Joey Logano‘s win Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway was big for the Team Penske driver both professionally and personally.
While it was his first Cup win in 36 races, it also marked his first chance to visit Victory Lane with son Hudson.
Logano celebrated his win in the GEICO 500 with wife Brittany and Hudson, who was born in January.
The successful birth of their first child came after the couple attempted vitro fertilization. Following their marriage in 2014, Brittany was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, a common health problem caused by an imbalance of reproductive hormones that can lead to infertility.
“It was amazing to pull into Victory Lane and celebrate with your guys,” Logano said. “When you turned around and saw Hudson and Brittany over there, I may have cried a little bit. … It’s a different feeling. Everyone always says, ‘You won’t understand until you have kids.’ I always kind of shook my head, ‘Okay.’ Now having a little guy, seeing him there, he may not remember, but for me, that was very special. For Brittany I hope it was, too. Something we’ll cherish forever. We’ll have a great family picture in Victory Lane at Talladega.”
