Joey Logano goes drag racing, screams ‘like a little girl’

Joey Logano swapped rides with an NHRA superstar on Wednesday.

Logano and two-time NHRA Funny Car champion Cruz Pedregon — both sponsored by Snap-On — hit the pavement at Charlotte Motor Speedway and zMAX Dragway, as Pedregon got behind the wheel of a Cup car and Logano powered a Cobra Jet.

"It was a pretty awesome experience for sure," said Logano. "I’ve been to several NHRA drag races and had the chance to stand on the starting line and feel the power those cars have. So to get a chance to take a couple of passes in the Cobra Jet was intense. I can only imagine what it’s like to sit behind the wheel of a race-ready Funny Car or Top Fuel Dragster. Those of us who compete in a form of motorsports always wonder what it’s like to drive another type of car. Hopefully, Cruz got that experience today. I know I did for sure."
