A Team Penske Sweep of the Toyota Owners 400 – Joey Logano From Last to First

Richmond, VA – From last to first, is exactly what Joey Logano did this Sunday at Richmond International Raceway, after starting shotgun on the field after a transmission change after qualifying. The call to replace the transmission came from crew chief Todd Gordon late Saturday afternoon when debris was found in the transmission of the Shell-Pennzoil Ford.

A caution early in the race on lap five was just what Todd Gordon and the #22 team needed as it allowed them to come down pit road for fresh tires. Which ultimately allowed Joey to pick his way through the field much easier.

“I got a text yesterday from Todd while I was up in the booth and was just like aw man,” Logano said about the debris found in the transmission. “This is not the place you want to start in the back for a lot of reasons. For one, you have five or six laps on your tires from qualifying. Two, for being a short track you have to go hard on a short run to try and not go down a lap and hope for a caution and that worked out really well. We got a nice caution five laps in the race and put some sticker tires on it when some still had their qualifiers on.”

From that point on it was one car at a time for Logano as the strategy early this morning was to run about 80% at the start of the race. The plan seemed to work out pretty well because Logano found himself inside the top ten at the completion of both 100-lap segments collecting two additional playoff points.

“We picked them off slowly,” Logano went on to explain. “Took us forever to get into the top five. It seemed like everyone from fourth to tenth had the same speed so it was all about gaining position on restarts and pit stops.”

A few late cautions and great calls from the top of the #22 pit box helped gain very important track position giving every opportunity to Joey to get the win. Logano was able to retake the lead shortly after the final restart of the race getting by Kyle Larson with a little bump out of three.

“Some good calls there at the end got us some track position,” Logano said. “We had a good pit stop at the end that got us some good track position that maintained the track position. A good restart that helped us get the lead back when everyone else stayed out on old tires and we just tried to check out. It wasn’t a save your tires and don’t get too big of a lead, it was a go as hard as you possibly can because I knew how fast Brad was. He was the fastest car and lead a ton of laps today. Glad the race was 400-laps,” Logano said. “If it was any shorter we probably wouldn’t have won. If it was any longer, we probably wouldn’t have won.”

The win was Logano’s first of 2017 and 18th of his career which came in his 300th start. Making him just the fifth driver in history to win in his 300th career start. Putting him in the company of Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, Kasey Kahne, and Rusty Wallace.

At the drop of the green flag, it appeared that it was going to be the Matt Kenseth show. Kenseth set a blistering pace early in the race, leading a race-high 164 laps, to win the first segment and over half of the second. Kenseth said at the segment break the car still needed some work and he hadn’t run too much in traffic yet – which may have been his Achilles heel this weekend. The pass for the lead came as the leaders approached heavy lap traffic. Keselowski made the move on the high side and never looked back.

Denny Hamlin, who was spectacular all day on pit road, along with Kevin Harvick, made it tough for Keselowski though as the race continued. Leading the second most laps of the day, 110 to be exact, it looked like the two-car was poised to win the race. Restart after restart, Keselowski found his way back to the front of the field. However, the late race cautions seemed to not help with the strategy from the Detroit Genuine Parts Ford pit box – who was as far back as fifth with fifteen laps to go.

“That’s just how things fall with these double-file restarts,” Keselowski explained in the media center following the race. “We got behind some of these guys that I think I lapped at least six times today. I think the fact that it was a day race makes this track change drastically. I know I was hot all day but some of the best races are in the day.”

The Team Penske front row sweep was the second of the weekend as Simon Pagenuad & Will Power finish one-two Saturday out in Phoenix in the Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix Grand Prix.

NASCAR will head south to the 2.66-mile monster that is Talladega.

Kyle Larson Wins Toyota Care 250 in Overtime at Richmond over Justin Allgaier

Richmond, VA – Kyle Larson only leads 10 laps en route to the victory at in the Toyota Care 250.

Richmond, Va – We have preached this on our platform many times and it has been said much more in this sport, the fastest car does not always win the race. That was the case for the 2017 Toyota Care 250 at Richmond International Raceway. Leading the second least laps of the day Kyle Larson found himself in victory lane after a thrilling but somewhat confusing overtime finish.

“I was happy to see them all wreck because I didn’t want to have to race a whole other lap with Justin behind me because he had the dominant car,” Larson said after the victory. “Good solid race for us. Didn’t expect to be the winner and we ran a lot better than I thought we would.”

The Monster Energy Cup Series points leader holding himself to a much higher standard as the Credit One Bank driver finished all three stages of today’s 250-lap race within the top ten and of course winning the most important one. Showing speed early in the race, Larson seemed to be quite content running the bottom groove and running laps off the board.

