Joey Logano Scores Thrilling Victory At Phoenix
Powered by Shell technology under the hood no. 22 shell-Pennzoil ford fusion uses special formulation of Pennzoil racing oil developed by shell scientists in partnership with team Penske to maximize performance and engine reliability
Joey Logano and the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion race team drove to victory lane at Phoenix International Raceway at the Can-Am 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) race and punched his ticket to the Championship Four at Homestead-Miami Speedway next week. Logano, starting in the 4th position and powered by PurePlus™ Technology under the hood, narrowly avoided a first lap scrape and a mad scramble towards the end to eventually take the checkered flag.
“It was incredible,” said Logano following the win. “What a fun race. That last restart was crazy. Everyone was racing for a championship. This wasn’t just a race. This was for a shot at the championship next week. The 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford is going there and we have a hell of a shot at it. I couldn’t be more proud of the team executing today under pressure.”
This weekend’s win was the 17th of Logano’s career and third victory of 2016. He will now compete in the Championship Four for the second time in three years and is one of four drivers who can win the 2016 NSCS championship. The next race on the NASCAR Sprint Cup NSCS schedule is the final race of the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday, November 20th.
“What a great win for Joey!” said Vatsal Shah, General Manager of Lubricants Technology. “Shell and Pennzoil scientists work hand-in-hand with Team Penske year-round to optimize the special formulation of Pennzoil racing oil that Logano uses in the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion and help maximize performance and engine reliability. All of that work at the track, and the knowledge gained, helps us to develop the next generation of high quality products for our customers. We’re thrilled that Joey and Team Penske are headed to the championship next week!”
The Pennzoil racing oil in the No. 22 car is formulated using PurePlus™ Technology, a revolutionary process that converts natural gas into a first-of-its-kind, high quality full synthetic base oil. This pure, clear PurePlus base oil has fewer of the impurities found in traditional base oils made from crude oil, allowing it to fully enhance the benefits of the additives in Pennzoil Platinum and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic motor oils. In addition to blending a unique formulation for the Ford engine from week-to-week, Shell and Pennzoil scientists also tailor high performance lubricants for the Team Penske gearbox.
