JOEY LOGANO, No. 20 GameStop Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing

What did the win at California mean to you? "I'll tell you what, that was the coolest race of my life --no doubt in my mind. I went to the point in that race where I was going to try to salvage a top-10 out of it and all of a sudden I'm sitting third and all of a sudden I took the lead and I thought, 'I got a shot at this thing!' I couldn't believe it. That was cool after we get put in the fence and almost ruined our day we were able to fight back. It really hurt my car a lot. I think this is the best way to get them back."

How smooth was the transition into the driver's seat of the No. 11 CJM Racing Camry? "Paul Wolfe (crew chief) and the car chief and a couple guys I worked with at Armando Fitz's -- we ran a whole year together. So, I know all about how Paul (Wolfe) thinks and he knows what I think. It jelled pretty fast. I'm excited about returning to the Ridemakerz Toyota. I've been wanting to come back and drive that car. The first outing was really good, and just coming back and working with Paul and those guys is something I've wanted to do."
