Joey Logano showed that he is the favorite in the first race of NASCAR’s third round of the Chase Friday.  Logano, who has won the last three races and who was fastest in practice earlier in the day, put down a lap of 98.548 miles per hour and will lead the field to the green Sunday in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Goody’s Headache Relief Shot 500. It was Logano’s series high sixth pole of the season, his second of the year at Martinsville and the 15th of his career.

“It’s an amazing run we’re on right now,” Logano said. “I’m just the lucky guy that gets to drive this thing right now.  It’s so much fun.  We’re doing everything right, but all of that can end in a blink of an eye, so we just have to keep our focus. “

It also marks the second time this season he has swept the poles, the first coming at Richmond. MORE>>>
