|Logano Wins at Kentucky for Third Straight Time
|SPARTA, Ky. (AP) -- Joey Logano became the first Nationwide Series driver to win three consecutive races at the same track when starting from the pole as he won the Meijer 300 at Kentucky Speedway on Saturday night.
Logano had to beat the rain, which was rapidly moving into the area, and Edwards to pick up his first Nationwide victory of the season at the 1.5-mile tri-oval track.
Points leader Brad Keselowski, who started 25th, finished third, while Brendan Gaughan, whom Logano passed to take the lead for the final time, finished fourth.
Logano led 109 of the 200 laps, while fifth-place Reed Sorenson led 49.
