Joey Logano Graduates to NASCAR's Nationwide Saturday: Joey Logano turned 18 Saturday, which means he's now old enough to make his Nationwide Series debut this Saturday for Joe Gibbs Racing at Dover International Speedway. Last year Logano won 5 of 13 starts in the NASCAR Camping World East Series after it was opened to drivers 16 and up. "I don't think that NASCAR has ever seen anything quite like Joey Logano," said Mark Martin, who has been touting the kid's driving talent since he was 14 years old.

Legano finished sixth yesterday in his first Nationwide race, running extremely well and driving skillfully. He gave up fifth with about 10 laps to go, but held off everyone else behind him with some smart drafting and by using traffic to his advantage. Legano'll be up with the big boys by next season.
