NASCAR At Pocono Results: Cheap Shot Nets Joey Logano Second-Career Win

Joey Logano "won" his second-career race at Pocono Raceway Sunday, knocking Mark Martin across the first turn with fewer than five laps remaining and pulling away to score the win. Martin finished second ahead of Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson, and Denny Hamlin.

Clint Bowyer finished sixth, ahead of Matt Kenseth. Dale Earnhardt Jr. had his best race in years, leading 36 laps, but was unable to gain the track position lost when he pitted for fuel on the next-to-last caution of the race. Rounding out the top-10 were Paul Menard and Jamie McMurray.

Logano's cheap move on Mark Martin follows up an incident at Darlington a few weeks ago when he put Elliott Sadler -a championship challenger in that series - into the wall on a restart. Logano won that race as well. The victory may raise his stock with Joe Gibbs Racing - he's been rumored to be out of the No. 20 Toyota nearly as long as he's been in it - but long-time fans will think little of his race-"winning" move on the beloved veteran.
