2019 Preview: Team Penske

They may call him "The Captain," but Roger Penske is enjoying the king's life as a NASCAR owner. Joey Logano is a champion, his other two drivers are contenders, and his manufacturer- Ford- is currently top dog as a NASCAR nameplate. Times are good for Team Penske. Say what you will about Joey Logano, his dad, or his "rich kid" rep, he's a champion, and no one can take that away from him. So much for that big three talk. When the final checkered flag flew at Homestead-Miami, it was the 22 ...

He should have been among the very first, with all apologies to some who got in ahea ...

2018 Team Preview: Team Penske Expands

For the first time in several seasons, the number 12 will run for Team Penske. After a solid start with the Wood Bros., Ryan Blaney will join a stable that already includes Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano. There once was a time when Roush Racing was the class of the field for Ford. Since switching over from Dodge, Team Penske is now the standard bear for the Blue Oval, with all apologies to Stewart-Haas, who didn't fare poorly after leaving Chevrolet. Roger Penske has long been known as " ...

Others aren’t as fond. I can’t fathom how a fan would think Sunday’s race at Watkins Glen wasn’t worth their time. Here’s a look at winners and losers from the final road race (sadly) of the 2015 Sprint Cup season. (more…) ...
