Logano has won the last three Nationwide events at the Dover track. He won for Penske Racing; the previous two were for the Joe Gibbs Racing team. Logano, 23, has 19 victories in 114 career starts in NASCAR’s second-tier series.
Logano took two tires on a pit stop rather than four, was out front for a restart with 34 laps left and led the rest of the way. Kasey Kahne of Enumclaw finished sixth of 40; he led once for 14 laps.
It was Logano’s first Nationwide victory of the season. He won nine times last year.
Mike Conway dominated the first of the weekend’s two Detroit Grand Prix IndyCar Series races, finishing nearly 13 seconds ahead of defending series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay.
Conway’s margin of victory set a race record, surpassing the 12.2-second cushion 1999 winner Dario Franchitti had over Paul Tracy. Conway made team owner Dale Coyne seem like the smartest guy in the Motor City. Conway’s only other IndyCar victory was in 2011 in Long Beach, Calif.
Coyne picked Conway to drive one of the team’s two cars this weekend. During last Sunday’s Indy 500, Conway helped work on his father’s vegetable garden in England.
