700 days. the toyota st mark 3 50 airs this sunday on fs one or on mike mibach caught up with the driver joey logano, who drives the 22 ford fusion car and talked about his journey and nascar. joey logano, you're coming out west. are you fired up to head off to sonoma county? absolutely i'm fired up by going back at a great day. strike. great area. um, we skipped it last year. we didn't get a chance to go out there and race in california last year, so the racetrack is, i always look at it as a short track type of road course. yeah, the closed tight quarters, bumping and banging for sure. heavy braking zones tire wear it makes it a fun road course to try to find your way around. makes it very challenging as well. so looking forward to getting out there, it's got its ups and downs. its twists and turns is 2.5 miles. i mean, what do you love about it, but at the same time as a race car
12:55 pm
driver, what are you not looking forward to about the racetrack? um, yeah. you got to learn to love them all. that's one thing i've learned throughout my years of experience is you don't choose what track you go, too. so you better learn to love them all. you better figure it all out. one way or another, um and sonoma was one of those ray strikes that was very challenging for me early in my career, um, feel like we have a decent um, you know, hold on it at this point road course racing has been really good for us this year up to this point. you know, probably the most tricky part of that race track is when they added the care. so um, you know, we used to skip that now. they re added that back into the course. and, uh there's a hill going up into that corner, and you can't see you know, you kind of you're going up a hill, and it drops off the other end. and you kinda gotta guess where you're at before you get there to make sure you're there is and that's that's a unique thing about sonoma is just so much elevation in. kind of you crest the top of the hills and you can't see where you're at until you get there. you know, i

12:57 pm
in the mix year it's you and i going down the stretch, maybe the last couple of laps. what what irks you what gets under your skin if i were to do something to you? and that would just take you off. um, that's a that's a tricky question there. um morning and i don't know. i mean, i think at some point, you know you're racing for the win. eventually the gloves come off, right. and you know, it's just gonna be there's no etiquette anymore. now it's all understandable, right? like i tried to put myself in your shoes. if you're running, you're trying to hold me off. you're probably gonna block me. right. i'm not gonna get mad at that. but if you blocked me, i'm probably going to hit you. and you shouldn't be mad at that. because, you know, so it's just gonna kind of go back and forth, right? and then and if i hate you, you're going to get mad and then you're going to hit me back. remember me mad and then we're gonna wreck greatly. good so, uh, it's part of part of racing and racing for the win. at the end, it is probably going to be a little bit of contact us to. no i can't do it on sunday, but i'll grab my
