Joey Logano has joined the long list of NASCAR drivers who are training the next generation of racers. In other words, he is grooming Hudson Logano to become a racer just like himself. Admittedly, the youngster appears to be pursuing a slightly different career path.

This is largely because Hudson has been racing around on a bike. This has probably led Joey to suspect that he may be interested in two-wheel racing.

Of course, there are many two-wheeler racing series, but Logano believes that his son may head to the motocross arena.

In a bid to further fuel that dream, Joey Logano floated the idea of building a ramp for his son. Considering that motocross riders often perform jumps during races, a ramp would be useful.

Of course, Hudson is still a little young, so there is little chance of him racing competitively anytime soon.

What does the 2021 season hold for Joey Logano?

The Team Penske driver came agonizingly close to winning his second Cup Series title. Unfortunately, things did not work in his favor and he was forced to settle for 3rd place.

Now, the 2021 Cup Series season offers him another shot at a Cup Series crown. Without a doubt, ‘Sliced Bread’ will be keen to mount a stronger challenge for the crown.

In 2020, Logano notched 3 wins in the season. This included one at Kansas that secured his berth in the Championship 4. The 30-year-old will be keen to add to his 2018 Cup title and the new season could be a good place to start.

Of course, he has to try to fend off the reigning champion Chase Elliott, as well as other major contenders. This also includes his own Team Penske teammates, especially Brad Keselowski, who is also a former champion. Whatever the case may be, Joey Logano will definitely enjoy a good challenge.
