RE: Camping World 300 - February 12th, 2010 - Daytona Race Talk
Daytona Race Preview

The 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series season begins Saturday afternoon at Daytona International Speedway. The DRIVE4COPD 300 is the first of 21 races this year for Joey Logano and the No. 20 GameStop Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing.

What Joey’s Saying: Explain your emotions as a new season starts in the Nationwide Series: "The off-season stinks! I want to go racing! I’m really stoked about going to Daytona, and it would mean a lot to win a race there. It doesn’t matter what you’re racing – heck, even a bike race would be big at Daytona. I’m ultra-competitive in anything I do, but it’s a place where I especially want to win.”

This is the third season together for Logano and GameStop. Do you consider yourself an “old veteran” of the Nationwide Series at age 19?: “Compared to what I’m used to, yes. I’m used to moving up after every season. This is the first time since quarter-midgets that I’m in the same series for a third year. Just knowing where to go at the track is one thing, simple things like where my bus is parked. But, on the racetrack, I know what to expect now. You know what you want in the racecar. Things like understanding pit strategy and the flow of the race, I just understand everything so much more. You can’t beat experience.”

What is it like having GameStop as a sponsor with unique video game paint schemes for nearly every race?: “It’s been a lot of fun for me. It’s neat to always have something different on the car each week. I’m always excited to get to the track to see what my car looks like. Plus, one of the perks of the job is I usually get a copy of the video game we’re promoting.”

Meet Kevin Kidd: Kevin Kidd, a 30-year-old native of Tazewell, Va., is the new crew chief on the No. 20 car. He comes to JGR after four years as an engineer at Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM).

What is your biggest challenge this week?: “The biggest thing for me is to begin to build team cohesion. I’m the new guy here, so it’s like starting over for many of these guys. We need to learn each other’s work habits and really get the season off on a good foot.

“It’s also about building a relationship with Joey. Just learning what he wants in the car. Like, when he says the car is tight, I have to understand how tight, and how to fix it. It helped that I went with Joey to Irwindale (Calif., where Kidd and Logano teamed to win the Toyota All-Star Showdown). He kind of twisted my arm to go, and I’m really glad he did because we learned a lot about each other and brought the trophy home! It was a good race with the pressure turned off. It was well worth the trip.”

What’s Joey Playing This Week?: The No. 20 GameStop Toyota will carry the colors of BioShock 2 at Daytona. BioShock 2, a first-person shooter from Take 2 Games, hits GameStop stores and GameStop.com this week. (Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows.)

Already a Winner: The NASCAR season is just beginning but Joey Logano already has two racing victories in 2010. He won the Toyota All-Star Showdown at Irwindale (Calif.) for the second time. The race is considered “the Daytona 500 of Short Track Racing.” He also won the Showdown in 2008.

Logano also topped a field of icy NASCAR and NHRA stars to win the Bodine Bobsled Challenge at Lake Placid, N.Y.

One-Two Punch: Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Logano and defending series champion Kyle Busch finished first and second in five Nationwide Series races during 2009. Of those five head-to-head battles, Logano won four.

Nice job Joey, 7th place finish. Too bad he lost draft in the last few laps and fell back some, might have finished 3rd or better.

7th Place is great, especially after spinning down the back stretch in order to avoid that wreck, as he went sliding into the grass.

Quote:Joey Logano Quotes: “That was a lot of fun, I promise you! We were really pushing hard at the end to try and win the race with our GameStop Toyota. When you can see the front of the field, you push that much harder. I made a run there (while in second place on lap 111 of 120) for the lead, but the car got loose and I chased it all the way up the banking. A lot of cars got by us, and we were able to fight back to seventh. That’s disappointing when you want to win the race, but it’s a solid finish and the car barely has a mark on it. Me and my new crew chief (Kevin Kidd) worked well. I wish we could have had a better finish, but we worked well together at making the adjustments to the car. I would be a whole lot happier if I was sitting in Victory Lane, but I still had fun.”

About being launched through the grass in a multi-car melee on lap 91: “I got hit from behind when they all started wrecking and ended up spinning through the grass. I’ve never been that fast sliding through the grass before. I was thinking I might flip over. I was watching the 33 car (Harvick) the whole time I was sliding, and I was working the wheel and the brakes. I was hoping I wouldn’t hit those strips of asphalt back there. That would have sent me on a heckuva ride! As I was sliding backwards, the rear of the car was getting light, and I just thought ‘ohhh boy…’ We needed a vacuum cleaner after that because the car was full of grass!”
