Logano wins third Xfinity race in four years

Logano wins third Xfinity race in four years

Truex ran second to Elliott for most of the final stage before beginning a steady close.

Chase Elliott's days as a non-winner in NASCAR's premier series came to an end Sunday when he drove to victory in Sunday's Go Bowling at The Glen Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at the Watkins Glen International circuit in upstate NY.

Busch dominated until early in the second stage when, on Lap 27, he was passed by Elliott for the lead.

Chase Elliott (9) leads the pack through the esses during a NASCAR Cup Series auto race, Sunday, Aug. 5, 2018, in Watkins Glen, N.Y.

Truex closed to the back bumper of Elliott's No. 9 Chevy as his auto bobbled slightly out of the first turn on the final lap around the 2.45-mile natural terrain layout.

Kyle Busch finished third, 20 seconds behind, followed by Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones, a triumvirate of Joe Gibbs Racing Toyotas. That gave Elliott the lead, which he held until the end.

Midway through the segment, the Big 3 of Busch, Truex and Kevin Harvick were running in the top 10, but Elliott dominated and beat Busch by 1.3 seconds.

Busch took charge on the restart, pulling away to a lead of almost three seconds over Truex, with Hamlin third and Chase Elliott fourth.

Eight times he had finished second during his Cup career. Elliott, 62, will be the first member of the NASCAR Hall of Fame to compete in a race after being inducted into the Hall of Fame. His last Xfinity Series race was in October 2005 at Memphis. "So thrilled, so emotional, so much relief, you know, working on three years hadn't won one".

NASCAR changed pre-race inspections this week to Sunday morning during its second-straight two-day event and only two cars failed.

Other Notables: #14 Clint Bowyer P11, #12 Ryan Blaney P12, #11 Denny Hamlin P13, #88 Alex Bowman P14, #2 Brad Keselowski P17, #31 Ryan Newman P19, #10 Aric Almirola P22, #43 Bubba Wallace Jr P25, #3 Austin Dillon P27, #21 Paul Menard P28, #48 Jimmie Johnson P30, #22 Joey Logano P37.

So Elliott got a lift from his teammate, seven-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson.

Racing announced Saturday afternoon that the NASCAR Hall of Famer would race in the August 26 Xfinity Series race at Road America. Elliott hasn't made a NASCAR national series start since the 2012 Firecracker 400 at Daytona International Speedway.
