Logano takes another Nationwide win at Dover

RECOMMENDED READING


DOVER, Del. — His chase for a Sprint Cup championship all but over, Joey Logano turned his pursuit toward Dover history.

Logano dominated Saturday at Dover International Speedway once more and took the checkered flag in the track's Nationwide series race for the fourth straight time. Logano became the first driver to win four straight at Dover in NASCAR's second-tier series.

He pulled away in the No. 22 Ford down the stretch in the 5-Hour Energy 200 on the "Monster Mile" and was never seriously challenged.

"It's been my favorite racetrack ever since I started here," said Logano, who has swept the two Dover Nationwide races the last two seasons.

However, his Ford flunked inspection because both sides of the front were too low. NASCAR will announce penalties later.

Logano, who started on the pole and led 106 laps, won for the third time this season.

Trucks: Timothy Peters earned his second series victory this year and seventh overall, pulling away on a late restart at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Series victory leader Ron Hornaday led on the restart of the Smith's 350 with two laps to go, but quickly dropped to fifth and finished sixth. Peters beat Johnny Sauter by 0.559 seconds.

Grand-Am: Jordan Taylor and Max Angelelli earned their third consecutive victory and clinched the final Daytona Prototype title in the season finale in Lakeville, Conn. Next year the series is merging with the American Le Mans Series to form the United SportsCar Championship.

NHRA: Funny Car points leader Matt Hagan took the No. 1 qualifying position in the Midwest Nationals at St. Louis in 4.001 seconds at 320.20 mph. Shawn Langdon (Top Fuel), Allen Johnson (Pro Stock), and Hector Arana Sr. (Pro Stock Motorcycle) also led heading into today's eliminations.
