Two-time defending NASCAR Cup Series champion Joey Logano recently shared his thoughts on the challenges he faced in winning his championships.
The Team Penske Ford driver claimed his maiden title in 2018, followed by another triumph in 2022. Logano is a key member of the team’s dynamic trio alongside Brad Keselowski and Ryan Blaney.
In a candid interview with Frontstretch, he shed light on his two Cup Series victories, highlighting the difficulty he encountered in both cases. When asked if winning the championship made it easier to navigate subsequent seasons, Logano replied:
“I mean, it’s easy anyway. It’s not that hard to be the champion, it’s hard to become the champion.”
Logano emphasized that becoming a champion is always a difficult feat, regardless of previous accomplishments. When asked if his second championship was relatively easier than his first, the 33-year-old dismissed the idea, saying:
“No, no. Becoming the champion is tough every time. You might have a better idea of how to do it, but that doesn’t make it any easier.”
