Joey Logano Joining SRX Series for 2022 Season Finale and Providing a Likely Preview of Life After Cup Series
Joey Logano has raced to 29 career NASCAR Cup Series wins and one championship (2018) since he started running a full-time schedule in 2009. What makes those stats even more impressive is he’s done all that and he’s just 32 years old. Based on historical numbers, he’s still got around 10 quality years left in his career.
Whenever the Team Penske driver does exit the car for the last time, he’s got a future up in the broadcast booth. He’s moonlighted for the last few years with Fox’s Xfinity Series coverage and overall has received positive reviews. With the network’s portion of the NASCAR schedule over, Logano announced this week he will be returning to the booth for a final time in 2022 with CBS as a driver analyst for the season finale of the SRX Series.
Joey Logano becoming regular in broadcast booth
Joey Logano has regularly participated the last few years with Fox as a part of the network’s driver-only broadcast, where multiple Cup Series drivers are the on-air talent in the studio, broadcast booth, and on pit road during one Xfinity Series race each season.
However, the network has assisted Logano in taking his broadcast game to the next level the last couple of seasons, inviting him to participate multiple times each year in the booth alongside Adam Alexander and a variety of other drivers, including former teammate Brad Keselowski and current teammate Ryan Blaney.
Logano’s performance has been well received, as he has consistently displayed an ability to provide insightful information to the audience and do so in an entertaining manner, which often includes his quirky sense of humor.
Joey Logano joining SRX broadcast for season finale
This past week the 2018 Cup champion announced on Twitter that his broadcast work for 2022 isn’t over and he will be working with the CBS Sports team and Allen Bestwick up in the booth in the final race of SRX’s second season at Sharon Speedway in Ohio.
“Hey everyone, I am so excited to announce I am joining the CBS Sports team as a driver analyst for the SRX Racing Series,” he said in a Twitter video. “It’s the championship race on Saturday, July 23. Make sure you tune into CBS and Paramount Plus at 8PM to see who will be crowned the SRX champion.”
Penske teammate Ryan Blaney racing SRX
While it will be entertaining watching Logano offer his analysis during the SRX race, it will be made even more interesting because of one specific participant in the race. Logano’s Team Penske teammate and part-time broadcast partner Ryan Blaney will be competing in the race with his father Dave.
“Very excited to be racing with my father @BuckeyeBullet10 in the @SRXracing finale at @SharonSpdwy, a place that has meant so much to my family,” Blaney tweeted back in March after his participation was announced.
Logano and Blaney have had more than a few humorous moments in the booth this season during their multiple stints. If the veteran driver stays true to his on-air form, fans should expect to hear more of the same with a couple of remarks at his teammate’s expense thrown in for good measure.
