A number of NASCAR drivers have children and a few of them have already begun training them to continue their legacy in the sport. Notable examples are Kyle Busch and Clint Bowyer, with their respective sons, Brexton and Cash. Now, Joey Logano is set to join that club with his son Hudson Joseph Logano.

However, the biggest difference is that Hudson Logano may be eyeing a different field. According to Logano Sr, his son could potentially eye the Supercross series. The two-year-old is already hard at work training on his bicycle and did a lap in his and Joey’s backyard on a dirt surface.

So far, there are no plans for Hudson to join any championship just yet. However, Cash Bowyer and Brexton Busch are already competing against each other in the Beginner Box Stock car series. Of course, Hudson Logano is still a little too young to compete in any championship; so, all he can do right now is hone his craft and improve his skills as he gets older.

What lies ahead for Joey Logano?

While all this is going on, Joey ‘Sliced Bread‘ Logano is going to enjoy some downtime in the offseason. The 2018 Cup Series champion ended the 2020 season in third place behind reigning champion Chase Elliott, and teammate Brad Keselowski. All year round, he won three races, in Las Vegas, Phoenix, and at Kansas. The Kansas win was enough for him to secure a Championship 4 berth.

With the 2021 season on the horizon, Joey Logano will be sure to mount a stronger challenge for the title. The 30-year-old has plenty of talent and will be eager to have another crack at the title. Of course, Chase Elliott will be that keen to surrender his crown so easily. However, Joey Logano and all of their other rivals will relish the challenge in the coming season.
