Catching Up With Joey Logano

It was a bitterly cold morning early Sunday in Atlanta.

And that's when I caught up with Joey Logano, the driver of the No. 20 Home Depot Toyota.  Logano was waiting for the Coca-Cola Track Walk to begin, and there were hundreds of folks waiting on him and fellow Coca-Cola driver Bobby Labonte to get the walk started before the race.

Joey was bundled up against the chill, and confessed to having on  three jackets. But despite the weather, he was ready to hit track and was hopeful about his team's potential at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

"I feel a lot better about this track in general, but I feel like this is one of my tougher race tracks I need more speed at,  but we had a good practice yesterday," Logano said. "We didn't qualify good but besides that we're pretty good in race trim.  We'll plug along. We'll be alright."

Unfortunately, Logano didn't have the day he had hoped Sunday - he tangled early on with Carl Edwards and ended the day in 35th place.  But Logano still has the highest points standing of all JGR drivers and he's ready to better that spot with a few good races.

He's also ready to put his much-publicized feud with Greg Biffle behind him.

"I really haven't talked to him," Logano said. "But we kind of move on and get past it. We just gotta race."
