Joey Logano Wins Michigan International Speedway, Pays Off for Shell $aver Cardholders
Joey Logano, driver of the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion, took the checkered flag with Pennzoil technology under the hood on Sunday, which will pay off for Shell $aver Cardholders. The win at Michigan International Speedway (MIS) is the first 2013 points race victory for the Shell-Pennzoil team, which means Shell Saver Cardholders can save at the pump this Wednesday, August 21, as part of the WINsdays promotion. It was also Logano's first win at Michigan and first NASCAR Sprint Cup win for Penske Racing. He became the youngest winner in MIS history by saving enough fuel and taking the lead after a final restart with three laps to go.
Throughout the season, Shell engineers work closely with the technical team at Penske Racing to develop Pennzoil motor oil formulations to help maximize performance, efficiency and engine reliability with each adjustment contributing to the advancement of the brand's technology.
"Racing oils are one of the few areas of a stock car that can be changed and tweaked race to race. Having access to Pennzoil's knowledge and technology helps to keep our engines clean and maximizes the most performance out of them possible, giving us an advantage over our competition," said Travis Geisler, Director of Competition at Penske Racing.
There are 13 more points races remaining in the 2013 season, giving existing and new Shell Saver Cardholders 13 more chances to win.
In February, Shell and Penske announced the return of the popular WINsday promotion for a third consecutive year. The Wednesday after any win by the No. 22 Ford Fusion in a points race is now known as WINsday because Shell Saver Cardholders can use their card to purchase Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines or Shell Diesel and save 22 cents per gallon!* As always, the savings will be reflected on the cardholder's statement.
And to celebrate the national launch of the Fuel Rewards Network (FRN) program, current Shell Saver Cardholders will also have the opportunity to earn a 22 cents-per-gallon savings that will automatically be pre-loaded on their FRN Card for each No. 22 team victory. This is in addition to their Shell Saver Card savings!

About the Shell Saver Card
The Shell Saver Card is a non-credit payment product exclusive to Shell that links directly to cardholders' checking accounts and offers savings at the pump. While Shell Saver Card earnings apply only to gasoline and diesel purchases, the card can be used for any purchases at Shell-branded stations except lottery tickets. Through Telecheck and the use of personal PIN numbers, the Shell Saver Card offers safety mechanisms that enhance consumer security. Since the Shell Saver Card directly links to a checking account, applying for the card does not affect consumer credit scores, nor are there any application or annual fees.
The Shell Saver Card makes organizing family budgets easier by using one card that lists all Shell fuel purchases and offers cardholders earnings every time it is used, allowing consumers to get the most out of every drop of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines.
From gasoline cards to credit cards, the Shell Family of Cards addresses the diverse financial needs of today's consumers with a range of payment options. For more information about the Shell Saver Card and the Shell Family of Cards or to apply instantly, visit www.shell.us/cards.
* Fuels savings are limited to 25 gallons per vehicle, or limits placed by Shell and/or limits placed on your payment card by your financial institution, each of which may be lower.
