Joey Logano is on the outside looking in of the playoffs, and as such he has a lot on his mind. Shocks, springs, camber, downforce, diapers, dump trucks, ice cream cravings …
In addition to fighting to salvage his season, Logano and his wife, Brittany, are expecting their first child, a son. Logano’s teammate Brad Keselowski bought Logano a book, “Dude, You’re Gonna Be a Dad!” by John Pfeiffer. In addition to reading that, Logano has been immersed in the pre-dad life.
“We did the registering, which was way more than I ever thought it would be and way harder than I thought it would be,” Logano said on Friday at Michigan International Speedway. “I was over in the corner scanning all the toys. ‘Cool, a dump truck. He needs a dump truck.’”
He said Brittany has been craving ice cream, of all flavors, which is fine by him because he eats it, too.
“It’s gonna be fun, but really, you don’t know what you don’t know sometimes. Just like when I started Cup racing. I didn’t know what I was doing, and this is gonna kind of be the same thing. I don’t know if any parent really knows exactly what they’re doing the first time they had a kid.”
