was going to be important to make sure we were clear when we got to Turn 1.''(NBC Sports)(9-13-2015)
    UPDATE NASCAR defended its decision Monday not to penalize Matt Kenseth on the final restart of Saturday night's Sprint Cup race at Richmond International Raceway. Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president and chief racing development officer, addressed the restart in his weekly appearance on "The Morning Drive" on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. Asked if NASCAR was content on making the calls on restarts, O'Donnell said: "I think for now we're still content. It is ... a ball-and-strike call. We've got the ability to go back and look at video, which we do, and in this case made the call and moved on from it. It's still one that we want to leave in the drivers' hands. If we have to get involved and make those calls with more video, I think we'll do that, but we'd still like to see it play out the way it does through the final 10."(NBC Sports)(9-15-2015)

  • Freightliner and Team Penske extend partnership: Team Penske announced that it has extended its partnership with Freightliner Trucks, the largest division of Daimler Trucks North America and one of the most recognizable and respected names in the trucking industry. A Team Penske partner for over 10 years, Freightliner has announced a five-year extension that will continue to see the team utilize Freightliner Trucks and equipment for all of its NASCAR and IndyCar racing programs.
    "Freightliner continues to be one of our strongest partners at Team Penske," said Roger Penske. "We rely on their support and their transportation capabilities in getting our race teams around the country each and every week. We appreciate the continued support of Freightliner as we build on this established partnership. They do a fantastic job marketing our team to their vendors and customers and Team Penske is proud to continue to partner with Freightliner."
    While Team Penske transporter drivers will remain behind the wheel of Freightliner trucks for all their transportation needs, Freightliner will continue to maximize Team Penske assets for its marketing programs. Freightliner regularly hosts customers, vendors and distributors at races throughout the year, highlighting the experience with appearances from Team Penske drivers.
    "We want to align with the best in the motorsports world and Team Penske certainly sets the standard," said Stacey Premo, Motorsports Marketing Manager for Freightliner Trucks. "During the course of our relationship, our association with Team Penske and their drivers has provided a lot of great experiences for our dealers and customers, and we are excited to continue that partnership."
    Freightliner also participates in several other racing initiatives, including the NASCAR Hauler Challenge Game app and the NASCAR Run Smart Hauler Challenge, a timed skills obstacle course challenge for transporter drivers in the Sprint Cup and XFINITY Series. The Challenge consists of five events throughout the year with drivers being eliminated at every round. Last season, Team Penske's drivers swept the top two spots, with Greg Sorber, the transporter driver of the No. 22 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team, claiming the top honor.
    "I've driven a lot of trucks over the years, but the Freightliner Cascadia we have now is one of the best trucks that I've ever seen," said Sorber. "We put between 60,000 to 70,000 miles on these trucks taking our cars from track to track every weekend and that's a lot of wear and tear on them. And rarely do we have an issue. In fact, in the two years I've had the truck I'm driving now, not once have I had to do anything with it other than routine maintenance. I'm definitely excited to continue working with Freightliner for years to come."(Team Penske)(8-20-2015)

  • NASCAR confiscates splitters from Penske cars UPDATE no penalties: Both Team Penske cars had issues getting through NASCAR technical inspection prior to Sunday's Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan. Joey Logano's #22 Ford was the first of the two Penske cars to roll through tech, with NASCAR taking issue with the thickness of the front splitter. When Brad Keselowski's #2 car went through tech, it had the same issue. NASCAR required the crews of both cars to remove the original splitters and install new ones before going back through the inspection line. A NASCAR official confiscated both splitters, taking them back to the NASCAR hauler in the garage. #22 crew chief Todd Gordon said NASCAR just did not like what they saw with the splitter, saying it was "no big deal." NASCAR allows teams to smooth out the splitter prior to the race, but issues arise when teams begin manipulating the edges and thickness of the splitter. NASCAR spokesperson Kristi King addressed the issue on Sunday, saying the splitters on both cars were so close in tolerance the sanctioning body asked the team to err on the side of caution and change the splitters. Despite the issue, neither Penske team will lose their starting positions for Sunday's race at Michigan, and if any penalties or fines result from the issue they will likely be announced early next week.(Fox Sports)(8-16-2015)
    UPDATE Team Penske drivers #2-Brad Keselowski and #22-Joey Logano will not be penalized for the splitters NASCAR took from the cars before the Sprint Cup Series race Sunday at Michigan. NASCAR officials felt the splitters were so close to being non-compliant that they had the Penske teams replace the splitter in order to lessen the likelihood of the splitters being out of compliance following the race. They also impounded the splitters to take a closer look at them this week, and NASCAR determined there were no issues. A splitter affects the amount of front downforce for the car.(ESPN)(8-18-2015)

