Bristol Race Preview
Joey Logano
No. 20 GameStop Toyota
Joe Gibbs Racing

Joey Logano will make his third Nationwide Series start of the season Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway. Logano has two top-10 finishes this year, including a pole position and the most laps led at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. The Joe Gibbs Racing No. 20 GameStop team is currently second in the NASCAR Nationwide owner’s point standings.

What Joey’s Saying: You were dominant at Auto Club Speedway, leading 130 laps on the 2-mile oval. But, Bristol is a high-banked half-mile track. How is it different for you as a driver?: “The biggest thing is that the straightaways are so short. You don’t have time to do anything. You come off of one corner and you’re already looking toward your entry into the next corner. It gives you no chance to relax or rest. The first time I went to Bristol, I came in after a five-lap run and I was out-of-breath. I forgot to breathe! But, I’ve learned since then that you take a breath on the straightaways. I’m much better at it now that I’ve got it figured out.

“It’s definitely one of the coolest tracks. You walk into that place and it feels like a giant stadium. It’s a really quick track. The laps fly by, but since they re-did the track, you can move around to help the racecar. It's my job to find the best line for the GameStop Toyota.”

Spot the Difference: The Bristol event is the first short-track race of the season, so we asked crew chief Kevin Kidd “what are three things that are different between the cars raced here versus cars prepared for larger speedways?” Here’s what he said:

“Number one would be brakes. At the shorts tracks, brakes are critical so you run a much bigger package. At the speedways, we don’t use any cooling ducts for the brakes, but we use them on the short tracks to keep the brakes operating within a certain range of temperature.

“Number two would probably be the entire suspension package. On the speedways, you are so concerned with aerodynamics and how you’re placing the car to maintain a certain attitude relative to the ground. You have to compromise your set-up to maintain the aerodynamics. On a short track, you’re not so worried about that, so you want to set-up the suspension in the front and rear of the car to get the maximum mechanical grip.

“Third, I’d say the construction of the car. We lighten-up the chassis. The car still has to weight 3400 pounds overall, so we might use a chassis that takes 100 pounds of ballast on a speedway car versus a lighter short-track chassis where we can add 500 pounds of ballast. The key is to get the weight as low as we can to achieve the lowest center-of-gravity for the entire car. We always try to do that, but we can be much more aggressive with that on a short-track set-up.”

What’s Joey Playing This Week?: The No. 20 GameStop Toyota will feature the ominous tones of Sony Computer Entertainment’s God of War III. The game for Sony’s PlayStation 3 was selected in some polls as the “most anticipated release” of 2010. God of War III is scheduled for a March 16 release at the more than 6400 GameStop stores around the world, or online at GameStop.com.

Well Harvick was all over Joey and looked to be faster but the thing is if he wanted to wreck him why didn't he do it earlier when he could have passed him and mad a charge to the front rather then doing it on the last lap when it's meaningless

Like it or not, Joey has to learn to protect himself out there. Yes it was crappy of Happy to do that,but it's up to Joey to be a step ahead.

I agree. Joey is going to have to start racing these guys like they are racing him or he is going to continue to get dumped.

Joey has shown many times that he can get around people clean any time we wants, he had just passed Harvick cleanly earlier in that run before Harvick caught back up. Look at the races with Kyle Busch for the lead, same thing. Joey has proven that he has the talent to get the job done using raw talent and i think the one mistake he makes is assuming that the other drivers have the same type of talent to be able to do the same to him.

Harvick and Biffle could't get around Joey without bumping to save their lives so they bump him out of the way, i don't mind that, whatever works for them but when Joey is behind them he goes by like there standing still he he doesn't touch them at all. Sure he blocks but so do they but the difference is he gets around them, they can't so they get mad because a 19 year old is showing them up.

I agree Joey is too nice but he's also way competitive and i don't agree that he gives spots away. Sure he gets dumped and people say he should dump back but he can't do the dumping if he's the one in front and besides i agree with joey that it's stupid to do that cuz u can take yourself out aswell

You can easily tell that Joey was pissed and that he wanted to probally kill Kevin Harvick
