Logano a top contender in 2015
LAS VEGAS, NV (TheSpread) – Joey Logano wasn’t far off from being the NASCAR Sprint Cup champion in 2014. Can h find a way to reach the top in 2015?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Logano has been given 8/1 odds to win the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship. Jimmie Johnson is the favorite with 5/1 odds while Jeff Gordon and Kevin Harvick each had 6/1 odds.
Logano finished fourth in the standings this year, 15 points out of first place, but he was one of four drivers to make the final race and have a shot at the title. He had five wins and 16 top 5s this year, both of which were career-best performances for him.
Logano has really flourished in the last two seasons since joining Team Penske with Brad Keselowski. Logano finished eighth in the 2013 standings, which was his career-best prior to what he did this season. He failed to crack the top 15 in his career prior to that with Joe Gibbs Racing.
