Logano is enjoying hometown popularity
LOUDON, N.H.» Joey Logano can always count on top billing when he races at what counts as his hometown track.
Take a walk at the New Hampshire fan zone and Logano’s name is on the marquee for the film “Cross-threaded.”
Logano stars with drag racer Robert Hight in a trailer for the faux film sponsored by AAA that centers on the buddy team searching for the missing Golden Lug Nut.
“Turn right!” Hight urges during a high-speed chase.
“I can’t! I don’t know how!” Logano says.
Site of his first career Cup win, Logano has always enjoyed a robust following at the speedway.
“I feel like I am Dale Junior because everybody likes me,” Logano said, referencing NASCAR’S most popular driver.
The 27-year-old Logano is seven points outside the 16-driver field to secure a spot in NASCAR’S version of the postseason. Most drivers automatically qualify for a spot with a victory, but not Logano. NASCAR stripped him of all benefits that came with his April win at Richmond because of a violation.
