Quote:Meet Logano and Zipadelli! Fans of Logano and crew chief Greg Zipadelli can meet them at The Home Depot store #114 in Morrow, Ga. on Thursday, March 4 from 5 – 7 p.m. The store is located at 2034 Mt. Zion Road. There will be a children’s workshop, photo opportunities with the No. 20 Home Depot Toyota and an autograph signing by Logano and Zipadelli. Wristbands for the signing will be given out one hour prior to the first 700 fans in line.

The No. 20 Team is taking chassis #262 to Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend. The team raced this chassis just one, two weeks ago at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. where Logano drove it to a fifth-place finish.

Logano Quotes: "The start of the season is like night and day compared to last year. I know it sounds obvious, but it is so much more fun now. I think as a team we have a lot of momentum going and it’s important to keep it going. It’s only three races into the season, but it sets the tone for the guys on the team and back in the shop. Last year was hard on everyone, and I think we are all reaping the benefits of a lot of hard work and standing behind one another. No one gave up last year because we knew we could do it, and I think we are showing everyone else that now."

On Atlanta: "Atlanta was a tough track for me last year, a lot like Texas. I tend to run better on tracks with a lot of grip, and Atlanta doesn’t have any. I have gotten much better on them, so I am feeling better about this weekend. The track is so line-sensitive, and I struggled with that. It was frustrating. I’m looking forward to going back now and seeing how much we can improve from last year. Now that Zippy (crew chief Zipadelli) and I understand each other better, I think it will be much easier to work on the car. Plus, I’m not spending time trying to figure out my way around the tracks anymore. We can unload off the truck and get right to work tuning on The Home Depot Toyota."

Quote:What is the key to having the fastest car at Atlanta? “I haven’t been (to Atlanta) enough to know exactly what we need, but that place has no grip and it seems like every time I go there, I’m stuck on the bottom. I’m going to really focus on getting my car running good on the top and the bottom and try to get a good balance in the race car. That’s probably the biggest deal. It definitely becomes tire management. There are times you’ll get loose down the front straightaway — you lose that much grip. It’s hard to imagine you’re going almost 200 (miles per hour) and you’re going down the straightaway when you light up your tires. The race is fun as a driver.”

What do you think makes the Atlanta track so fast? “I guess it’s the banking and the size of the track and that’s the way they did it — it has a lot of speed. I have a lot of history at the track, but only on the quarter-mile in a Legends car race. I used to live in Atlanta and run a lot of the Legends car races — ‘Thursday Night Thunder’ — just not much on the big track yet. So, we are getting there.”

Do you have any immediate goals? “Right now, for me, it’s to try to keep this thing in the top-12. I think it’s awesome right now to be in the points where we are at and have a shot at making the Chase right now — compared to last year we didn’t even think about making the Chase. To be in a good position and to have an awesome Home Depot car — I’m excited about that.”

Because... sometimes you could have one of the best cars in clean air, but once you get back in the dirty air, it really messes with the handling of the race car.

Well see what happens, I hope he will be fine off course.
