Joey Logano wanted it. The grin, pushing his cheeks into a giddy squint, was conclusive. But he didn’t need it, this gently warn, circa-last-century leather Tide Racing jacket.
“That thing is money,” he said.
Plucked from a wooden rack near the box of handsaws and dented metal of a Grapette soda cooler, the orange-and-blue treasure, resplendent with striped pocket piping and flip collar, soon was pulled over Logano’s Team Penske warm-up. If only the jacket didn’t fit, the lanky Sprint Cup driver said, depending on “how big my guts are here,” he would have his excuse to put it back.
