Joey Logano had a reversal of fortunes of sorts Sunday.  A week after he ran out of fuel while leading at Pocono with the laps to go, Logano made the right pit call and had enough fuel to power past Kevin Harvick who ran out of fuel one corner away from a win. Logano was able to score his first NASCAR Sprint Cup road course victory at the Cheez-It 355 at the Glen.  The win came a day after he rode to victory in Saturday’s Xfinity series at Watkins Glen making him the first driver to sweep a weekend at the 2.45 mile road course. Here’s how it all went down Sunday at the Glen.

AJ Allmendinger led the field to the green with his second pole of the year, the first coming at the other road course for the NASCAR Sprint Cup series, Sonoma, in June; Martin Truex Jr. fell in to second behind, Tony Stewart took over third, Harvick fourth, Kyle Larson fifth.  At the end of the first lap the field as mainly single file; the exception was up front as Kyle Busch was trying to take fifth from Larson. Busch took over the fifth stop on lap two; Harvick got by Stewart for third just as the field entered turn 1 on lap 3.

Kyle Busch got by Stewart for fourth in turn 1 on lap 5; Larson followed. Jimmie Johnson missed the innerloop and was forced to stop to avoid a penalty; he lost 15 positions and rejoined the field 22nd. MORE>>>
