Local Legend: Logano Searches For First Cup Win At Facility He Starred At As A Youth
At the age of 9, Joey Logano moved from Connecticut to Georgia with his family to aid his racing aspirations and his sister’s figure skating career.
Logano quickly turned Atlanta Motor Speedway into his personal playground, winning the National Bandolero Bandits’ championship in 1999 and capturing the AMS Bandolero division championship in 2000. At age 12 (in 2002), Logano set a track record with 14 consecutive Legends wins – a mark that still stands. He captured the Young Lions championship the same year.
The No. 22 Team Penske driver is still searching for his first NASCAR national series win at AMS. He has struggled there with only two top 10s in nine starts, but finished fourth last season after winning the pole, and second in 2013.
Logano finished sixth in the Daytona 500.
