I didn’t realize exactly how tall Joey Logano is until I interviewed him at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It was right after his Sprint Cup Series qualifying run and I found myself standing next to him thinking, “Heey, he’s really tall!” You don’t get a lot of racecar drivers that are noticeably tall, tall. He’s 6’1″. Anyway, Joey was funny. Having just transcribed this and heard his responses again I realized he didn’t actually answer a couple of them. I think that’s a first.
What is your favorite word? Wicked
What is your least favorite word? [laughs] I don’t have a PG rated answer for that one. (Me: Really? For your least favorite word?) What is your least favorite word? I don’t have one.
What turns you on? Racecars
What turns you off? Every answer I come up with is not a good answer. (Me: [Inaudible]) No, it’s just not a good answer for me to say. That’s a loaded question (Me: No, it’s not. Just think of it as something you don’t like) Lying. I don’t like lying.
What sound or noise do you love? A big ol’ motor.
What sound or noise do you hate? Knives against a plate, or chalkboard scratch, that kind of thing.
What is your favorite curse word? Depends on the moment. [laughs]
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? I never really thought about trying anything else. Maybe hockey, I enjoy hockey a lot. Hockey’s cool.
What profession would you not like to do? I would not want to sit behind a desk all day, that’d be hard for me.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Come on in!
