In celebration of the No. 22 Hertz Ford Mustang's win at Dover International Speedway, driven by Joey Logano,
(NYSE: HTZ) is offering NASCAR Race Fans
off their next weekly rental with Hertz. Coming in first place, this is Logano's third-consecutive win at the Monster Mile in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and his first Nationwide Series win driving for Penske Racing.
"Joey is extremely passionate with his driving and has shown his prowess at Dover in the past," commented
Mark P. Frissora
, Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "At Hertz we value such passion and strive to deliver it to each and every customer, just like Joey did this weekend and we're pleased to offer race fans a special discount in honor of the team's win."
Logano took the lead for the final time following a two-tire pit stop with just 36 laps to go. Over the final run, Logano was able to pull away from the field, earning his first Nationwide Series win of the season. It was Logano's 19
-career Nationwide Series victory and the 199
series victory for Ford Racing.
"It was great to drive the No. 22 Hertz Ford Mustang this weekend and I'm excited to win Dover again," commented Penske driver Joey Logano. "Our winning wouldn't have been possible without the work and dedication of the entire team and it was great that, together, we were all able to keep the No. 22 Hertz Ford Mustang traveling at the speed of Hertz."
This is the third consecutive win at Dover for Logano. Logano won both races at the high-banked, mile-long track last season, leading 338 of the 400 laps. On Saturday afternoon, Logano led 66 of the 200 laps. Since making his season - and Penske Racing - debut in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at Talladega Superspeedway, Logano has racked up strong finishes behind the wheel of the No. 22 Ford Mustang and has helped move the No. 22 up in the Owner's Standings from sixth to third since he took over the ride.
