“It makes up a lot for last week, ” Logano said Sunday after notching his first Sprint Cup victory on a road course and second of the season. “It’s nice it played out this time”.

“We’ve had really fast cars but the circumstances have just gotten the best of us”, said Harvick, who led a race-high 29 laps.

“He has zero chance of winning the championship, and I’ll make sure of it”, Smith said. When he did it caused Harvick to burn additional fuel rather than conserve and when he finally ran dry on the final lap Logano buzzed by to take the checkered flag.

A moment of silence for Ward is planned Saturday at Canandaigua Motorsports Park and the anniversary of his death is race day on Sunday. “It’s a great tune-up for tomorrow and a testament to Team Penske and what they can do”. “We’d be back in the 30s somewhere”.

It was only a matter of time before Kyle Busch jumped into the top-30 in points. It was just all I could do to really keep up with him there at the end, but I fought through some issues there. “We have clearly received one thing clicking”. Harvick had enough momentum to carry his Chevrolet SS past the finish line, but not before Kyle Busch narrowly beat him there to take third.

Logano wins Xfinity race: Joey Logano won the NASCAR Xfinity race at Watkins Glen global Saturday, outdueling Penske Racing teammate Brad Keselowski.

In six career starts at Watkins Glen, Allmendinger has two top-fives and four top-10s, and has the third-best driver rating (100.5).

Putting the Kevin Ward tragedy in the rear view mirror is impossible for many; including Tony Stewart.

The Ward family hopes that the lawsuit will hold Stewart responsible for killing their son and show him there are consequences when someone recklessly takes another person’s life.

AJ Allmendinger, the defending race victor and pole-sitter gunning for an additional victory that may have given a second Chase berth for the one-car JTG Daugherty staff, led the primary 20 laps with Martin Truex Jr.in tow, however he was handed the subsequent time round and dropped to 3rd because the No. 47 Chevy started to fade.

Logano and Busch both pitted with 32 laps remaining Sunday, but Logano didn’t worry about late cautions or whether the race could go extra laps.

Harvick, Kenseth and others last pitted for fuel and tires just before a red flag for track clean-up on lap 51 of the 90-lap race.

“It means we lead the field to Turn 1, at least”, Allmendinger said.

“I like the way they have got this set up”, said Joe Andrews of Hatfield, Mass. “You come in and you are not standing in a long line, they direct you right to the registers”. Truex’s possibilities disappeared when he suffered a flat left entrance tire and was pressured to pit with 22 laps left across the 2.45-mile pure terrain course. He finished 25th.

In 2007, Gordon had the lead with two laps to go with Stewart pressing and spun out entering the first turn, handing Stewart an unexpected victory. He then steadily mounted an aggressive charge back and got past Harvick for second after the final turn.

“Sorry man. I don’t think it’s going to happen today”, Allmendinger told crew chief Brian Burns while running in the top 10 just past the halfway point of the race.

Average Speed of Race victor: 91.420 miles per hour.

After the final delay, Logano sailed away on the restart and won by just over a second.

Joey Logano leaves the pits with a gas can stuck to his car during the Xfinity Series race Saturday at Watkins Glen International. Logano was penalized for the incident but rallied to win the race
