In perhaps his most dominant win of the NASCAR Nationwide Series season, Joey Logano led 184 of 200 laps at Dover for his seventh win of 2012.
He actually didn't start on pole – that honor went to his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, Darrell Wallace Jr. – but otherwise it was a Saturday cruise for the driver of the No. 18 SportClips Toyota.
“It's the second time here this year where we led a lot of laps,” he said. “My crew chief made it easy for me today. Both of us know what it takes to pass here. Timing is everything on passes, and you need to look three laps in advance. It's fun driving great race cars.”
Paul Menard finished second ahead of Michael Annett, who equaled his career best finish, Elliott Sadler and Kyle Busch in his own Toyota in the top five.
Sadler extended his series points lead to nine over Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who finished ninth and one spot ahead of Austin Dillon.
“It's good, but I like trophies. It's been a while since our last win at Chicago, and I'd like to get a couple more before the year is out,” said Sadler.
Stenhouse felt lucky to finish ninth fighting an ill-handling car all race. Dillon is 25 points behind Sadler and Sam Hornish Jr., who was in contention for a win before a late race flat tire that required an unscheduled pit stop, has now fallen 60 points behind.
The series has a week off before its next stop at Charlotte, N.C. on Oct. 12.
