As most of the readers of this website know, late last week I had the opportunity to do one of my favorite interviews ever posted here at Aaron Torres Sports. It came with NASCAR superstar Joey Logano, just days before the Daytona 500 and the biggest day on his racing calendar. I was grateful then and now for the time he gave me.
If you didn’t have the chance to listen to the interview, I highly encourage you to check it out here. Joey was nice enough to take some time out of his schedule to chat with me about the race, his new crew chief, and the NASCAR blogger program, which allowed one lucky winner to get a free trip to Charlotte for the NASCAR All-Star series later this spring. That is, if Joey won the 500 of course.
Well unfortunately, as you know, Joey wasn’t able to win the event. In what ended up being a wild, fiery and thrilling Daytona 500, Joey finished ninth. To his credit though, Joey was in the Top 10 for virtually the entire race, and even led late, before Matt Kenseth took the checkered flag. Still, for a 21-year-old in just his third Daytona 500, there is a lot for Joey to build-on and be proud of. If you somehow missed the race (which, shame on you, by the way), you can get caught up by clicking here.
Anyway, with that said, I do have a couple quick announcements. The first is that obviously, I will not be able to provide a reader of this site the trip to Charlotte later this spring. That honor went to the website which was affiliated with Kenseth, TheSmokingJacket.com.
However what I am happy to report is that I will still be giving away free autographed gear courtesy of Joey to a couple readers on this site. I’m not sure exactly when I will be receiving the gear (which will likely autographed hats and posters), or how I will give it away, but I do encourage you to continually check back here at Aaron Torres Sports (or follow on Twitter @Aaron_Torres) for updates.
Regardless, I want to thank the NASCAR blogger program for taking the time to set me up with Joey, I want to thank Joey for taking the time to do the interview, and thank you all for taking the time to listen.
Keep an eye out for the announcement on the autographed gear from Joey.
Until next time!no comments
