Joey Logano in Elite 8 of ‘Greatest Connecticut Athlete’ tournament

3 Comments

A few weeks ago we told you Joey Logano was part of the “Greatest Athlete in Connecticut History” tournament being put on by the folks over at WTNH.com.

Since then, the Team Penske driver has just kept winning and has now reached the Elite 8 of the tournament. Logano, a native of Middletown, Conn., is the only active athlete remaining in the online tournament after upsetting No. 1 seed and Super Bowl champion Steve Young.

The defending Daytona 500 champion and winner of Sunday’s race at Watkins Glen now faces 11-seed Jimmy Piersall, an MLB outfielder from 1950 to 1967.

Currently, Piersall is beating Logano 15,136 votes to 13,179.
