Joey Logano secured his fourth-consecutive Chase appearance in 2016 when he posted a win at the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan in June. In past seasons, Logano has entered the Chase with more momentum and wins than he has in 2016, but he's still a contender with his lowest Chase finish coming in 2013 when he placed eighth.

Outside of a few rough patches spread throughout the season, Logano has consistently finished inside the top-10 in 2016. Since the All-Star race in May, Logano has finished 10th or better in 12 of 14 races. His two other finishes: 37th at Pocono in August and 39th at Kentucky in July. Fortunately for him, Logano won't have to see either of those tracks in the Chase.
