HOUSTON Joey Logano, driver of the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion, took the checkered flag with Pennzoil technology under the hood on Sunday, which will pay off for Shell $aver Cardholders. The win at Michigan International Speedway (MIS) is the first 2013 points race victory for the Shell-Pennzoil team, which means Shell Saver Cardholders can save at the pump this Wednesday, Aug. 21, as part of the WINsdays promotion.
It was also Logano’s first win at Michigan and first NASCAR Sprint Cup win for Penske Racing. He became the youngest winner in MIS history by saving enough fuel and taking the lead after a final restart with three laps to go.
Throughout the season, Shell engineers work closely with the technical team at Penske Racing to develop Pennzoil motor oil formulations to help maximize performance, efficiency and engine reliability with each adjustment contributing to the advancement of the brand’s technology.
"Racing oils are one of the few areas of a stock car that can be changed and tweaked race to race. Having access to Pennzoil’s knowledge and technology helps to keep our engines clean and maximizes the most performance out of them possible, giving us an advantage over our competition," said Travis Geisler, director of competition at Penske Racing.
There are 13 more points races remaining in the 2013 season, giving existing and new Shell Saver Cardholders 13 more chances to win.
In February, Shell and Penske announced the return of the popular WINsday promotion for a third consecutive year. The Wednesday after any win by the No. 22 Ford Fusion in a points race is now known as WINsday because Shell Saver Cardholders can use their card to purchase Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines or Shell Diesel and save 22 cents per gallon, up to 25 gallons of fuel.
And, to celebrate the national launch of the Fuel Rewards Network (FRN) program, current Shell Saver Cardholders also will have the opportunity to earn a 22 cents-per-gallon savings that will automatically be pre-loaded on their FRN Card for each No. 22 team victory. This is in addition to their Shell $aver Card savings.
