Joey Logano grabs big win at Charlotte to start 2nd round of Chase

8After rain forced the postponement of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) Bank of America 500 from Saturday night to Sunday afternoon, it was Joey Logano taking control and never looking back to victory lane at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Logano, who led the most laps – 227 out of 334 – and secures a spot in round 3 (Eliminator Round) in “the chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship,” received his fourth series victory and 24th top-10 finish of the 2015 season. This is also Logano’s 12th series career victory in 249 races, and his first series victory in 14 races at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Last week’s “monster” slayer (AAA 400) at Dover Int’l Speedway, Kevin Harvick, finished 0.703 seconds behind Logano to finish second, and they were followed by Martin Truex Jr. finishing third, Denny Hamlin fourth and Kurt Busch finished fifth.

Rounding out the top-10 finishing positions were Carl Edwards claiming sixth-place, Austin Dillon seventh, Jeff Gordon eighth, Brad Keselowski ninth and Aric Almirola taking home 10th-place.

With his victory, Logano leaves with a 6-point lead over Kevin Harvick, but also leaves knowing he’ll advance to the Eliminator Round (Martinsville, Texas and Phoenix) no matter what happens in the next two weeks at Kansas and Talladega – the final two races of the Contender Round..

RACE NOTES:
Average Speed: 129.500 MPH
Time of Race: 3 Hrs, 35 Mins, 05 Secs.
Margin of Victory: 0.703 Seconds
Lead Changes: 14 among 10 drivers
Cautions: 9 for 44 laps

Up Next: Race two in round two of the Contender Round with the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway on Sunday, Oct. 18th. The event has an approximate starting timing of 2:15 p.m (ET) on NBCSN.

Carl Edwards wins Sunday’s Coke 600

CF0brYyWEAAGWh4Saturday night under the lights at Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS), it was Carl Edwards doing his signature back-flip after winning his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) race with Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), and finishes a comfortable 4.785 seconds ahead of Greg Biffle for the Coca-Cola 600 victory

Edwards, who ended a 31-race winless drought, received his first series win and second top-ten finish of the 2015 season, his 24th series career win and his first series win at CMS.

Following Edwards and Biffle to the drop of the checkered flag were Dale Earnhardt Jr. finishing third, pole-sitter Matt Kenseth fourth and Martin Truex Jr. (who led the most laps – 131 out of 400) finished fifth.

Rounding out the top-10 finishing positions were Ryan Newman taking sixth-place, Brad Keselowski seventh, Denny Hamlin eighth, the reigning series champion and current points leader, Kevin Harvick ninth and Kurt Busch brought home 10th.

With his ninth-place finish, Kevin Harvick leaves Charlotte with a 41-point lead over Martin Truex Jr.
