LONG POND, Pa. - Nearly three years after a downpour produced Joey Logano's first career Sprint Cup win, NASCAR's one-time wunderkind got a chance to take the checkered flag "the right way" on Sunday at Pocono Raceway. By utilizing a bump-and-run on leader Mark Martin in the third turn with a little more than four laps remaining in the Pocono 400, Logano regained the lead and pulled away from the field to take the checkered flag by several car-lengths (0.997 seconds). After the two made contact in Turn 3 on Lap 156, Logano's No. 20 Toyota slid inside of Martin's No. 55 Camry at the start/finish line, then went ahead to stay with a gutsy dive through Turn 1. "I knew my car was better than his," Logano said, tears welling in his eyes after he became Pocono's youngest winner at 22 years, 17 days.

Joey Logano has a perpetual smile on his face, and for good reason. On Saturday, the motor-sports wunderkind turned 18 - the minimum age required to compete on any of NASCAR's three premier circuits. While he feasted on a 150-pound cake baked in the shape of his race car, Joe Gibbs, the team owner and Hall of Fame football coach, sang "Happy Birthday. " Tomorrow, Logano will make his Nationwide Series debut at Dover International Speedway under the weight of tremendous expectations, some self-inflicted and others placed on his shoulders by people in the know.

BRISTOL, Tenn. - Kasey Kahne's bumper-banging battle with Brad Keselowski was just the first act in an action-packed Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Former teammates Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano exchanged words after the race because Hamlin spun Logano as Logano was racing for the lead. A flat tire knocked Jeff Gordon and Matt Kenseth out of the race while they were running 1-2. A caution put Kahne and Keselowski side-by-side for a restart with 39 laps to go. Keselowski either spun his tires or the Hamlin-Logano feud disrupted his start, and Kahne sailed away for his first career win at Bristol.

Jack Roush joked Friday that Pocono Raceway - in the heart of a resort area that once was a traditional destination for newlyweds - would be a fitting place for Tony Stewart's "honeymoon" as a first-year driver/owner to end. Stewart chuckled at the rival owner's jab but admitted: "He's right - it's been a honeymoon to this point [because] we haven't had to go through the lows yet. We will get a dose of reality at some point. Every race team does. " Less than 24 hours later, Roush's prediction sounded eerily prescient.

JOLIET, Ill. - When "The Captain" asked, Joey Logano answered. Did he ever. Logano held off Sam Hornish Jr. to win the NASCAR Nationwide race at Chicagoland Speedway yesterday, leading a sweep of top two spots for Roger Penske after the owner asked him to drive the No. 22 car on a rare weekend off for the Sprint Cup series. "Really big for us to get a 1-2 finish for Penske. That's awesome," Logano said. "To come out here, our goal is to win this thing. That's why I came out here on my off week, it was to come out here and win. " Penske, nicknamed "The Captain," approached Logano this month during the NASCAR stop at Daytona and asked if he would drive in the first of two Nationwide races at Chicagoland this season.

Three states and just shy of 1,000 miles separate Iowa Speedway from Pocono Raceway. Most NASCAR drivers this weekend will choose to race at just one: the Nationwide race in Iowa or the Party in the Poconos 400 Sprint Cup race at Pocono. But Joey Logano, Joe Nemechek, and two others plan to race in both states with a turnaround of just hours. It's a grueling haul that will require several flights as the drivers try to practice, qualify, and race at each track. For example, Logano initially planned to start Friday at Pocono for practice and qualifying before flying to Iowa later in the day for a practice.

A RECURRING theme in NASCAR is a resident villain. Drivers in "black hats" have included Darrell Waltrip, Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Kurt and Kyle Busch. Say hello to the 2013 villain, Joey Logano: "Here's our black-hat selection, Mr. Logano. What size do you wear?" The Connecticut native seems like a nice, young guy. But there is a sense among some in NASCAR that Logano, 22, is spoiled. Starting at age 6, his racing was financed by his father, Tom. A couple of years ago, after encountering a problem racing with Kevin Harvick, Logano said it was clear who wears the firesuit in the Harvick family, a clear reference to Harvick's wife, DeLana.
