Joey Logano won the Daytona 500 on Sunday for Team Penske. It was an important achievement not only for the youg 24 year old driver and for Team Penske, but it marked a clean sweep of the races at Daytona for Ford powered vehicles. In less than a month Ford won the Rolex 24 at Daytona, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Race, the NASCAR Xfinity Series race and finally the Daytona 500. Impressive to say the least!
“You get out there, the first time you’ve raced in a couple months. There’s a lot of anxiety, a lot of nerves before the race. To be able to pull that car into Victory Lane, see my team there, see my family and my friends. Everyone was here. It couldn’t be any better. It’s an amazing feeling.” Said Joey Logano after the race.
Roger Penske added: “To win this race at all is something special. Obviously the Indy 500 has meant a lot to me. As we’ve competed in NASCAR for so many years, come up short here.”
Joey Logano: “The switch over to Team Penske, the best move of my career. To be here, get teamed up with a great team, it was an opportunity for me to regroup, be who I wanted to be as an adult, not an 18-year-old kid anymore, go out there and work hard.”
“There’s one more cool story we overlooked. Ford won the Rolex 24, the Truck race, the XFINITY race, and the Cup race. I think that’s a pretty big deal for those guys. You deserve a high five or something.”
