Joey Logano is a rising star in the racing industry. He was born in Middletown, Connecticut, on May 24, 1990. Joey Logano grew up to be an American Professional Stock Car Racing Driver. He competes full time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, driving his No. 22 Ford Fusion for Team Penske and part-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series driving his Ford Mustang. Logano has won many Cup Series including ones that took place on the New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Pocono Raceway, Michigan International Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, and more. In 2015, he became the second Youngest Daytona 500 Champion. Between 2014-2015, he won more races than any other racer in the NASCAR Cup Series. His net worth is $18 million and he earned it by working with team Penske and Sprint Cup Series Career. Logano is said to be 6 ft 1 in. Wow! Imagine being that tall and having to fit into cars all day.

On Sunday, February 23, 2020, Joey Logano won the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway by defeating Matt DiBenedetto. He won a two-lap sprint to the finish that ended under caution. This happened after a wreck unfolded right as the field took the white flag. At first, Logano came out on top in what was supposed to be a two-lap shootout after he stayed out of the pits due to a warning from not understanding his crew chief’s instructions to pit. His new crew chief (Todd Gordon) said, “I should have left you out. My gut told me to. I didn’t. My bad.” This would be Logano’s second straight win in the race and it’s also his first win with a new crew chief, Paul Wolfe. The race was their second together after an off-season crew chief swap by Team Penske. The race led to a 22-race winless streak for Joey Logano. He added, “Man, nothing like winning the Pennzoil 400 in front of this amazing crowd with this awesome yellow car right here in the front. Man, this is a huge win, and nice to kick off the season with a win.” Logano raced with his No. 22 Ford and DiBenedetto raced with his No. 21 Ford and each were on 50-lap tires towards the end.
