Joey Logano to race in DuPont Pioneer 250
Iowa Speedway officials announced Tuesday that NASCAR Sprint Cup star Joey Logano, who won the Newton track’s first-ever NASCAR race in May of 2007 at 16 years of age, will drive a Penske Ford Mustang in the track’s first Nationwide Series race of the season, the DuPont Pioneer 250 on Saturday evening, June 8.
Logano, now 22 and in his fifth full season of Sprint Cup Series racing, is perhaps best known as the youngest race winner ever in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series. But to Iowa race fans, he is also known as the kid from Connecticut who beat Kevin Harvick in Iowa Speedway’s inaugural NASCAR K&N Pro Series East vs. West challenge race on May 18, 2007.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Joey Logano back racing with us again,” said Iowa Speedway president Stan Clement. “Joey’s outspoken, ‘take no prisoners’ style will add a lot of excitement to the race for our fans, and you can bet he’ll be coming to Newton with one thing in mind — winning the DuPont Pioneer 250 on June 8.”
