Late Win For Logano

52211Jpg
KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Joey Logano made a late pass around the dominant car of Kyle Busch and scored his fourth Nationwide Series win of the season in Saturday's Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway.

Busch was out front for 173 laps but a late race caution bunched the field.

That allowed teammate Logano to get a run on Busch and he drove to the top spot with four laps to go and went on to the victory.

"He outdrove me," Busch said. "We had a car that should have won the race."

The winning move came on the high side of the track and Logano said that was his only hope of getting the victory.

"That was just all I had," Logano said. "I knew I wasn't going to get him on the bottom."

Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick and Greg Biffle, who started last in the field after crashing his primary car in qualifying, rounded out the top five.

Justin Allgaier, Carl Edwards, Scott Speed, Clint Bowyer and Reed Sorenson completed the first ten qualifiers.

Despite the disappointing ending to his day, Busch set several records on Saturday afternoon.

Busch broke the NASCAR Nationwide Series single-season record for laps led and now has 2,226 in 2009. Sam Ard had previously held the record with 2,127 laps led in 1984.

Busch also tied the single-season record for runner-up finishes with 10, a mark Jack Ingram set in 1983.

The NASCAR Nationwide Series now heads to Auto Club Speedway next Saturday afternoon for the Copart 300.
