Logano To Tackle Chicago Streets In Xfinity NASCAR Ford

Joey Logano, Cup Series regular behind the wheel of the No. 22 NASCAR Ford Mustang Dark Horse, will race in the Xfinity Series this coming weekend. He’s taking over the No. 15 Mustang in place of Hailie Deegan at the Chicago Street Course on July 6th, 2024.

According to a report from, Logano will make his first Xfinity Series start since 2019 this weekend. The No. 15 Mustang is fielded by AM Racing, and Deegan started with the team at the beginning of the 2024 racing season. Thus far, her performance in the division has been mediocre. Her average finishing position is 26.8, with just four results of 20th or better through 17 races. She is currently 27th in points, last among drivers who have entered every event this year.

AM Racing cited Deegan’s lackluster performance as its reason for tapping Logano to drive the No. 15 NASCAR Ford at Chicago. In fact, the team said it hopes that Logano’s experience will help make it more competitive as the season continues.

“The level of competition in the Xfinity Series is as competitive as it’s ever been,” Moore said in a press release. “It is our goal at AM Racing to field a competitive race team through our technical alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing and provide any of our drivers the best equipment and opportunity to be successful on track each weekend. With that being said, we haven’t had the success on track that we were hoping for in the first half of the season.”

He added, “When the opportunity to have Joey in the car at Chicago became a possibility, we felt we needed to take advantage of the knowledge and feedback that a two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion could provide to our teams’ growth.”

Logano drove his No. 22 Mustang to an eighth-place finish in last year’s inaugural Chicago race, and he’s looking forward to taking on the streets again.

“Racing in the rain on Chicago’s Street Course last year was a challenge within itself,” Logano said. “Any extra seat time is always a positive for unique tracks such as this one. Driving the NASCAR Xfinity Series cars are a lot of fun, and I’m looking forward to climbing behind the wheel of the No. 15 AM Racing Ford Mustang with high hopes to wheel it to the front.”
