Editor’s note: This week, FOXSports.com will look at three reasons why each of the four drivers who will race for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship will win the title. Today is Joey Logano’s turn.
For the second time in three years, Joey Logano has advanced to the Championship Round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Here are three reasons he’ll win it all this time around.
Logano, crew chief Todd Gordon and Team Penske made the final round two years ago in the first time this format was used. They didn’t win then, but they learned a lot from the experience and will return this time smarter, stronger and better prepared. This isn’t a fluke that they’re back again. This team was built to win and is ready to win.
Logano is the only Ford driver left in the Chase. All of Team Penske’s focus and all of that of Ford Motor Co. will be focused on getting Logano a championship. Logano’s teammate Brad Keselowski has always been a huge supporter of Logano and will do anything he can to help Logano win a title.

Logano in coming off a win in Phoenix last Sunday, which by itself would have been good, but overall he’s been absolutely red-hot in recent weeks. In the last five races, Logano has two victories and finishes of second, third and ninth. That’s an average finish of 3.2 over five races. Logano is on fire. Don’t underestimate the power of momentum.
