Joey Logano Unmasks the NASCAR Issue

During the AutoTrader EchoPark Automotive 400, Logano discussed a potential fix to enhance the racetrack’s performance. He pointed out that the resin PJ1, which was applied to the track surface years ago, still remains. This resin makes the outside racing line extremely slick, preventing drivers from utilizing it effectively. Logano’s frustration is shared by many in the racing community.

Logano described the compound as “sticky” and emphasized that it collects dust, rubber debris, and other particles from the air. When cars venture onto the compound under caution, it feels like driving on ice initially. Only after the heat activates it—thanks to exhaust fumes and tire friction—does it provide traction. However, this unpredictability makes it challenging for drivers to confidently use the higher racing groove. Logano believes that removing this compound would improve racing at Texas Motor Speedway.
