COMEBACK KID: Joey Logano might have a new nickname – the “Comeback Kid.” Last weekend, Logano had to come from the back of the pack to earn a top-five finish in the Sprint Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway. Then on Sunday, racing in just his second NASCAR Camping World Series Truck race at Rockingham Speedway, Logano came back from a lap down to challenge for the lead on a final green-white-checkered flag finish, eventually finishing second. TRAVELING MAN: This will not be a week for Logano to just kick back and get some rest. The 22-year-old will be on a whirlwind appearance schedule, spending time in New York City and Indianapolis as he makes appearances for sponsors before heading back to North Carolina just in time to leave for Kansas. DOUBLE DUTY AGAIN: Coming off of two top-five finishes last weekend, Logano will once again be a double-duty driver this weekend at Kansas, competing in the Truck Series again for Brad Keselowski Racing and the Cup Series event. BACK HOME AGAIN: Shell-Pennzoil crew member Eric “Stretch” Baily will return home this weekend. Baily hails from Olathe, Kan., just miles away from Kansas Speedway. Baily, who is one of the mechanics on the No. 22 team, is an avid runner and hiker as well. JOEY LOGANO, NO. 22 AAA FORD HOW BIG WAS LAST WEEKEND’S TOP-FIVE FOR YOUR TEAM? “It was huge for our team. When you are thrown some adversity, it can define you. You can either fold under the pressure or excel because of it. And that is what we did. We’ve had a lot of things thrown at us this year and every time, we’ve been able to come out of it on a positive note. That builds a team’s morale and character and it’s really brought our team together. That’s a pretty awesome feeling. I think in the long run, it will make us even stronger and give us a lot of momentum heading into this long stretch of races.” HOW’S IT FEEL TO BE NINTH IN POINTS? “It is nice, but you always want to be better and I feel like we could be even better than ninth. But we just have to work on maintaining that position. If we can go out there and have some consistent runs, grab some top five and top 10s and a few wins along the way, the points will take care of themselves. The biggest thing is to make the most out of bad days, which is what we did in Texas. If we can keep that up, then things will work out just fine.”
