DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Team Penske has locked up a major portion of its NASCAR program by signing driver Joey Logano, crew chief Todd Gordon and sponsor Shell-Pennzoil to extensions that run through "2022 and beyond."
The phrasing of the new contracts announced Friday at Daytona International Speedway is a play on Logano's car No. 22. His existing contract ran through 2018, and the extension is believed to be a five-year deal through 2023.
"This was one of those decisions that was a no-brainer," Logano said. "When you're able to find yourself in an amazing opportunity with a lot of winners around you, that's great. ... I want to be with people who want to win as bad as me."