  • Logano dominates Pocono, then runs out of fuel: #22-Joey Logano dominated Sunday's Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway, leading 97 of the 160 laps before running out of fuel while leading with just three laps to go and eventually finishing 20th. With fuel strategy likely to decide the winner of the race, Crew Chief Todd Gordon called Logano to pit road for the final time on lap 123, leaving 37 laps to the finish. Logano would again find his way to the front and pull to a big lead before Gordon ordered Logano to start saving fuel. With many of the front runners saving gas, Logano continued to hold a commanding lead while in fuel conservation mode. However, with just three laps to go and while in the lead, Logano ran out of fuel on the back stretch and coasted to the pits, losing the top spot. Logano then got a speeding penalty while coasting in to get gas, relegating him to 20th as the checkers flew. Logano Quote: "I guess our numbers, from what Todd said, was good enough to make it by a half a lap. I was saving fuel just to cushion it. I thought I was going to be good and then I started running out and knew we weren't going to make it. It was tough. We did everything right today. We had such a fast Shell Pennzoil Ford and got clean air and stayed up there and the pit crew did awesome on pit road and kept me up where I needed to. We keep getting so close to these wins and they don't happen and it is so frustrating. The truth is that is if we keep racing hard and racing to the front we will win races. We were so close. You are counting down the laps in your head thinking you are going to make it but just didn't do it. I am so proud still of what we did today and it was a great weekend and we are happy about the speed we have in our cars and the way we executed, we just have to figure out why we didn't have enough gas."(Team Penske)(8-3-2015)

  • NASCAR issues written warnings to five teams: NASCAR announced Wednesday that #88-Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s team and #22-Joey Logano's team were among five Sprint Cup teams that received written warnings for failing inspection last weekend at Kansas Speedway. NASCAR stated that the teams of Logano, #13-Casey Mears and #27-Paul Menard received written warnings for failing pre-qualifying inspection twice. NASCAR stated that the teams of Earnhardt and #35-Cole Whitt received written warnings for failing pre-race inspection twice. The Sprint Cup Rule Book states in section that if the same team receives two warnings during two consecutive events - whether a points event or not - then the team faces a P1 penalty that could include one or more of the following: Deduction of practice time, deduction of qualifying time, last choice in selecting pits, delay in order of inspection and/or other penalties. NASCAR has placed an emphasis on teams getting through inspection in a timely fashion this season. Teams were warned last month about formalized penalties for failing to pass inspection. NASCAR also announced that the cars taken from last weekend's Kansas race to the R&D Center for further inspection all passed. Those cars were #48-Jimmie Johnson's, #4-Kevin Harvick's and #20-Matt Kenseth's.(NBC Sports)(5-14-2015)

  • 811 Logo featured on #22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford in five races: The #22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion of Joey Logano, will help raise awareness about the importance of safe digging during five races in 2015. Shell Pipeline Company L.P. and the Common Ground Alliance are working with Team Penske on the program, which will highlight 811, the national "Call Before You Dig" hotline, at the races immediately preceding and following National 811 Day on August 11:
    July 11 at Kentucky; July 26 at Indy; August 9 at Watkins Glen; August 16 at Michigan; and November 1 at Martinsville.
    "We're bringing back this program for a seventh year because it's such an important cause. Every time we display the 811 logo on the decklid of the #22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion in a race the Common Ground Alliance sees an increase in 811 calls," said Greg Smith, President of SPLC. "When somebody starts a digging project without calling 811, they run the risk of damaging pipelines, or knocking out power or gas to an entire neighborhood, for which they can be held financially responsible. It's critical that everyone remember to call before digging, even for small projects like planting trees or shrubs."
    "We are proud to continue to support Shell in the longstanding work they do to further awareness of safe digging practices," said Roger Penske. "Just like Joey has a spotter to let him know whether or not it is clear before he makes a move on the track, 811 helps you make sure you are clear to break ground."

