TV STAR: While in California this weekend, Logano will try his hand at being a TV star. On Saturday, he’ll be in the ESPN booth for the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Fontana, where he is the defending race winner. Then, on Monday, Logano will film an episode of Disney XD’s top-rated show “Lab Rats,” where he will play himself in an upcoming episode. SWAT TRAINING: Logano and several members of the No. 22 Auto Club team will take part in a Shell “Fuel for Success” program that will see he and the team will go through several SWAT exercises along with local SWAT members in front of local high school kids. The program will take place on Thursday at Colton High School in Colton, Calif. at 11am PT. TOP 12 IN POINTS: Despite some bad luck all year long, Logano finds himself 12th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, just 11 points outside of the top-10, and 20 points outside of the top-six. POINTS LEADER x2: Tab Boyd, Logano’s spotter in the Sprint Cup Series, finds himself as the spotting “points leader” in two of the three NASCAR national series divisions. Boyd also spots for Penske Racing Nationwide Series driver Sam Hornish, who leads the Nationwide Series point standings, as well as Johnny Sauter in the Craftsman Truck Series, who leads the points in that series. JOEY LOGANO, NO. 22 AUTO CLUB OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA FORD HOW’S IT FEEL TO BE TOP-12 IN POINTS DESPITE THE BAD LUCK? “I feel like we are much better than 12th in the point standings at this moment. If we could have finished where we deserved in each of the four races, I think we would be top-five in points easily. We’ve had a top-10 car each week and circumstances have just kept us from getting the finishes we deserved. We will turn it around and when we do, we will be contending for top-fives each week.” ANY FINAL THOUGHTS ON LAST WEEK? “In this sport, you can’t focus on last week too much. Every week is a new week and you need to move on and focus on the task at hand. The guys that are the best start new each week. So we are going into California focusing on California. We have Auto Club onboard as a sponsor this week and we are taking a fast car. We know that we are right in the thick of things. We just need to perform and get some good finishes and get up there in points even higher. And a win is coming for this No. 22 team. We can all feel it.”
