Joey Logano looking to be ‘competitive’ in Phoenix
Defending March Phoenix Cup Series race-winner Joey Logano expects to be competitive in Sunday’s Instacart 500 at Phoenix Raceway.
“We’ve been close to a few victories already, so I feel like you look at on the road course, the Daytona 500 we were really close to winning those races,” Logano said. “We had a struggle in Miami. We had a mediocre day at Vegas, and I think we’ve learned something at each one of those racetracks so far.
“I think that we’re gonna be competitive. I’d like to think that. It’s been a great racetrack for us.”
Through the first four races, Logano has posted one Top-5 finish, 2 Top-10 finishes, has led laps in every event with 55 total laps led, and ranks sixth-place overall in points.
Logano, a two-time winner at the Arizona track, will start in ninth-place Sunday.
“Phoenix is just a fun track,” Logano said. “It’s one of those tracks that has a decent amount of speed, but is still considered a short track, and then you have the PJ1 that they put down on the track that is a little bit unpredictable, depending on how it’s laid down and we’ll figure that out as we get there.”
The Instacart 500 will be televised on Sunday, Mar. 14 on FOX (3:30 p.m. ET).
