Joey Logano Lands Contract Extension with Penske

Joey Logano won’t be leaving Team Penske anytime in the near future.

Team Penske announced on Thursday that they have signed the 24-year-old Logano to a multi-year contract extension.

No details about the contract were disclosed.

Logano is enjoying a breakout season in 2014 with a career high four wins and is currently in second place behind his Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski in the Chase for the Sprint Cup standings heading into this week’s AAA 400 at the Dover International Speedway.  He will continue to be onboard the No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford and will drive for the organization in select Nationwide Series races beyond next season.

“Joey Logano has been everything we hoped he would be, both as a driver and as a representative of our organization and for our partners,” team owner Roger Penske said in a statement released by the team. “He continues to put points on the board for us and the continuity and chemistry he has developed within the team has been terrific. We believe he can be a leader and championship-level driver for Team Penske for years to come.”

Logano has scored seven career victories in the Sprint Cup Serie,s with five of those wins coming at Team Penske. His most recent was in last weekend’s Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Logano said he is excited about what the future holds within the Penske organization.

“I am fortunate and excited to be a part of Team Penske for the foreseeable future,” said Logano. “Mr. Penske gives us everything we need to keep our eye on the prize and compete for wins and championships. I think that is clear by the number of wins we have across the board this year. I’m fortunate to represent great companies like Ford, Shell-Pennzoil, AAA, AutoTrader.com, Discount Tire, Hertz and all of the great partners we have here at Team Penske. I think our best years are in front of us for sure.”
