UPDATE (7:00 p.m. ET): Joey Logano‘s No. 22 Penske Racing Ford has flunked post-race inspection after winning today’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway. NASCAR reported on Twitter that Logano’s car was too low in the front on both sides of the car and that the series would “look at it first thing next week.”
In a race that only saw four drivers on the lead lap at the end, Logano earned his fourth consecutive NASCAR Nationwide Series victory at Dover International Speedway – becoming the only driver to pull off the feat at the “Monster Mile” in any of NASCAR’s national touring categories.
The win also kept the momentum going for the No. 22 Penske Racing NNS team, which was triumphant one week ago at Kentucky Speedway with 19-year-old Ryan Blaney.
Logano’s main competition, Kyle Busch, was also stout this afternoon but was undone by a strategy call to stay out on the track during the first two cautions of the race. Unable to catch a third yellow, he was forced to pit under green and had to pit one more time to make it to the finish.
Busch had a lead of nearly ten seconds after a pit stop cycle ended around Lap 125, but on Lap 142, Logano was able to catch Busch and pass him, going on to a 14.6-second victory over runner-up Kyle Larson. Busch, on the other hand, had to pit with 24 laps to go and wound up eighth after leading 89 laps.
Meanwhile, the NNS championship took a big turn after points leader Sam Hornish Jr. was hit with a pit road speeding penalty on Lap 117 and was subsequently relegated to a 17th place finish. That spelled good news for Austin Dillon, whose sixth-place finish enabled him to whittle his deficit to the former Indy 500 winner down to four points.
