HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Joe Gibbs Racing has selected 18-year-old Joe Logano to replace Tony Stewart in the No. 20 Sprint Cup Toyota next season.
Logano was introduced Monday at the team's race shop, less than two months after he made his debut in the Nationwide Series.
Home Depot will remain the primary sponsor of the car, and Greg Zipadelli will continue as crew chief.
Logano became the youngest winner on NASCAR's second-tier series in June. While he's considered by many to be NASCAR's next big star, Logano has never driven in a Sprint Cup race.
Logano will take over for Stewart after he leaves JGR at the end of the season to co-own and drive for the team now known as Haas-CNC.