  • Penske warns teams not to mess with tires: Roger Penske has warned his NASCAR team to stay out of any controversy regarding the possible manipulation of tires used during races. The team owner is aware of rampant industry speculation that some crews are drilling tiny holes in tires to allow air to escape during a race, a process known as "bleeding tires." NASCAR has confiscated tires the last two weeks, including those of Team Penske driver #22-Joey Logano following the race at Phoenix. "It's my understanding that there could be ways to have the tires lose pressure over a stint," Penske said Saturday at the IndyCar Series event at St. Petersburg. Obviously with softer tires, you are going to have better grip and better performance. I've told our guys 'Hey, let's stay out of this.' I can tell you this: we are not making any adjustments to our tires for that type of activity." Penske didn't know what NASCAR was looking for when it took Logano's tires after the March 15 race at Phoenix. He also doesn't know if anyone in the Sprint Cup Series garage is actually bleeding tires. "I can't ever point my finger at anyone else. At the end of the day, guys go fast for different reasons, and someone has an idea that that's going on," Penske said. "I've seen no evidence at this point, at least it hasn't been show to me, to say 'this is happening.' The only finger I'm pointing is at my own guys to make sure we're not involved in anything like that."(Associated Press)(3-29-2014)

  • Logano participates in seat swap with Cruz Pedregon: Snap-on sponsored NHRA Funny Car driver Cruz Pedregon and Snap-on sponsored Team Penske driver #22-Joey Logano swapped racing roles Wednesday when Pedregon got behind the wheel of a Sprint Cup Series car and Logano powered a Cobra Jet during the "Snap-on Seat Swap." The event offered Pedregon the opportunity to "take turns" at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Logano runs down the quarter on the neighboring zMAX Dragway prior to this weekend's NHRA 4-Wide Nationals in Charlotte. Pedregon, who comes from a family of drag racers, walked Logano through the car before heading to the pit to fire up the Cobra Jet and go through the steps of making a pass. Pedregon and Logano made several practice runs in a side-by-side Cobra Jet before the Daytona 500 winner took three drag racing runs on his own. The session ended at zMAX with Pedregon, a two-time Funny Car champion, making a solo run before lunch.

  • NASCAR examines tires from Harvick, Logano: NASCAR confirmed it found nothing out of the ordinary with the tires used by Joey Logano and Kevin Harvick in Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Phoenix International Raceway. The tires were seized during Sunday's CampingWorld.com 500 in what was described as a "regularly scheduled audit" by NASCAR executive vice president chief racing development officer Steve O'Donnell. "We've done it in the past," O'Donnell told SiriusXM's "The Morning Drive" during a Monday interview. "It's something we check working with Goodyear, making sure the tires supplied are where we want them to be. It's just another area of the car. We don't expect to find anything; it's just something we like to do every once in a while." NASCAR normally examines tires at its R&D Center in Concord, N.C., but those from Logano and Harvick were checked at a remote site with NASCAR haulers on the road in the midst of a three-race swing through Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Phoenix and Auto Club Speedway. The decision to confiscate the tires for examination was made independent of Goodyear and unrelated to durability. The tire supplier occasionally keeps tires for further examination (such as with tire failures on the cars of Brad Keselowski and Dale Earnhardt Jr. last October at Kansas Speedway).(NBC Sports)(3-17-2015)

  • Team Penske named finalist for Sports Team of the Year: The Sports Business Journal (SBJ) announced that Team Penske has been named a finalist in the Sports Team of the Year category for the eighth annual Sports Business Awards. Team Penske is the only motorsports program to be nominated this year for the prestigious award. Other Team of the Year finalists include: the Charlotte Hornets (NBA), the Los Angeles Galaxy (MLS), the Los Angeles Kings (NHL), the Seattle Seahawks (NFL) and the St. Louis Cardinals (MLB). The winner will be announced on May 20, 2015 at the awards ceremony to be held at the New York Marriott Marquis at Times Square. Launched in 2008, the Sports Business Awards were established by the Sports Business Journal and Sports Business Daily to celebrate and recognize the leaders, visionaries and day-to-day practitioners who personify excellence in the business of sports. The 2015 nominees and winners are recognized for excellence and outstanding achievement in sports business for the period spanning March 1, 2014 through February 28, 2015. The 2014 season was a landmark year for Team Penske, as it included unprecedented championships in both the Verizon IndyCar Series with Will Power - the 13th open-wheel title for Team Penske - and the NASCAR XFINITY Series, where the #22 team took home it's second-straight owners' title. In addition, both Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano finished inside the top five in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship standings, with Logano in contention for the title heading into the final race of the season. Across INDYCAR and NASCAR, all six of Team Penske's full-time drivers and cars finished in the top five in series points with 22 wins equating to a winning percentage of 25 percent of the total races run.(Team Penske)(3-17-2015)

