Logano experienced beyond his years

King Features

Joey Logano, who won the Sprint Cup Series' Rookie of the Year award in 2009, turned some heads at Infineon Raceway by winning the pole.

The 21-year-old had won a pole before, at Bristol in 2010, but few expected him to record the fastest time at a road course. Race day wasn't bad, either, as Logano finished a creditable sixth in his No. 20 Home Depot Toyota. It was easily his best-ever finish at the series' two road courses, Infineon and Watkins Glen.

The Sonoma, Calif., layout provided a welcome and unexpected lift in Logano's fortunes. The Middletown, Conn., native remains only 23rd in the points standings after finishing 20th in 2009 and 16th in 2010. The Infineon finish was only his third top-10 of the season to date.

"This is the last place I figured we'd ever get a pole," said Logano after averaging more than 93 mph around the 11-turn, 1.99-mile course.
