"We're contenders 'cause we're here, and we've got a shot at it, but I'm also not blind to the fact that, if you set myself against Jimmie, he's more favored," Allmendinger said.

NASCAR Sprint Cup star Joey Logano at stable home with Team Penske

At the end of the 2012 season, Joey Logano was 17th in the final NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standings and out of a full-time job he had held since 2009, when he was 19. Logano lost his ride at Joe Gibbs Racing to Matt Kenseth, a veteran with a championship on his resume. But Logano found a comfortable home at Team Penske, where, two years after his ouster at JGR, he is considered one of a handful of favorites to win the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, which starts on Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway.
