He is currently second in the points standings, 46 points ahead of ninth-placed Carson Hossevar.
Logano is looking for his fourth career Kansas victory
Joey Logano will be looking for his fourth career win at Kansas Speedway this weekend, which would be a personal best. Logano currently has three career wins at Kansas, Michigan International Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway. In the year He won for the first time in Kansas in 2014, and again a year later in a well-documented battle with Matt Kenseth as the two went one-on-one in five rounds. That controversial finish marked Logano’s second straight win in the Chase and swept the race the following week when he took the checkered flag at Talladega. His last Kansas victory came in 2020 when he led the final 45 laps, beating Kevin Harvick at the finish line and taking a spot in the Championship.
