NEW YORK (Oct. 5, 2015)Wheels Up, the revolutionary membership-based private aviation company, announced today that 25-year-old Joey Logano, professional stock car driver, has become a Wheels Up Member alongside a roster of sports superstars, including J.J. Watt, Kirk Herbstreit, Caroline Wozniacki and Rickie Fowler, among others. From runway to raceway, Wheels Up provides the perfect private aviation solution for the championship contender, who finished 10th in the AAA 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race at Dover International Speedway.

“Throughout the racing season, I compete in 38 race weekends and many more events for partners and fans across the country. Wheels Up is the best way to get from place to place in top racing form,” said Logano. “Like my race car, I need an aircraft with world-class performance and reliability, and there is no better way for me to get where I need to go than to fly Wheels Up.”

A seven-year NASCAR veteran, Logano has proven to be an elite driver and the future of the sport, capturing 11 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series wins, 25 NASCAR XFINITY Series victories and one NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win. Most recently, he was crowned the 2015 Daytona 500 Champion and holds the record as the youngest race winner, pole winner and Rookie of the Year in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series history. This past weekend at Dover marked Logano’s 400th NASCAR National Series race. He currently sits 4th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series point standings with just seven races remaining in the season.

“Today we added another winner to our roster with Joey Logano joining Wheels Up as our newest member,” said Kenny Dichter, Wheels Up Founder and CEO. “He is in great company with other Wheels Up Members who excel in their professions and sit at the top of their game.
