Perfect restart leads Joey Logano to first career Truck win

CBNrrFbUYAAnE23After a green-white-checkered (flags) dash to the finish, pole-sitter Joey Logano on Saturday, held off the reigning NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) champion, Matt Crafton – by 0.431 seconds – to win the Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway.

Logano, who led the most laps – 150 out of 258, received his first series career victory and gave Brad Keselowski Racing their second victory of the season. And with his victory, Logano also became the 26th driver to win a race in all three of NASCAR’s national series.

Following Logano and Crafton to the drop of the checkered flag were series Rookie of the Year (ROTY) contender, Erik Jones finishing third, Johnny Sauter fourth and Tyler Reddick finished fifth.

Rounding out the top-10 finishing positions were Daniel Suarez claiming sixth, James Buescher seventh, John Wes Townley eighth, Matt Tifft ninth and ROTY contender Justin Boston bringing home 10th-place.

With his second-place finish, Matt Crafton leaves Martinsville with a two-point lead over Tyler Reddick.

Another ROTY candidate, Erik Jones (95.381 MPH) put down the sixth fastest lap speed, while Tyler Young (95.371) was seventh, Gray Gaulding (95.347) eighth, John Wes Townley (95.333) ninth and Matt Tifft (95.290) rounds out the top-10 fastest drivers in the “Happy Hour” (final) practice session.
