When Mark Martin left Roush Fenway Racing in 2006, he said that if it was possible, he would pick Joey Logano to replace him. Obviously back then, Joey wasn't old enough to race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. The point is that even back then, Mark was a huge Joey Logano fan. So I think it was pretty cool Sunday at Pocono Raceway to see those two racing for the win. As you heard Mark say in his postrace interview, sure he wanted to win, but he also knew that kid was trying to win the race. Joey had the best car pretty much all weekend.

Pocono paves the way to excitement

Pocono paves the way for an exciting race I can't tell you the last time I have been to Pocono when the race had as much anticipation as Sunday did. Resurfacing the track and shortening the race gave us blistering speeds and gave the drivers more of a sense of urgency. I have said for years that the races at Pocono are too long. I've always felt we'd have a better, more...
