Found August 02, 2012 on Fox Sports:
Joey Logano burst on to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series scene full time in 2009, an 18-year old racing prodigy already hailed as "Sliced Bread" -- as in, "The best thing since . . . " Instead, he's in danger of getting stale after 3-1/2 mostly underwhelming years at the sport's top level, where, he has discovered, there's a big difference between getting there and performing. As the series returns to Pocono (Pa.) International Raceway this weekend, Logano is ranked a season-low 17th in points, finds himself out of championship "Chase" mulligans and still is looking for a job for the 2013 season. So it has never been more important to Logano to remind everyone why championship team owner Joe Gibbs gave him this elite opportunity, to display the kind of talent he demonstrated at Pocono eight weeks ago, when he put the No. 20 Home Depot Toyota on the pole and later into Victory Lane. "We go into Pocono with a lot of confidence after winni...

Joey Logano Media Transcript

THE MODERATOR:  We welcome Joey Logano, driver of the No. 20 Home Depot Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing.  He currently sits 17th in the NASCAR Cup Series pointing standings, and he won at Pocono Raceway during the series’ first visit to the ‘Tricky Triangle’ this year on June 10, putting him in prime position for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup wild-card berth and is currently...

Joey Logano Pennsylvania 400 Race Preview

For the first time since his rookie season, Joey Logano will be pulling into the track with a bulls-eye on his back.  Logano comes into this weekend’s Pennsylvania 400 as the defending winner at Pocono when the 22-year-old picked up his second-career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory at the “tricky triangle” on June 10.  Logano put together the most impressive run of his four...

Top teams can change approach now

One of the guys I really want to watch this weekend in Pocono Raceway is the June winner there, Joey Logano. I want to see if he can stand up against probably about five guys who are going to be hard to beat there. On top of all that, if Joey could pull off the Pocono sweep by winning both NASCAR Sprint Cup races there this year, it makes a big statement to Joe Gibbs Racing. Joey...

Sprint Cup Race Preview: Pennsylvania 400

For the second and final time of the 2012 season, the Sprint Cup Series heads north to the Poconos for 400 miles on the 2.5-mile Pocono Raceway. The "Tricky Triangle" shortened both of its races from 500 miles to 400 this year, but the story remains the same in Victory Lane—there's a good chance that Joe Gibbs Racing will be there. Since 2001, JGR cars have scored...

Mark Martin Pennsylvania 400 Race Preview

CORNELIUS, N.C.—   No. 55 Aaron’s Dream Machine Toyota driver Mark Martin’s last visit to Pocono Raceway might have been his best performance in the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup season. Martin made a daring pass on a restart to take the lead with just seven laps left in the track’s first 400-mile race. Joey Logano retook the top spot with three to go and beat Martin to the finish...
