With all the rumors circulating, is his seat secure? J.D. said he was comitted to Logano, but you know how rumors turn out in this sport.

I feel sorry for the kid myself! He got pushed up to fast and it may ruin his career.

Exactly. Hopefully Gibbs sticks with him I hate to see the 20 car where it is in points though. He really got pushed up to cup WAY to early. Another year or two in Nationwide would have done him good. its too bad the way the Stewart thing shook out last year. Thats what put him in this position.

Dinger's stock just keeps rising. I think it would it be safe to say he will have a ride (for somebody) for the rest of the season

Besides Mark Martin, has any other driver been "sent down" and made it back to cup sucessfully?

Amen, I can't figure out why they want these "kids" up to that level before they are old enough to vote, I would think seat time would be the greatest asset to honing the next great racer. Are they thinking that these drivers peak before they are 30? I guess that's why I don't work for a NASCAR team....

I can't imagine the pressure Logano must be under. There was way to much hype on this KID right from the start. Some of the media almost had me convinced that he had already had the season rookie title wrapped up before they took the green flag at Daytona. I'm sure he's great but it would have been nice to see him work his way up to a Cup ride at a more realistic pace.

Joey is lucky he came in this year and not last year. If this was last year, with the number of fully funded cup teams out of the top 35, he would be in trouble. This year I cant see him falling out due to the number of teams around.

Casey Atwood says hi.

As do a number of other drivers that the sport left hanging out. It's damn shame what some of these young guns have gone through.

And it aint just drivers that this happens to.

I believe Truex AND Bono are already gone, figuratively speaking of course. I think sooner is better myself, but not much out there to choose from right now.

The stuck with JJ Yalay for two years before they decided to can him. The didn't stick with Jason Leffler quite as long...:shock:

I hope they stick with Logano. He's a good egg...:)

The kid can drive a Nationwide car, that's for sure!

That he can. Didn't get to see the Nashville race, but, listened to it on Sirius, he and Kyle sounded like they were going at it most of the day.

Joey'll do fine in Cup...just needs to get the feel for these tracks he's seeing for the 1st time driving a car he's driving for the first time....we'll get a better idea on how he's progressing later in the year when he returns to some of these tracks. He's a great driver and "Coach" knows what he's got in Joey and will give him the time.
