WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - Joey Logano won the NASCAR Xfinity race at Watkins Glen International on Saturday, outdueling Penske Racing teammate Brad Keselowski.
Logano, who started from pole, overcame a stop-and-go penalty early in the caution-filled race and kept Keselowski at bay after a restart with four laps to go in the 82-lap race. It's the first road course win of his career and 25th in NASCAR's second-tier series.
The Penske duo led all but three laps in a race on the 2.45-mile layout that was delayed by seven cautions for 20 laps.
Series points leader Chris Buescher was third, followed by Boris Said and Ty Dillon.
Regan Smith, fourth in points, finished 20th after running in the top 10 early in the race. Smith rallied from early troubles but was doomed to a bad finish after being taken out by Dillon late in the race, and the two nearly came to blows after the race.
Chase Elliott, second in points, was seventh.
