What Joey Logano thinks of his new NASCAR teammate
Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano have wasted no time in breaking in their new teammate relationship at Penske Racing. The two participated in this week's test at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
On Wednesday, Logano was asked how he and Keselowski can help each other this season. Here was his answer:
"It’s really cool to have a teammate that’s a student of the sport, that really studies it and will push me to do things differently. I think the coolest thing that Brad is able to do is he’s able to think outside of the box – like way outside the box. I think that’s interesting to me, to see the way his mind works," Logano said.
"I’ve learned a lot the last couple days and the ways he thinks through a race car is a little bit different than normal, and I think that’s cool. I think it’s good to have a little bit of both on a team, so I can learn a lot on the way he leads a team and drives a race car and the way he sets up his car. I seem to be a little bit different, the things he looks for. There are a lot of different things. The way he drives his car is a little bit different than me, too. Taking some of his techniques, I’ve tried them out there and there are pros and cons to everything, but it gives me a few more tools to work with when I’m out there.”
