Joey Logano Auto Club 400 Race Talk - Sunday, March 24, 2013

Joey Logano Auto Club 400 Race Talk - Sunday, March 24, 2013
The Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway (2-mile oval, Fontana, Calif.)

No. 22 Auto Club of Southern California Ford Fusion driven by Joey Logano

Sunday, March 24, 3:00 pm ET

Primary Chassis: PRS-846
Last Raced: New chassis
Backup Chassis: PRS-844
Last Raced: New chassis

THE NEWS & NOTES
  • TV STAR:While in California this weekend, Logano will try his hand at being a TV star. On Saturday, he’ll be in the ESPN booth for the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Fontana, where he is the defending race winner. Then, on Monday, Logano will film an episode of Disney XD’s top-rated show “Lab Rats,” where he will play himself in an upcoming episode.
  • SWAT TRAINING: Logano and several members of the No. 22 Auto Club team will take part in a Shell “Fuel for Success” program that will see he and the team will go through several SWAT exercises along with local SWAT members in front of local high school kids. The program will take place on Thursday at Colton High School in Colton, Calif. at 11am PT.
  • TOP 12 IN POINTS: Despite some bad luck all year long, Logano finds himself 12th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, just 11 points outside of the top-10, and 20 points outside of the top-six.
  • POINTS LEADER x2: Tab Boyd, Logano’s spotter in the Sprint Cup Series, finds himself as the spotting “points leader” in two of the three NASCAR national series divisions. Boyd also spots for Penske Racing Nationwide Series driver Sam Hornish, who leads the Nationwide Series point standings, as well as Johnny Sauter in the Craftsman Truck Series, who leads the points in that series.

HOW’S IT FEEL TO BE TOP-12 IN POINTS DESPITE THE BAD LUCK?

“I feel like we are much better than 12th in the point standings at this moment. If we could have finished where we deserved in each of the four races, I think we would be top-five in points easily. We’ve had a top-10 car each week and circumstances have just kept us from getting the finishes we deserved. We will turn it around and when we do, we will be contending for top-fives each week.”

ANY FINAL THOUGHTS ON LAST WEEK?

“In this sport, you can’t focus on last week too much. Every week is a new week and you need to move on and focus on the task at hand. The guys that are the best start new each week. So we are going into California focusing on California. We have Auto Club onboard as a sponsor this week and we are taking a fast car. We know that we are right in the thick of things. We just need to perform and get some good finishes and get up there in points even higher. And a win is coming for this No. 22 team. We can all feel it.”

I agree Jean. I said it before the Bristol race I felt this was the race he gets his first PRS win. And having the sponsor of the race on thd car helps!

RE: Joey Logano Auto Club 400 Race Talk - Sunday, March 24, 2013
Really hope that Joey can finally get his top-5 that he deserves this weekend. Reading the comments on other general nascar forums after last week, almost every non-Joey fan was calling Joey a non-factor and that he will be out of nascar in a few years and that he is a chump for messing with someone Hamlin's caliber. They don't see how unlucky Joey has been, and Joey without all these misfortunes would AT LEAST have top-10s each and every week. I have no doubt that Joey is ready to be a top-5 threat each and every week, he has been all season long. I just hope that Joey can start getting the results he deserves so he can prove to the haters that he deserves to be there and that he is a threat.

I think these next few weeks are very important for Joey. After last week, he has certainly gained the attention of nascar fans and this rivalry will be watched closely the next few weeks. Now that he has the attention, if he could string a few top-10s together, I truly believe he can change the general perspective of fans of him. This is his time to shine, and he certainly has the fire in him and the car to really pull off something special soon. And this something special could be tomorrow. This is Joey's time.

Joey is 22 and has tons of years left. His marketability alone will keep him in the sport. His talent though is going to be shown at PRS? expect Joey to be a huge factor this week. Dont worry what others say, they Iignorant but Joey is ready to take that enormous step this season

Think about this.. Joey has said many times that the Gen 6 car feels more like a 2012 Nationwide car. Now, last year on his way to winning 9 TIMES!!... This was the first track he won at!.. this could be the beginning of a great year! And even if not, we all know how fast he's has been so I think its only a matter of time.

I just love that after all Denny's talk about Joey being out of sight behind him to be a factor, Joey is the one putting Denny out of sight. This run is great timing....Denny looks foolish.
