MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Penske Racing announced Tuesday that Joey Logano will join the team in 2013 and drive the No. 22 Ford in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
The 22-year-old Logano is a two time Cup Series winner in his fourth full season. He is leaving Joe Gibbs Racing for the seat that opened when AJ Allmendinger was released after a failed drug test.
Logano was also the youngest winner in Nationwide Series history when he won at Kentucky at the age of 18 in 2008. A year later, he won at New Hampshire to become the youngest winner ever in Cup Series competition. He was the 2009 Sprint Cup Series rookie of the year.
