We are very proud to announce that on August 8th Logan entered into a relationship with Motorsports Management International (MMI). This invitation to join the MMI group was offered to Logan after much due diligence on the part of the professionals at MMI. The talent scout personnel of MMI had been following Logan’s progress since late 2007 and had attended many of his races during the 2008 season. By extending the invitation to become one of MMI’s drivers under contract, MMI has placed Logan in an elite group of drivers that MMI currently manages. Among the drivers on the MMI roster are Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, Kasey Kahne, Bill Elliott, Matt Kenseth, Jamie McMurray and Dave Blaney to just name a few.
When asked about the MMI relationship Logan had these comments, “This is really unbelievable. I am very honored to have been asked to join the MMI roster of drivers. This let’s me know that my hard work has not gone unnoticed. That makes me want to continue to work hard and have fun racing, but it also makes me want to really take my driving skills to a much higher level. I know that I am not expected to have the same skill level as the guys that you see on the home page of MMI’s website at this stage of my career, but I also know that they believe my skill level can be that high. Now, I just need to keep improving so that I don’t dissappoint them or myself. I also need to thank everyone that has helped me during my racing career. Without those people taking an interest in me and helping me to race and improve, none of this would be happening. There are many people that have helped me, but there are a few that just can’t go unmentioned. Special thanks to my parents, my Uncle Dan, all of my grandparents and to the two crew chiefs that I have worked with so far, Dick Woodman and Chuck Moores.”
Over the past several weeks, we have been asked by people in the racing industry about Logan’s signing with MMI. Due to the contractual nature, we did not feel at liberty to disclose the existence of this relationship until we had an opportunity to discuss such a disclosure with the folks at MMI. Now that we have had the necessary discussions, we are officially disclosing Logan and MMI’s relationship. To anyone that we skirted on this issue before now, we apologize for maybe coming across less than truthful. We hope that you can understand our dilimema and understand our intentions.
Logan will finish out the 2008 season running in Late Models. We are working toward an announcement for 2009 in the near future.