  • Hornish would like to see Penske share more information: For the second straight season, Team Penske is leading the charge for Ford in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Joey Logano gave the blue ovals a victory in the season-opening Daytona 500, and a Team Penske car has been the highest finishing Ford in each of the first three races of the year. That fact has not been lost on the other Ford teams in the Sprint Cup garage. Making his full-time return to Sprint Cup this season with Richard Petty Motorsports, #9-Sam Hornish Jr. knows the other Ford teams have work to do to keep up with Roger Penske's two-car operation.
    "We know that there is work to be done and the biggest thing is being able to try to figure out how we do everything in the right way," Hornish said Saturday at Phoenix International Raceway. "How do we figure out what the Penske guys are doing that is making them better than us? That is their job: To go out there and beat us, and ours is the same way, as well as the rest of the competition. Obviously we would like to have Ford be one through 10 or whatever the number is, but we have some work to do to catch up to the Penske guys, and that is what we are trying to figure out," he said. "While Ford would like us all to be right up there, they can't go, 'Hey, you guys have to share everything you are doing.' Because it doesn't work that way."
    While Hornish understands Team Penske cannot open the doors of information wide to the competition, he believes pointing other Ford teams in the right direction could go a long way toward improving the overall performance of Ford Racing. "They don't have to divulge all the secrets," Hornish said of Penske. "If you show us where the end of the tunnel is, we might get there a little faster than if we are working our way through a maze, but it is a hard thing to do. If we were ahead, we wouldn't want to have to share too much of our stuff, either. I think that is part of the interesting aspect; even though the cars look very similar on the racetrack, there is a lot going on underneath them that is very different."(FoxSports)(3-15-2015)

  • Asbury Automotive Group Honors the Boy Scouts of America: On Sunday March 1st Preston Chandler, an Eagle Scout, will be celebrating his 16th birthday with his family at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Preston will be featured on the rear deck lid of Joey Logano's #22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford. If Logano and the #22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford make it to Victory Lane this weekend in the Folds of Honor Quiktrip 500, the Asbury Automotive Group will make a $50,00 donation to the Boy Scouts of America.(AMS)(3-1-2015)

  • Pennzoil Makes Donation to PVA after Joey Logano's Win in Daytona 500: After Joey Logano jump-started his season by winning the Daytona 500 on 2/22 in the #22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford; Pennzoil commemorated the milestone victory by donating $22,222 to the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA). Upon learning about the donation Logano announced he would match the $22,222 contribution to his personal charity. To take the offer to the next level, Pennzoil is incentivizing Logano to bring the #22 to Victory Lane again at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 8th. Should he grab the checkered flag again in the #22 Pennzoil Platinum Ford, Pennzoil will add another '2' to the donation figure and donate an additional $222,222 to the PVA.(AMS)(3-1-2015)

    During the Daytona 500 Champion's Breakfast, DIS President Joie Chitwood III
    presents Joey Logano with a steel-and-gold Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watch

  • Logano Gets Champion's Treatment at Daytona 500 Champion's Breakfast: Newly crowned Daytona 500 champion Joey Logano was off-and-running again Monday morning. It started early with the annual Champion's Breakfast in the Bill France Room at Daytona International Speedway, where Logano was presented with the traditional champion's jacket. He also was surprised with a new first-year presentation for Daytona 500 champions: a steel-and-gold Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watch. The timepiece will come in handy. Logano has a jam-packed schedule of media activities this week, including appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman tonight and the TODAY show Tuesday, plus a trip to ESPN's studios in Bristol, Conn.
    "I didn't sleep much [last night], that's for sure," Logano said. "I didn't go to sleep, really. My mind just kept thinking about the whole race, how it all played out. I just kept reliving the moment over and over again. It's amazing ... the Daytona 500. It's something that's very special. And now, I'm excited about the [media] adventure that's ahead of me."
    At Monday morning's breakfast, Logano, crew chief Todd Gordon and car owner Roger Penske spoke with media prior to another tradition being renewed: installing the Daytona 500 winning car - in this instance the yellow-and-red #22 Shell Pennzoil Ford - inside the Speedway Ticket and Tours Building. The car will be part of the Speedway tours program and will be returned to the team at the 2016 Daytona 500, a tradition that began in 1996.
    During the Champion's Breakfast, DIS President Joie Chitwood III presented champion's jackets to Logano, Gordon and Penske; the Harley J. Earl Daytona 500 trophy to Penske; and the Cannonball Baker trophy to Gordon. Chitwood and Logano also unveiled the logo for next year's 58th annual Daytona 500.(DIS)(2-23-2015)

