    Might as well throw one of these up...You knew it was only a matter of time ;)

    I know most of you don't like him for whatever reason, but you have to admit Joey had a great season. Better than most expected (even myself). Was in contention for many(at least 5) wins, finished top 10 in more than half the season.. with(I think) the 3rd highest amount of top 5's in the series. Made the chase and finished 8th in the final standings.

    I think he's shown he can run up front, needs to be a bit more consistent and minimize mistakes on pit road.

    I think "Sliced Bread" is finally coming into his own as a cup driver.

    Im not even going to go all fan boy here but I seriously think he'll probably get 3 wins next season and make the chase again. Finishing probably around the same spot in the standings.. maybe a couple spots better.

    They need to work on their flat track program.. Martinsville, Phoenix, New Hampshire, Richmond... some of the only tracks he didn't run well at.

    I see no reason to think he won't be a contender within the next couple years if they can minimize mistakes and get a little better on the flat tracks.

    On the flip side, the 1.5's and 2 mile tracks have blown my expectations away for that team. They were one of the best all year on this track type.. I think he only finished outside the top 5 in 4 or 5 races on this track type.


    Sooo.... without going all SlicedBread22 hater on me... what do you guys think of Joey for 2014?



    Also.. for those of you who had to endure my early season rants.. You have to admit this is a big improvement lol.. This forum has made me more of a racing fan than a Joey fan. I'll always be just as big a fan but just somewhat humbler... Don't make me go all fan boy on ur asses :p ;)


    :cheers:

    You pulled it off topic and by the way this is the off season and things are a little more lax. I think you are mentoring him in annoyance and bringing him along slowly. :booya:

    JLo had a good season. Kenseth had a great season.

    JLo in 14? Will likely have a better season.

    By the way, Kyle Larson is the new Sliced Bread.

    I think Logano's '14 will be a lot like his '13. If anything that 22 team will be even stronger with another year together under their belt. I'm more curious to see how the 2 rebounds from a pretty average year.

    Even I think thats a stupid song lol... although when Joey won I chanted "Joey... Joey... Joey.. Joey..." at my dad lol he didn't like that too much.
     
  15. I think that 2014 will reveal if 2013 was an apparition or if Logano actually has what it takes to win races and contend for a championship. IMO, it could go either way.

    I think Joey will fail to deliver, as usual, in 2014.

    Carry on SB22... :cheers:

    Joey has gotten to be EXTREMELY aggressive. Only a matter of time till somebody kicks his butt.

    What would you do with a whole barrel of em ??? become anemic :rolleyes:
     
  24. LOL. It's not that I'm simply covering all angles but when I consider what the #20 team showed they are capable of without Logano and that Logano was arguably the best Ford driver in 2013, I don't know what to expect from him. But, as I said, I think we'll find out next year.

    Greg 2014 RF YAHOO CHAMP Your leader

    I think Joey was probably the most improved driver of the year, he jumped from a C grade driver to a B grade driver.
    Whether he stalls at B, falls back to C, or moves up to one of the elite drivers is a crap shoot. With Penske he has the equipment and enough time with his youth for improvement.

    We will just have to wait and see what happens in the future. One other thing Joey has a lot of time if he continues to perform at the 2013 level. One win, maybe two and hovering around the top 10 isn't the performance of a light weight. If it takes him to age 30 to become one of the elites as in 3 plus wins, and threatening to win the title, he will have the time.
