In 2018, Joey Logano clinched a momentous victory at the GEICO 500 race in Talladega, a win that also marked his inaugural Cup Series championship win. However, the excitement of his achievement was met with an unexpected twist upon receiving the trophy. Upon inspection, Logano noticed a spelling error: his name was spelled incorrectly as “LAGANO” instead of “LOGANO.”

In a recent video shared on social media, Logano revealed this flaw with the trophy. He humorously explained that Penske, the team he races for, keeps the original trophy, while he receives a replica. Due to moving, he had kept the replica wrapped up to prevent any damage. But when he finally opened it, he discovered the misspelling.

Logano heard saying in the recent video on X, “So maybe I can win another one, and they can spell my name right this time.” It seems like this trophy mishap has become an extra motivation for him to aim for victory in this year’s Talladega race.

Joey Logano and his team employ a technique known as “lifting and coasting.” During certain portions of the race, they lift off the throttle and coast, conserving fuel. This approach allows them to maintain competitive lap times while using less fuel. By timing these maneuvers strategically, Logano can save precious gallons of fuel over the course of a race.

As NASCAR heads to the Talladega Superspeedway, Logano anticipates employing fuel-saving tactics once again. The 2.66-mile oval track presents unique challenges, including high speeds, tight drafting packs, and the need for strategic planning.

Logano’s confidence stems from the strong performance of Team Penske’s Fords on drafting tracks. In the first two superspeedway races of the season at Daytona and Atlanta, Logano consistently ran up front however couldn’t finish better. Now, at Talladega, he aims to capitalize on his team’s strength and secure another victory.
