Logano Wins Nationwide Race At Dover
NEWS 11 June 2012 - 1:48pm
DOVER, Del. (AP) - Bell sponsored driver Joey Logano had wasted enough shots at winning Dover to feel like he was on the brink of doing it again.
Out in front for most of the race, Logano fell back after a four-tire pit stop, paving the way for Ryan Truex to take the lead. Back in the pack, Logano wondered if he'd blown another win at Dover on June 2nd.
"I was thinking the same thing was happening today," Logano said. "It figures."
Logano instead powered his way to the lead with six laps left when Truex got mired in lapped traffic on Saturday to win the Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway.
"When you lead it and you think you gave it away, and then you get it back there at the end," Logano said, "that's exciting."
Truex started from the pole and raced for the first time since he needed an appendectomy nearly two weeks ago. He had the top car toward the end of the race until he got loose with less than 10 laps left. Logano capitalized and made the late charge outside through a pair of lapped drivers to zip past Truex for his fourth Nationwide win of the season.
