Joey is talking to a sports shrink. Have you called yours lately? (photo credit: NASCAR)
Looks like we’re going to see a few trends this year in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup series and one of those happens to be drivers seeing and consulting with sports psychologists.
The newest driver added to the list: Joey Logano.
So correct me if I’m wrong but it seems that two of the three drivers at JGR are seeing one now, right? Yes, I am correct but I still think the one that needs the most help needs more than a sports shrink.
Are you listening, Little Shrub?
Joey apparently is seeing the same sports psychologist that Denny Hamlin is currently consulting with according to USA Today who reported Logano’s meetings with sports psycologist Bob Rotella.
It goes without saying, however, that Joey recommends seeing a sports psycholgist to anybody. Maybe I’ll give it a whirl sometime:
I was against it at first, thinking, ‘I don’t need a shrink…But it’s not about that, it’s confidence. It’s not that you’re screwed up in the head. It’s not like you’re a weirdo. I think it’s good for anybody. I have a whole new outlook. I’d recommend it to anybody. (Joey Logano via USA Today)
In other racing news it’s been confirmed that Robbie Loomis has been let go of his duties at Richard Petty Motorsports who has spent the past six years as RPM’s chief operating officer. I hate seeing this man out of a job because he kicked some major butt with Jeff Gordon back in 2001 and won twenty-three races in five years with him.
