The wins just keep coming for Joey Logano in the Nationwide Series. This is Logano’s seventh win in the Nationwide Series this year. Logano didn’t start the race up front but that’s where he finished. Logano has now swept the Nationwide Race’s at Dover this season.
Darrell Wallace Jr started on the pole and he couldn’t stay up there for long. Justin Allgaier passed Wallace Jr on the first lap. It took Logano thirteen laps to get up front and he passed Allgaier on lap 13 for the lead.
The first caution of the afternoon came out on lap 46. The caution was for the competition caution NASCAR scheduled because of heavy rains the previous night in Dover. Kasey Kahne took two tires under the caution and he took the lead on the restart. Kahne couldn’t even hold the lead going into turn one and Logano passed him for the lead.
The halfway mark approached quickly in the race and Logano led followed by Allgaier, Kahne, Kyle Busch and Austin Dillon. The second caution of the day came out on lap 116 for Jeremy Clements who had smoke poor out the rear of his car after something broke.
Justin Allgaier was having a great run until he had to make an unscheduled pit stop after having a tire issue. Allgaier ended up going to the garage and he came back in the race to finish 30th. Sam Hornish Jr had been running down Joey Logano but Hornish had a tire going down with 36 laps to go and he had to pit. The third and final yellow flag came out with 24 laps to go for the No.39 of Tim Andrews who blew his engine.
The restart got a little wild after Kasey Kahne couldn’t get going and he got passed by a lot of cars. Kahne stacked up the whole field and Darrell Wallace Jr almost was spun around but he made a great save. Kahne bounced back to finish eighth.
Joey Logano continued to dominant the race and he went on to win at the Monster Mile. Logano said in victory lane that “My Monster trophy from my last win here needed a friend” and now that trophy has a friend because Logano will be bringing home another “Miles the Monster” trophy.
The Championship race is heating up and Elliot Sadler still leads the way after a fourth place finish. Second place in the standings is Ricky Stenhouse Jr and he wound up ninth. Austin Dillon remains in third place in the points and he finished tenth. Sadler now leads Stenhouse Jr by nine points and Sadler leads Dillon by 25.
The Nationwide Series is off next week but they will return on October 12th at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
