Much of a driver’s success is attributed to his team, but Joey Logano has been able to find Victory Lane the last four consecutive series races at Dover for two different organizations.
Logano began his winning spree at Dover the spring of 2012 while driving for Joe Gibbs Racing. He swept both races that season then backed it up last season with Team Penske again sweeping both events. A fifth straight victory on Saturday would tie a record for consecutive wins at a track, currently held by NASCAR Hall of Famers Jack Ingram (South Boston) and Dale Earnhardt (Daytona), and Kyle Busch (Texas).
Supremacy is an understatement when referring to Logano at Dover. He leads the series in pre-race Driver Rating (124.9) and Average Running Position (5.4). In 10 starts he has posted four wins, six top fives, seven top 10s and three Coors Light poles at the one-mile track.
Logano could be the catalyst to close the points deficit between first and second in the owner standings. Roger Penske’s No. 22 team is currently second in the owner standings, 42 points behind Joe Gibbs’ No. 54 team. But Logano will have work cut out for him; Kyle Busch is slated to drive the No. 54 this week. Busch swept both series races at Dover in 2010.