Larson almost got caught in a sticky situation early on in the race coming off turn two when he had to back off the throttle to avoid being a sheet metal sandwich and ending his day early. Luckily for Larson, he was able to keep his nose clear and give a car to his crew to work on all day.

As the race progressed, pretty mildly if I might add, it appeared that Justin Allgaier was going to just walk away with not only the race win but his second Dash 4 Cash victory especially after a power move around Larson on the outside to start the second stage. Things got strung out pretty quick and it was just focusing on keeping the car and tires under him dealing with one of the slickest tracks in recent years.

Things did tend to get dicey and had race fans on the edge of their seats with two restarts with just twelve laps to go set up some wild racing throughout the field. Ty Dillion was the control car for one of the late restarts but, did not last long as he was black flagged on the ensuing caution for jumping the start.

The race witnessed the Richmond version of the Big One on the following restart as several cars, including William Byron, who entered the race second in points, as well as the outside pole sitter Kyler Benjamin, who was making his Xfinity series debut. Needless to say, it ended a great run for both drivers.

This set up the final restart of the race in overtime with Kyle Larson and Justin Allgaier on the front row. When the green was displayed Allgaier got on the gas a little too hard and spun the tires going down the front stretch, which gave Larson the slight advantage. It was a drag race down the backstretch before Ryan Reid looked to get a little assistance from Cole Custer in wrecking into the inside retaining wall. By the time the Caution was displayed the cars had made it over the overtime line going into three making the race official.

Catching up with Kyle after the race he was pretty honest in admitting that he didn’t have the best car today. It was almost as if the planets aligned perfectly when Ty Dillion was assessed the penalty handing the lead of the race over the Larson. This way he would be able to control the start of the race.

“Justin (Allgaier) got a really good start in the top lane,” Larson commented. “I thought he was going to spin his tires a little worse than he did and make it a littler easier for me through one and two but, he was able to hang on my right side through one. We were able to clear him out of two and I guess that’s when they started crashing behind us. We had to race to the overtime line and as soon as we got the caution in three and four I knew I got the win.”

Admitting that he has never been that good here at Richmond, Larson was happy to get the win and to get it with Credit One Bank on the car. He also stated that he was able to learn a few things and discipline himself for tomorrow’s Toyota Owners 400.

“Richmond is a track I know I struggle at,” Larson explained. “I know I just won I still struggle here a lot. I was still able to learn a lot for tomorrow and disciplined myself to run the bottom, I feel like it helped me for the long run. Overall it was great to get a win at a track that I don’t run well at, it was a confidence booster.”

With Richmond switching back to day racing for the first time in eighteen years the drivers had to be up on the wheel all 250-laps as ambient temps were in the mid 80’s all day which created a very slick racing surface.

“The track was really hot and slick,” Larson commented about the track conditions. “I was roasting all day. Pretty wore out right and super hot. I have been dumping water on me since the end of the race and still really hot. Going to have rehydrated tonight and get ready for tomorrow’s race because it’s going to be even hotter and a lot longer race.”

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (October 26, 2016) – In an announcement that will put an even brighter spotlight on the next generation of stars and bolster the identity of all three of its national series, NASCAR announced on Wednesday driver participation guidelines for the 2017 season. The new guidelines limit the number of events a premier series driver can race in the NASCAR XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Starting next season, premier series drivers with more than five years of full-time experience will be eligible to compete in a maximum of 10 races in the XFINITY Series and seven races in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Additionally, drivers with more than five years of full-time premier series experience will be ineligible to compete in the final eight races in each series, as well as the Dash 4 Cash races in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. The final eight races are comprised of the regular season finale and the entirety of the Chase in each series.

Drivers earning premier series points in 2017 also are not eligible to compete in the 2017 NASCAR XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship Races at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

“The updated guidelines will elevate the stature of our future stars, while also providing them the opportunity to compete against the best in professional motorsports,” said Jim Cassidy, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. “These updated guidelines are the result of a collaborative effort involving the entire industry, and will ultimately better showcase the emerging stars of NASCAR.”

Drivers with more than five years of full-time experience in the premier series still can run for an XFINITY Series or Camping World Truck Series championship, provided they have declared for championship points in the respective series.

Wednesday’s announcement signals the next step in NASCAR’s driver participation guideline evolution. Prior to the 2016 season, NASCAR announced that members of the 2015 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup field would be ineligible to compete in the 2016 Championship Race in both the NASCAR XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. In 2011, NASCAR implemented a rule requiring drivers to select one of the three national series in which to collect championship points.
