Joey Logano qualified 21st in the #20 Home Depot Toyota with a lap time of 27.630 (177.980 mph).

How was your qualifying lap?

“Just loose — we were loose all the way through. We have a lot of speed in to turn one and then loose all the way through turns three and four trying to hustle it. We couldn’t carry the speed we needed to.”

What’s your game plan for Saturday night’s race?

“Patience here — this track requires patience. You want to pass cars, but being there at the end and having the right track position, that’s what it’s all about.”

Do you like going to race tracks with a lot of history like Darlington?

“I think it’s cool to go to places like that. I think it’s cool there’s a bunch of history here and it’s fun to see what’s happened here in the past. It makes you want to win here a little bit more.”
