The Sunday of Memorial Day weekend is the most notable in motorsports, with the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix, the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 all run on the same day.
To NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race winner Joey Logano, however, only one race matters. Unlike many of his fellow competitors, Logano won’t be paying much attention to the broadcasts of Monaco and Indy – even though his team owner, Roger Penske, will be trying to add to his record 16 Indy 500 victories.
“I really like the Coca-Cola 600,” Logano said. “To be honest with you, I’m so focused in on it, I don’t really watch anything else. I’ll flip through the Indy 500 throughout the day, periodically, but not very often. I’m not as focused in on that.
“We’ve got a race of our own that we have to worry about, but as a Team Penske driver, obviously we have a lot to root for up in Indy… It’s just a cool race weekend for a race fan. You can watch three huge races where there’s a lot on the line, and it’s pretty fun to be a part of that.”
Logano start’s second Sunday.
