Joey Logano To Drive NASCAR Ford F-150 In Bristol Dirt 2023: Video

Joey Logano, reigning Cup Series champion and regular driver of the No. 22 NASCAR Ford Mustang, recently announced that he will once again compete in the Truck Series race on dirt at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 8th, 2023.

In a post on Twitter, Logano said, “Looks like we’re Truck racing on dirt again!” He tagged Hang 10 Car Wash, indicating that this organization will provide funding for his NASCAR Ford F-150 race truck, and also tagged ThorSport Racing, a Truck Series team that fields the fulltime entry for Hailie Deegan.

Logano did not indicate what numbers will decorate the doors of his F-150 race truck, although ThorSport has fielded the No. 66 F-150 as a part-time entry in past Truck Series events, so this could very well be Logano’s number.

It’s worth noting that Logano will be pulling double-duty over Easter weekend, driving in both the Truck Series and Cup Series on the dirt at Bristol.

Logano has certainly made friends with the Bristol dirt track. For the 2022 Bristol dirt Truck Series race, Logano took control of the No. 54 NASCAR Ford F-150 fielded by David Gilliland Racing before the organization switched from Ford to Toyota. Logano took the green flag on the pole, and wound up finishing sixth overall. Even further back, in 2021, Logano piloted the No. 22 Mustang to the Cup Series victory for the division’s inaugural point-paying dirt race.

More recently, Logano’s No. 22 Mustang found the checkered flag at Atlanta Motor Speedway on the asphalt oval, besting his fellow NASCAR Ford driver Brad Keselowski in the No. 6 Mustang across the line. True to form, expect to see Logano near the front of the field for both Bristol dirt races.
