Joey Logano before Nashville: That track has an identity crisis

The Nashville track will be the next challenge for NASCAR racers, and they are aware of how inconvenient this track can be for them. Joey Logano decided to make a little joke before the race, so he doesn't know what to expect.

“I joke about this, but that track has an identity crisis. It doesn‘t know what it wants to be. It‘s too big to be a short track but too small to be a speedway. I think when you‘re setting up your car you’re thinking the same thing: ‘How much brake are we going to use?” Joey Logano said It is this fact that we cannot predict the final outcome that speaks to how interesting it will be, and many are waiting for their chance on this track.

“I have a hard time saying what race it‘s going to be like. That‘s why you‘ve got to watch; we don‘t even know. I think the unknown is what drives a lot of hype and a lot of questions. People want to watch things that are unpredictable,” Joey Logano added.

There is a lot of turbulence and inconsistency in many teams. Teams that are at the very top at one point but can finish the next race at the bottom. We'll see if it will be the same this time. “You see it every week; there are teams that you think have it figured out and the next week, they‘re in the way and have an issue.

It’s like, ‘What the heck is going on?‘ It‘s up and down and crazy. It’s because of the new car and nobody has it figured out, so you have a lot of inconsistencies for that reason,” says Joey Logano.

Justin Marks on Nashville race

Justin Marks spoke about the impressions before the race in Nashville. He praised his team and what they have been doing for years. “Trackhouse is more than a racing team. It’s a brand where we’re trying to inspire, we’re trying to activate in the intersection point between entertainment and motorsports.

It’s very much still in the business development strategy to have a brick-and-mortar presence in Nashville,” Justin Marks said. Nashville will also be an important race for his team, and we will see how his team manages.

“It’s a matter of figuring out how that looks with our goals scaling as a race team. Nashville is so important to us. I think we’ve got some momentum in getting something special going there,” Justin Marks added.
