For a driver once nicknamed "Sliced Bread," there was a time Joey Logano worried his career was toast.

Now, Logano is rolling as he heads to Dover International Speedway. He's easily enjoying the best season of his career. And maybe even his best week.

Logano won last week's second Chase for the Sprint Cup championship race at New Hampshire, what he considers his home track. The victory cemented his spot in the second round of the Chase, joining Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski as the only two drivers locked into the field.

Logano capped his week with a contract extension with owner Roger Penske that will keep him behind the wheel of the No. 22 Ford for years.
