Biography

Joey Logano will compete in his 14th NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) season in 2021, and his ninth year racing for Team Penske, with his sights set on winning his second NCS championship. In 2020, Logano became only the fourth driver in NASCAR history to win 25 NCS races before the age of 30. With 26 career wins entering the 2021 season, Logano is tied NASCAR Hall of Fame drivers Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Fred Lorenzen on the all-time wins list.

Logano produced another strong season in 2020, as he and the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil/AAA/Autotrader/MoneyLion Ford Mustang team scored three wins, 12 top-five and 21 top-10 finishes. In just the second race of the 2020 season, Logano scored his second consecutive victory in the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to once again qualify for the NASCAR Playoffs.  He went on to notch a win at Phoenix Raceway in the spring, and a playoff victory at Kansas Speedway in the opening race of the Round of 8, to earn a spot in the Championship 4 season finale for the fourth time in the last seven seasons.

After a successful first season working together in 2020, Logano will again be paired with NCS Championship-winning crew chief Paul Wolfe, who’s entering his 11th season with Team Penske. Wolfe, Logano and everyone on the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil/AAA/Autotrader/MoneyLion Ford Mustang team will be working hard in 2021 to make a return trip to the postseason and try to claim Team Penske’s third NCS championship.

The No. 22 crew hopes to build on its momentum in 2021 with a new notebook following an unusual maiden season together that saw practice and qualifying eliminated due to COVID-19 restrictions. Despite the challenges in 2020, the team was riding high entering the Championship race at Phoenix and early on it looked to be on a path to the title. Logano and the Shell-Pennzoil Ford Mustang dominated the opening stage and led 125 laps before eventually finishing third in the race and in the season point standings. The allure of getting so close to the title has the No. 22 team even more motivated to meet its goals in 2021.
