Joey Logano Confirmed to Pull Double-Duty in Sonoma

SONOMA, Calif. (June 3, 2009) -- NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Joey Logano will compete in the Bennett Lane Winery 200, presented by Supercuts, NASCAR Camping World West Series race at Infineon Raceway on Saturday, June 20

Logano joins road-race veteran Boris Said as the latest two entries for the Camping World West Series race, which is part of the Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend, June 19-21 (Father's Day weekend).

Logano will pull double-duty for Joe Gibbs Racing, competing in both events. The Middleton, Conn., driver became the youngest winner in the West Series with a victory in his series debut in 2007 (16 years, 10 months). Logano competed in the West Series event at Infineon Raceway two years ago, but was sidelined by engine trouble.

Said will be driving a special silver-and-black DenBeste Motorsports entry honoring the career of Oakland Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler, who will serve as the Grand Marshal of the Toyota/Save Mart 350 weekend. Said placed third in his last West Series event in Sonoma in 2007. He has four top-10 finishes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Infineon Raceway.

Last year's NASCAR Camping World Series West race at Sonoma, which attracted a record field of 41 cars, featured a thrilling three-way battle for the win in the closing laps. Jason Bowles held on for the win, with Eric Holmes and Fairfield's Jim Inglebright close behind.
