At the track where he scored his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win in 2009, New England native Joey Logano went to victory in Sunday’s Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  Logano took the lead with 27 laps to go and was able to survive two more restarts for his seventh career win.  With his fourth win of the season, Logano will advance to the second round of NASCAR’s Chase joining his teammate Brad Keselowski.

“It feels good to go into the next one,” Logano said in victory lane. “We’ve got to keep doing what we’re doing though.  We’ve got to keep our eye on the prize and think about the big trophy at the end.”

Logano first took the lead on lap 171 during a round of pit stops.  But on lap 245, Logano pitted and took four tires while the rest of the lead group stayed out. By lap 261 though, Logano had fought his way back and retook the lead for the final time on lap 273.

“This is my home race track, the coolest place to win for me,” Logano said. MORE>>>
