Joey Logano Won’t Be Satisfied With Daytona 500 Victory

The Daytona 500 is considered a race by which a driver is measured. So Joey Logano has plenty about which to feel proud.

After all, Logano has compiled six top-10 finishes at Daytona. Last year, though, he finished 26th, his worst finish since 2009.

Either way, he told the Arizona Republic that even finishing first this year won’t be enough.

“No, because it’ll mean I’ve won two and I’ll want three,” Logano said. “Yeah, I’m not satisfied. Like, it’s never enough. I know in life saying ‘it’s never enough’ is not a healthy thing, but in sports, I think it’s the healthiest thing you can have. Saying, ‘Where is there more? Where is there more?’ I think that’s what’s kept our consistency there.”

Logano won his 25th Cup race in March at Phoenix Raceway. That made him just one of four drivers to have won 25 premier series races younger than the age of 30, joining Richard Petty, Jeff Gordon and Kyle Busch.

“It’s definitely a neat stat to have,” he said. “But at the same time, I’ll always say, ‘Not enough. Not enough. Not enough wins. Yeah, 25 wins is great, but the other way I look at it is, it’s only 25? I don’t know, I guess it’s just the competitor in you sometimes that you just always want more, always think you can have more.”
