1. Joey Logano Is Still a Top Driver

For those who doubted the 22 team and their driver, Joey Logano proved all the doubters wrong at Michigan.

Not only did he dominate by leading the most laps, he won the pole and the race. Logano proved that he is still one of NASCAR’s best drivers and that the 22 team can still compete at the highest level in the sport.

The race at Michigan not only showed just how good of a driver Logano is, but also how good the team around him is. With flawless pit stops and decisions that let him rise above the fuel mileage game, Logano had everything he needed to hold the lead as the race started to come to an end.

Now both Penske drivers are in the Chase and are making Ford a relevant manufacturer in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

With a win in the All-Star race and now at Michigan, Look for Logano and the 22 team to only improve as the season continues to move forward.
