After winning two of the last four Cup Series races, Joey Logano — it can be fairly stated — is on a roll. But will it continue on Sunday at Sonoma, a track where he has three top fives but no wins in 12 starts? Logano is cautiously optimistic but far from overly confident.
“Fast cars win races, and it’s nice to have a fast car, but it seems like there are so many different things going on,” said Logano, who three weekends prior to winning last Sunday at World Wide Technology Raceway picked up his first win of 2022 at Darlington. “If you can just get yourself to the front, you have a chance no matter how fast your car is or not fast your car is. You have a chance if you are in the front. You just have to figure out a way to get there. It’s different for each track. I don’t think anyone has it figured out yet.”
Logano does, however, believe his No. 22 Team Penske group and Team Penske as an organization have progressed from the beginning of the season — at least at some places. “There’s just tracks that we’re pretty good at,” Logano said. “I think the tracks where you come out of the gas pedal, the cars are pretty good. Some of the tracks that you are in the throttle all the way around don’t seem to be our wheelhouse right now. It goes back and forth. I don’t know. … It’s just a razor’s edge where you’re good or not. It just goes back and forth quickly.”
