    Past five seasons:

    Joey Logano: 18 wins - 77 top 5s - 119 top 10s - 11.3 avg finish
    Kyle Busch: 23 wins - 74 top 5s - 106 top 10s - 11.9 avg finish

    Joey is also five years younger. Looks like the GOAT needs to step up his game.

    Kevin Harvick: 22 wins - 91 top 5s - 127 top 10s - 10.28 avg finish

    Literally nobody thinks he’s the goat. From a pure talent standpoint he might be but that’s it. Also the idea that 5 more wins is meaningless is funny because this forums golden child has FIVE CAREER WINS yet everyone wants to have his kids lol

    I didn't think there was any chance that somebody would respond that way. Yes, I did. Hope you didn't spend too much time on that.

    About as long as the GOAT held the lead on the final restart last Sunday.

    That's a no brainer for me, it's Kyle Busch for sure...But, that's only because he has access to an unlimited supply of free M&M"s...and I love M&M"s.:)

    Joey for sure. Both top drivers.. Joey brings some more longevity.

    Compare records when both drivers were Joey’s age.

    Impossible to compare because they have different teams, Crew C, Car C and manufacturers.
     
  22. BobbyFord

    BobbyFord Resident Gearhead Contributor

    And different levels of ability. That’s what makes it most difficult.

    I think he brings more confidence into next year after the year he had. He's another one that I think is going to benefit from the package next year, he is really good with the restarts.
     
  24. SlicedBread22

    SlicedBread22 #TeamJL

    Oh absolutely.. I wouldn't be surprised to see him be the driver to beat with this next package. He's arguably the best driver on plate tracks and on restarts. Both of those traits will be magnified under the new rules.

    There's one driver that I can say might be as good or better than Joey in both those categories.. Brad on plate tracks and Kyle on restarts.. u can laugh all u want that doesn't change the fact.

    I think the new package also brings JJ back into the picture. Maybe that is what Nascar is looking for, the first time "8Time".:D

    In that period of time, Kyle also raced in 11 less races.

    Well, Kyle has been racing about four years longer, and Joey didn’t start winning until he got on a team that fits him. I’m not saying Joey is better, just Kyle has had a little more time to get wins. From the time they hare raced each other(since 2009), Kyle only has 19 more wins than Joey. We’ll see how much that changes over the next few years.

    Interesting that Logano has only led 1,000 laps in a season once, while Kyle has done it 9 times

    Keep in mind that Logano had to endure his early career as a team mate to Kyle and Denny.
    I wonder how Martin is going to get along now that they can control his information.

    Logano raced with Gibbs 4 full seasons. He's been at Penske 6 and still only led 1,000 laps in a season once

    ..and? Since when does leading laps really matter.. more often than not the lap leader doesnt win and we don't look back on a career based on how many laps they led.. wins and championships are what really matter.
