Dover, DE- Joey Logano, driver of the No. 22 Shell Penzoil Ford Fusion, had a chance to meet with some underprivileged youth before the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at the Dover International Speedway last weekend. Shell’s Fuel for Success program, the Dover Police Department, and student resource office Cpl. Keith Hester provided the opportunity for the students to meet with Joey and get a behind the scenes look at the track on race day. Cpl. Hester generated interest amongst the kids by organizing an Xbox NASCAR tournament; any participant in the tournament got to attend the race through the program. “I got involved because of the video game tournament we had at our school,” said Central Middle School 8th-grader, Tanor Conter. “I didn’t win but I wanted to be part of the program because I like it a lot.”
