AAA of Southern California Meets Joey Logano
AAA SoCal partners were in for a treat Wednesday night. Not only were they going karting but they got the chance to meet and race with 2015 Daytona 500 Champion Joey Logano!
All attendees were a buzz about this unique opportunity to race with a professional NASCAR driver. Joey is coming off his dominating performance in Phoenix last weekend.
“Excited be out here in California driving the Auto Club Ford Fusion. I’m getting a little warm up tonight with you all. You guys seem to have it all figured out there on the track tonight. Looking forward to a fun final!” – Joey Logano
The night set off with qualifying rounds to see which racers would be placed in the final. Joey jumped at the chance to get in some practice runs in the qualifiers and surprised many of the attendees. He was the fastest out of all the racers, who would of guessed it?! With a total of nine (9) racers with the fastest times, they had a chance to take on the NASCAR champ for the final race.
The final had Joey in the back of the grid to start the race. Once the green flag waved everyone was off. Joey jumped the start and raced up a few spots to gain even more advantage. To keep it short, we saw some great racing out there with Javier Chavez taking first place, Joey Logano taking second and Fritz Maskrey at third.
Congratulations to all the podium winners. They took home some great prizes provided by Auto Club Motorsports. Thanks to everyone who came out last night.
Watch Joey race in the Auto Club 400 this weekend at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana.
