NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Star Joey Logano Headed Back "Home" to Visit Fans at Toyota of Wallingford This Wednesday
Defending New Hampshire Race Winner Making Appearance Just 15 Miles from Hometown
CONCORD, NC (June 21, 2010) -- Sprint Cup drivers are loved far and wide by their fans. But few places are they loved more than in their hometowns and in their home states. The same can be said for Middletown, Connecticut's own Joey Logano. The defending Sprint Cup Series Rookie of the Year and perennial fan favorite is a hit with the New England-area NASCAR fans.
And those fans will get a special opportunity to come out and meet Logano leading up to this weekend's NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series events at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Logano will make a special appearance at Toyota of Wallingford in Wallingford, CT this Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wallingford is just 15 miles from Logano's hometown of Middletown, CT.
"It is always awesome to come back home and get to meet the fans and see some of the people that I grew up with back in the days in Middletown," said Logano, who is the defending race winner of the summer Sprint Cup Series event at New Hampshire. "And whenever I come back, I like to try and do appearances at local businesses to help them out. And it makes it easy to go to a local Toyota dealership like Toyota of Wallingford.
"Toyota has been a huge part of my career and a big supporter of me, Joe Gibbs Racing and all of our programs. They have really helped me get to the point that I am at in my racing career and anything I can do to just bring Toyota a little bit of added attention is really important to me. The great folks at Toyota of Wallingford asked us to come do this appearance and it was a no brainer. Heck, it's in my neck of the woods, so I'm more than excited about it."
