Wiley X sponsored racer Joey Logano put another notch on what has been undoubtedly his strongest NASCAR season, driving his #22 Team Penske Ford to the checkered flag at Saturday night’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway, a challenging track that bills itself as the “world’s fastest half-mile.” Logano surged past Matt Kenseth (also a Team Wiley X driver) with 44 laps to go and held off challenges from second-place finisher (and Penske teammate) Brad Keselowski and Kenseth, who eventually finished third.
The 24-year-old budding superstar earned a slew of significant milestones on this night. The win marked Logano’s first victory at Bristol Motor Speedway, his third victory of the 2014 season, and the first time he has won more than one race in a season. The 2014 campaign has been so successful for Logano; he has already doubled his career victory total this year. Here’s another impressive statistic for the youngster’s meteoric rise – he is currently tied for the season lead in wins and has as many victories in 24 races as he had in 183 prior races entering 2014. Perhaps even more importantly, Logano has served notice to competitors
and racing fans worldwide that he will be a serious force to contend with as the Sprint Cup Chase for the Championship begins in two weeks.
“It’s been a thrill for us to watch Joey’s great season so far and experience his well earned rise to the top of the NASCAR rankings,” said Wiley X Co-Founder Myles Freeman, Jr. “He’s truly a rising star, both on the track and off. We’re honored to be supporting his racing efforts and proud to play some small role in his amazing run,” added Freeman.
