The 2018 Cup Series champion and the 2020 Rookie of the Year feel very optimistic about the tracks in the 2021 schedule
Joey Logano and Cole Custer both drove on two different layouts of Daytona International Speedway in 24 hours: the road course on Tuesday during the Busch Clash and the oval on Wednesday at the first practice of and qualifying for the Daytona 500. The drivers shared their thoughts on driving on totally different tracks in such a short amount of time.
“I went from dirt to road courses to a superspeedway – all within three days”, said Logano. “It’s been a lot of fun for me, I’ve really enjoyed the fact that we get to race different types of tracks, so I think that’s the most attractive piece about NASCAR right now for a driver. You get road racing, you get superspeedways and everything in between, and a dirt track on top of that. To me, that’s fun and exciting.”
“No one else could do that, no series has that many types of racetracks, so I like that part, I’m good with it. To be a winner in today’s world and be a champion in this series you have to be pretty versatile as a driver. “
“I’d agree with Joey also”, Custer added. “I think it makes some fun to have that many different disciplines that we have to figure out and I think it does makes it more interesting just because there’s more to study, there’s more to prepare for the race, and there’s a lot more adapting also.”
Joey Logano and Cole Custer finished 21st and 25th respectively on Wednesday’s Daytona 500 qualifying.
