The NASCAR Cup Series begins its stretch of three-consecutive races in the Carolinas, beginning with this weekend's Goodyear 400 at Darlington Raceway. Team Penske has four Cup Series victories all-time at the 1.336-mile oval with Joey Logano's 2022 spring win serving as the organization's latest at 'The Lady In Black.'

Joey Logano: 14th

Ryan Blaney: 17th

Austin Cindric: 25th

HEAR FROM LOGANO: "I felt like we had decent pace in practice, just not enough to push us into the second round of qualifying so there's still a bit to work on there. We'll see where we stack up in terms of race pace tomorrow - 400 miles around here gives us a chance to work on some things throughout the day."

RETURNING TO DARLINGTON: Logano's 2022 win in the spring race at Darlington marked his fifth-career Cup Series victory from the pole while leading a career-high 107 laps. Logano enters the weekend as one of five active drivers with at least 10 top-10 finishes at the iconic South Carolina venue. Ryan Blaney comes into Sunday with 9th-place finishes in each of his last two starts at Darlington.
