Team Penske owner Roger Penske couldn’t hide his delight after Joey Logano was crowned 2022 NASCAR Cup Series champion on Sunday.
It capped a great year for The Captain whose drivers claimed both the NASCAR and IndyCar Series titles.
Speaking about his team’s achievements this year, Penske said:
I think we’ve tried it for 31 years, so it’s about time.What a special weekend for us.
Penske took the opportunity to send prayers to his fellow team owner Joe Gibbs, whose son, Joe Gibbs Racing team co-owner and COO Coy Gobbs died on Saturday night.
I guess what I want to do is say a prayer for Joe Gibbs and his family for the loss he had. That certainly is more important than a win or a championship. I just want him to know we feel that as a team, I do personally, and our family.
Speaking about Joey Logano, Roger Penske said:
Joey did a great job. You’ve seen what he’s been able to do as he’s come on the team, and for us to have two championships in the same year, that’s what we’re here for. That’s the goal we have every year. I think we’ve been close, but we got it this year.
Penske also won the NTT IndyCar Series championship with Will Power in the No.12 Verizon 5G Chevrolet.