    #4-Harvick finished 2nd followed by #88-Earnhardt Jr., #11-Hamlin, #48-Johnson, #13-Mears, #15-Bowyer, #78-Truex Jr., #5-Kahne and #16-Biffle.
    Pole winner #24-Gordon dominated early in the race, leading 87 of 200 laps until getting caught up in a wreck on the final lap, finishing 33rd.
    There were 27 lead changes among 12 drivers. There were 7 cautions for 26 yellow flag laps with a 7 minute red flag before the green-white-checkered finish.

  • Harvick confronts Logano for late tap: #4-Kevin Harvick and #22-Joey Logano traded heated words following the Sprint Unlimited after Logano got into the back of Harvick's car with two laps remaining. The two drivers were nose to nose (Harvick still having his helmet on) after they had gotten out of their cars following the 75-lap exhibition event at Daytona International Speedway. At one point, Logano appeared to lunge toward Harvick before they were separated and returned to their cars. "He's just Kevin," Logano said. "He's an instigator, right? It's the same thing he is every other time he talks to someone. It's the same old crap. It just happens all the time. It's no big deal." Harvick was upset because he felt Logano's move was silly. "He thinks he was helping, but you can't just drive somebody straight in the corner into the fence," said Harvick, the 2014 Sprint Cup champion. "He kind of did the same thing to me at Talladega. I told him, 'The karma train is coming after you.' And it bit him right in the [butt]. ... I just didn't appreciate just getting straight drove into the wall." Logano finished sixth; Harvick was 11th.(ESPN)(2-15-2015)

  • Keselowski, Logano to drive concept car: A group of students from Cedarville University will be getting some national attention at the Detroit Auto Show next week. And they'll be getting some feedback on their urban concept car from a pair of NASCAR stars. The team of eight was invited to the show by Shell, which is moving its annual Eco-Marathon from Houston to the Motor City. Cedarville engineering students have a long history of success at the event, leading to the invitation to participate in the auto show's media days Monday and Tuesday. NASCAR's Brad Keselowski, the 2012 Sprint Cup Champion, and Joey Logano, the 2009 Sprint Cup rookie of the year, are expected to test drive the Cedarville vehicle. The students are hoping the NASCAR drivers will be able to evaluate Urbie's suspension and overall user friendliness as they continue to tweak the vehicle for the best results. The students will also participate in a question and answer session with the drivers, according to the auto show's schedule.(Xenia Gazette)(1-12-2015)

  • Logano getting married in the off season UPDATE: Next week, #22-Joey Logano and fiancée Brittany Baca will be married in North Carolina, with a trip to Costa Rica on tap for the honeymoon. "We're going to have some fun, but it's only going to be for about a week because I can't handle any longer than that," Logano, 24, said Thursday following the annual Myers Brothers Award luncheon. "She's like, 'Let's go for two weeks.' I said, 'How about five days?' So we kind of met in the middle -- a week. I can't sit still; I've got to go all the time. We'll enjoy it, it's going to be a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to the wedding -- we've got a lot of people going, a lot of people you haven't seen in a while, a lot of people from the race team." The plan, he said, is to "party our butts off." The wedding date is scheduled for Dec. 13, and was decided by Baca for a specific reason. Earlier this year, she told AL.com that the use of sequential numbers, 12/13/14, would make it easy for Logano to recall. "He has a busy enough life," she said. "I don't want to give him anything else to remember."(NASCAR.com)(12-8-2014)

  • Discount Tire renews with Team Penske: Team Penske announced that it has reached a multi-year extension with Discount Tire, the world's largest tire and wheel retailer, to continue as a key marketing partner with the team. Discount Tire will remain a primary sponsor of the #22 Team Penske Ford Mustang for at least 24 races in the NASCAR XFINITY Series and serve as an associate sponsor for both the #2 and #22 Ford Fusions in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. A long-time NASCAR supporter, Discount Tire established a successful relationship with Team Penske after joining forces for the 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series season. That year, the #22 Discount Tire team earned a series-record 26 top-five finishes en route to the NNS Championship with Brad Keselowski, which gave Roger Penske his first NASCAR title as a team owner. In 2013, Discount Tire and Team Penske continued their success together, earning the NNS Owners' Championship and 12 wins with four different drivers, including Keselowski, Joey Logano, Ryan Blaney and AJ Allmendinger. The production continued this season with the #22 Discount Tire Ford team once again claiming the 2014 NNS Owners' Championship with Keselowski, Logano, Blaney, Alex Tagliani and Michael McDowell sharing driving duties.(Team Penske)(11-19-2014)

