BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Joey Logano led flag-to-flag Saturday to win the Xfinity Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Erik Jones started from the pole but was passed by Logano before he completed the first lap. Logano led all 300 laps in cruising to his second Xfinity Series win of the season. In three starts in NASCAR's second-tier series, Logano has two wins and a second-place finish for Team Penske.

Daniel Suarez finished a career-best second and was followed by Chris Buescher, who moved into a tie with Ty Dillon for the series points lead.

Jones finished fourth and was followed by Dillon, Chase Elliott, Kevin Harvick and Brian Scott.

Brendan Gaughan, Elliott Sadler and Brennan Poole rounded out the top 10.

Only 12 drivers finished on the lead lap.
