With the solar eclipse happening in the final off-week of the season … maybe it’s all lined up to alter — or correct — the universe enough to restore Joey Logano’s expectations to be part of NASCAR’s playoff push.

Only two more regular-season races remain to set the trophy field and the perennial playoff challenger — and 2016 championship runner-up — laughed a little at the celestial suggestion Monday. But Logano acknowledged his Team Penske team welcomes a course correction if it puts his No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Ford into the championship mix.

He has only two more shots — at historic Darlington (S.C.) Raceway next weekend and then the regular-season finale at Richmond (Va.) Raceway the following Saturday night to win his way into the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup playoffs.

“I wasn’t expecting to be in this situation after the season started and even after the first few races,” Logano acknowledged Monday. “We had a good start to the season and then went through quite the downturn for a while and have just been trying to dig out of a hole.

“Now, we’re in the hole, our backs are up against the wall and we’ve got to win. That’s plain and simple as it is. We’ll run hard here the next few races in Darlington and in Richmond and hopefully come out with a win in one of them and put ourselves in the playoffs and shoot for a championship.

“We’ve got to go one race at a time for sure, but definitely this off-weekend coming up is nice to kind of catch our breath and be ready to go at it again.”

Logano’s team began the year with an amazing eight top-six finishes in the first nine races, including a victory at Richmond in May. NASCAR, however, ruled days after Logano’s win that it was an “encumbered finish,” finding issues with the car’s suspension during inspection.

And the asterisk placed next to that victory means it does not count as an automatic playoff-qualifier for Logano.

After that controversial win, Logano didn’t have another top-20 finish for six weeks. He is still looking for his first top-10 since Indianapolis, five races ago.
