Logano earns Nationwide victory

October 3, 2010


— Joey Logano has plenty of experience racing teammate Kyle Busch for wins.

He’s also had his fill of losing races to Busch.

Given another chance Saturday to knock off his teammate, Logano got aggressive on a late restart to get past Busch, then used a push from Brad Keselowski to hold on at Kansas Speedway for his second Nationwide Series win this year.

Busch, who led a race-high 64 laps while chasing his 12th Nationwide win of the year, faded to third behind Logano and Keselowski.

It appeared Mike Wallace, who used fuel strategy to grab the lead late, maybe would steal the win. But a caution for Trevor Bayne’s spin forced him to surrender the lead to pit for gas.

Logano has six second-place finishes this season and lost to Busch in three of them.

“Every time you finish second, it seems that wall is a little higher, and it’s cool to get over it,” Logano said. “It definitely gets frustrating when you feel like you should have won a lot more races. That also makes you want it a little more and makes it a little sweeter when you do win.”
