Logano to appear on 'Man v. Food Nation'

August 11, 2011, Official Release,

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Giving new meaning to pulling double duty, Joey Logano will finish more than 200 miles of road racing at Watkins Glen on Sunday, then participate in a food challenge Monday in New York for an upcoming episode of Travel Channel's Man v. Food Nation.

Logano, driver of the No. 20 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing, is looking forward to meeting host Adam Richman and participating in the food challenge. Richman, who will serve as the Grand Marshal for Sunday's Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at The Glen, has traveled the country taking on various food challenges the past three years.

Logano will learn details of the challenge shortly before the shoot and fans can see the NASCAR edition of Man v. Food Nation on Oct. 19 at 9 p.m. ET on Travel Channel.

"I watch the show and I think Adam is hysterical," Logano said. "I am looking forward to spending the weekend at Watkins Glen with him and showing him around the garage. Outside of that I am not sure what I have gotten myself into with the eating contest. Best case scenario is I have a large portion of Chicken Parm, which is my favorite meal. What would not be so good for me is if I had to eat a large amount of beans. Outside of green beans, I am not a fan of the others."
