Achieved NASCAR's minimum age of 18 on May 24th, 2008. Won his first Nationwide Series race just 21 days later.

The Real Deal:

In the rush for car owners to find the next superstar driver often the media will over-hype any fresh young face that has ever visited Victory Lane. Joey Logano is not hype. Mark Martin called Joey Logano "The Real Deal" and Logano has built an incredible racing resume for one so young.

Logano has a proven ability to adapt to new situations very quickly. I fully expect that Joey Logano will find his way to Victory Lane often in his career.