  • Penske extends Logano's contract: Team Penske announced that it has signed multiple-race winner and 2014 NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup contender, Joey Logano, to a contract extension. Under the new multi-year agreement, Logano will continue behind the wheel of the #22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the #22 Discount Tire / Hertz Ford Mustang in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for Team Penske. "Joey Logano has been everything we hoped he would be, both as a driver and as a representative of our organization and for our partners," said Roger Penske. "He continues to put points on the board for us and the continuity and chemistry he has developed within the team has been terrific. We believe he can be a leader and championship-level driver for Team Penske for years to come." Already a seven-year NASCAR veteran, the 24-year-old has proven to be an elite driver. Throughout the course of his career, Logano has produced seven NSCS wins and 21 NNS victories. Since joining Team Penske at the start of the 2013 NASCAR season, Logano has enjoyed the best two-year stretch of his young career, earning five NSCS wins and three NNS victories. "I am fortunate and excited to be a part of Team Penske for the foreseeable future," said Logano, currently ranked second in the Chase standings after his victory last weekend at New Hampshire. "Mr. Penske gives us everything we need to keep our eye on the prize and compete for wins and championships. I think that is clear by the number of wins we have across the board this year. I'm fortunate to represent great companies like Ford, Shell-Pennzoil, AAA, AutoTrader.com, Discount Tire, Hertz and all of the great partners we have here at Team Penske. I think our best years are in front of us for sure."(Team Penske)(9-25-2014)

  • New sponsor for Joey Logano: AutoTrader.com will join Team Penske in 2014 with sponsorship of the #22 Ford Fusion and driver Joey Logano in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Under the terms of the multi-year agreement, AutoTrader.com will become a season-long associate sponsor on the #22 team and will also serve as the car's primary sponsor for the July 13 race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) with a special AutoTrader.com livery.
    AutoTrader.com has established a successful working relationship with Penske Automotive Group (PAG) over the last few years and that partnership has now blossomed to include the Team Penske NASCAR program. Through the relationship, AutoTrader.com will help build its brand with NASCAR fans and integrate Logano and Team Penske into its marketing programs.
    "We are thrilled to welcome AutoTrader.com to Team Penske and into our NASCAR racing program," said Roger Penske. "AutoTrader.com is one of the most popular online solutions for buying and selling new and used vehicles. Over the last several years we have developed an outstanding partnership with them through Penske Automotive Group, our automotive dealership business. We believe that this racing relationship will help build additional value for the AutoTrader.com brand."
    More than 17 million consumers visit AutoTrader.com each month to research their next vehicle purchase and browse the millions of new and used vehicles listed for sale. AutoTrader.com, the "ultimate automotive marketplace", offers a comprehensive suite of online and mobile tools to help make the car shopping process easier, including Trade-In Marketplace, Private Seller services, vehicle reviews, text alerts, expert advice and more.
    "We're pleased to take our relationship with Penske to the next level with this new NASCAR partnership," said John Kovac, senior vice president of Marketing for AutoTrader Group. "This is a very exciting opportunity for us, and we're looking forward to a thrilling season on the track connecting with NASCAR's loyal fans and cheering Joey Logano on to Victory Lane."
    AutoTrader.com's branding will be displayed on the rear quarter panel of the #22 Ford driven by Logano this season. Logano, who finished eighth in Sprint Cup Series points in 2013 after making his first Chase and collecting a win and two poles along the way, will also drive the #22 AutoTrader.com Ford Fusion in the July 13 race at NHMS.
    "I've already had the chance to meet with the folks from AutoTrader.com and they are really excited about getting involved with Team Penske and we are happy to have them on board," said the now 23-year-old Logano. "It will be great to have them on the car at New Hampshire, a place which is really special to me. It's my home track, where I saw my first Sprint Cup Series race as a kid, where I made my first start in the Cup Series and where I won my first race. So I'm really looking forward to that race in July and trying to get AutoTrader.com into Victory Lane."(Team Penske), see an image of the car on the #22 Team Schemes page.(2-13-2014)
