Joey Logano has advanced into the next round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship by winning Sunday's Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, a race plagued with accidents that involved several of the Chase members.
Logano took the lead from Kevin Harvick following a restart with 30 laps to go and then held off the field in a pair of restarts in the closing laps, including one for a green-white-checkered finish, before crossing the finish line 1.15 seconds ahead of second-place finisher Kyle Larson, a rookie this season.
Logano, who hails from nearby Middletown, Connecticut, scored his fourth win of the season and the seventh of his Sprint Cup Series career. His first victory in the series occurred in a rain-shortened race at this flat 1.058-mile New England track during his 2009 rookie season. Logano's Cup debut also happened here in September 2008.
