Joey Logano to Pilot the No. 15 Ford Mustang for AM Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Chicago Street Race

AM Racing

AM Racing confirmed today that Ford Performance driver Joey Logano will drive the No. 15 AM Racing Ford Mustang for the upcoming NASCAR Xfinity Series race at the Chicago Street Race on Saturday, July 6.

Logano, Sunday’s winner of the NASCAR Cup Series Ally 400 race at Nashville (Tenn.) Superspeedway will fill in for Hailie Deegan, who has piloted the team’s Ford Mustang in the first 17 Xfinity races of the season. 

After a rough start to the first half of the Xfinity Series season, the team is looking to channel the two-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion and Sunday’s winner at Nashville Superspeedway to help provide feedback that the team can use to improve on-track competition as the sport heads into the second half of the season.

“The level of competition in the Xfinity Series is as competitive as it’s ever been,” commented AM Racing team president Wade Moore. “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. 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.” 

Added Moore, “We intend to take the feedback and data from the Chicago race weekend and apply it to building better race cars each week so AM Racing can have a stronger second half of the season.”

Team partner Klutch Vodka will support Logano’s return to Xfinity Series competition in the second-annual Loop 110 at the Chicago Street Course. 

“We support AM Racing and we’re happy to have Joey Logano behind the wheel of the No. 15 Klutch Vodka Ford Mustang at the Chicago Street Course,” offered Klutch Vodka CEO Anthony S. Quattrochi and his Co-Founder, fiancé Brandy Wong. 

“His experience and talent will be a great asset to the AM Racing team this weekend and no doubt will present the opportunity to introduce the Klutch Vodka brand to new race fans as well.” 

Logano, a native of Middletown, Connecticut, has delivered many achievements in the Xfinity Series, including 36 poles, 30 wins, 95 top-five and 143 top-10 finishes. 

The Team Penske driver did not compete in the inaugural Xfinity Series race last year in Chicago; however, he finished eighth in the first-ever Cup Series Street Course event. 

AM Racing at the Chicago Street Course, with driver Brett Moffitt, captured a Xfinity team-best of fourth after starting seventh in the 2023 The Loop 121.

“Racing in the rain on Chicago’s Street Course last year was a challenge within itself. 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.”

The Loop 110 at the Chicago Street Race is scheduled for Saturday, July 6th, at 3:30 p.m. Fans can tune in to NBC to see all the action from the Windy City.
