Joey Logano is still relatively young in the NASCAR world, where the oldest drivers are in their 40s. But at 27 and currently in his 10th season at NASCAR's highest level, the No. 22 Ford driver recently took on the role of mentor with a twist.

On the Discovery Channel's new series, Twin Turbos, Logano works with father-son duo Doug and 23-year-old Brad DeBerti to help guide Brad toward a successful NASCAR career.

A couple years ago while racing trucks, Brad was in a near-fatal accident that left him hospitalized with serious injuries. But as Brad looks to continue his push toward NASCAR, Logano serves as his mentor while the family builds custom cars and trucks to fund his career.

Joseph Thomas Logano (born May 24, 1990) nicknamed "Sliced Bread", is an American professional stock car racing driver. He currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series

Logano recently spoke with For The Win about his experience on the show - which premiered last month - how it can benefit NASCAR and how he's adjusting to fatherhood with a newborn son.

This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.

So how did you first get involved with Twin Turbos?

I was able to have a relationship with Discovery before that with Fast N' Loud, so being able to meet Brad and Doug out there at SEMA (the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association show) was a fun experience, and we had a good time and kind of hit it off.

So this wasn't a hard sell for them to get you to do the show?

Yeah, and for a lot of different reasons. I think Brad and Doug are good people, and they kind of fit into the kind of people I like to surround myself with. They have fun a lot. They're smart, they work hard, so it's something pretty neat there.

Racing Ladder to NASCAR Career is More High-Tech Than Ever

  Racing Ladder to NASCAR Career is More High-Tech Than Ever With racing simulators becoming more realistic and approachable, the next generation of drivers is proving itself virtually.Lately, dirt racing has been the route to take to NASCAR’s upper echelon. That path to NASCAR may have been an accidental one, at least at first, when the likes of Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart took a route of dirt and sprint cars to what they thought would lead to an IndyCar career, but surprise, both wound up in NASCAR where they both found success that included multiple championships at the Cup level.

But I think also from an exposure side for our sport, it's important to do things that are outside of the normal media outlets that we have in our sport to grow our sport. I think all car people should be NASCAR fans, in my opinion. I'm a car person. I love car builds, I love driving them, obviously, and I love watching their shows.

You're still young by nascar standards, so is it weird mentoring someone?

I'm in a unique position over here. This is my 10th season racing in (the) Cup (Series), so for me, I've got the veteran experience. But I'm still pretty young, which makes it fun because we can relate a lot better because he's close to my age.

What's the best advice you gave to Brad?

In all honesty, the information I can give him as far as taking the right steps for the next level is probably more helpful toward him than me being an actual driver-coach right now. Eventually, I will be able to help him even more than that. But telling him what type of car he needs to be in, racing the right types of races, surrounding himself with the right people, getting him the experience in the best way possible - I think that's where I can help the most right now.

Mailbag: Will NASCAR expand its influence into Asia?

  Mailbag: Will NASCAR expand its influence into Asia? On this week's NASCAR Mailbag, we look into the difference between manufacturers at the top level of NASCAR and the prospect of the sport's expansion into Asia.Griff, much of the actual car chassis - what is underneath the body - is covered by very strict safety rules issues by NASCAR. Because of that, some of the body areas are very similar across all manufacturers. However, where you see the biggest differences are in the nose, the rear end and the contours (shaping) of the body on the hood and sides of the car. And as you mentioned, each manufacturer produces its own engine in the Cup series.

Kenseth down a few laps waits for Joey Logano to catch up to him, and dumps him in turn one.

Have you guys stayed in touch even though you're done shooting all of this?

Yeah, I still talk to him and text him, give him a call every now and again, see how they're doing. We get along, so it's a natural fit.

Can you relate to him having been in a bad racing wreck?

There are some things that come to mind, but he's gotten into a lot harder crash than I've gotten into. I say harder, but he's gotten hurt more than I've ever been hurt. So for his mental psyche, I've been in a lot of crashes, so I can kind help with some of the stuff about getting back into the car. But there's only so much you can do there. You've just gotta get back in it and drive.

You're on TV all the time, but what's the best part about being on a TV show like this?

The fun part is you can just be yourself. I think one of the best parts for this is when we get interviewed at the race track, it's usually right after you get out of the car and your emotions are running wild. You're fired up, you're hot, you're tired, and people know you by the interview that you give in that moment.

Most athletes will probably agree that who you are in a competitive atmosphere and who you actually are are two different people. One of the best parts for me about the show is that it's a way for me to show my personality and who I actually really am away from the race track.

You and your wife just had your first child a few weeks ago. What's the most interesting thing you've learned about your son or his personality?

He looks like my wife, and he acts like me is what I've figured out. He is antsy and wide open. He gets bored very easily, which is kind of funny because he wants to have something going on all the time. He's always kicking and moving and can't sit still, so that's definitely from me for sure. So that gets blamed on me a lot.


Do you want him to follow in your footsteps as a race car driver?

I want him to do whatever he wants to do. If he wants to race, that's great. If he wants to work in an office, that's great. Whatever he wants to do is fine with me. I think whatever he does, just be the best in the world at it and do the best you possibly can. If that's picking up garbage or driving a race car or anything in between, that's fine with me.
